I just noticed this subtitle issue with mezzmo + bubbleUPNP + mxplayer, I have a movie with several subtitles like
Movie1.mp4
Movie1.en.srt
Movie1.en.forced.srt
but when playing the movie in BubbleUPNP + MxPlayer, I only see one subtitle show up, however if I view the metadata Info in BubbleUPNP it shows 3 streams, but stream #2 and #3 are the same name/url i suspect these should be different url links for each subtitle..

under mezzmo, the file properties - Subtitles it shows both subtitles listed and checked , both type external, I don't know why they aren't being listed in BubbleUPNP, I also tried Mezzmo Android app and it does list both subs, but I can't enable them or I check it and go back and it's unchecked, or just acts strange, I think it's also seeing both srt links as being the same so it messes up.
maybe I am doing something wrong, or it's a bug.
also no transcoding going on.

Hi,
Mezzmo only lists one subtitle in the item listing so BubbleUPnP will only know about one subtitle stream, not sure why it shows two. The Mezzmo app gets more metadata from the Mezzmo server so it knows about both subtitle files and should be able to switch between them using the Mezzmo internal video player. If using MX Player it will only know about the one subtitle stream that is provided to it when playing the file.

oh, is there anyway to fix that so it lists all subtitles? since I assumed it would list all the subtitles (for example if you had english, spanish, french..etc), it would list them so the user could select, also I had another type of file MKV with embedded subs, and also external subs and MX Player was able to detect both sub streams, but I guess this could be mx player directly reading the mkv and mezzmo sending the srt ? but this is why I always assumed it could stream multiple subtitles.

btw mezzmo video player did show both subtitles but for some reason I couldn't enable them both at once, I checked one and it would either not enable or disable the other one, and the selection menu is kinda hard to see on the tv since when you click the icon it goes window mode and the title bar blocks out the top subtitle text so you can't see if it's checked or not, frustrating when using a air mouse :) (subtitle selection / audio selection would be better if it was in the center of the screen at least for TV screens)

btw while on subject of the mezzmo video player can you make it so the Arrow keys (or direction pad on most remote controls) will fast forward / rewind xx seconds, up /down arrow should be volume.

It may be possible to send additional subtitles from the Mezzmo app to MX Player, we will investigate adding support for this. The Mezzmo app's video player only supports showing one subtitle at a time, I'm not sure if MX Player supports showing multiple subtitles.

We will look at moving the subtitle and audio menus into the center of the screen.

Up and down on the remote should control the volume, when the seek bar is selected left and right allow fast forward / rewind.

Mx Player you can select/enable multiple subtitles at once, its one of the few players I found that allow /support it (tested with MKV file that had a few subs), anyways that would be great if you can enable sending more then one subtitle to players, Mezzmo + MX Player should be fine :).

for the fast forward / rewind is it possible to support it without showing the seek bar first?, because some movies while watching with the family need a quick action fast forward to skip some scenes, and fiddling with the remote to bring up the seek bar can take awhile :)

Yes we will try to add support for skipping forward and back using the left and right buttons without showing the seekbar.
