    Default Panasonic Viera: Subtitles and AVI playback

    I am trying out Mezzmo to see if it will do everything I need and am running into these two main problems.

    1) Subtitles do not show up. The Mezzmo FAQ says that subtitles are supported on the Panasonic Viera TVs, Mezzmo recognizes my device as the "Panasonic Viera" profile. I have tried .srt, .sub, and .smi subtitle formats and none work. The originals I am trying to get to work are matroska .mkv files and have .ass subtitle files in the container file.

    2) None of my .avi files will play at all, my TV just says "cannot read file". In fact, I get the same error for ".vob" files.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Yes, SRT subtitles should work on the TV for AVI (DivX) files. They will not work for MKV files since those are transcoded to AVCHD and the TV doesn't support external subtitles for AVCHD files (at least as far as our testing went).

    If you have the subtitle file in the same folder as the video and it's called exactly the same (except for the extension), then please turn on logging (see this thread: http://forum.conceiva.com/showthread...nostic-logging) then browse to that file and start playing it. After a few seconds, stop playback, stop the server and send the logs to support (at) conceiva (dot) com and we'll investigate. If the AVIs don't play at all, then again, please just send the log trying to play one of those and we'll figure it out.

    We currently don't support .ASS subtitle files and I'm not sure whether the TV supports them - we'll need to check.

    Dennis,
    Thank you for the quick reply. I have sent a log file to the e-mail address you supplied with an attempt at playing an AVI file that fails.

    None of my AVI files have subtitle files to go along with them, just the MKV files that I have. So subtitles for AVIs may not be of much use to me.

    Also, any ideas as to why VOB files will not play? Or is it likely related to the same problem I am having with AVI files?

    Not sure about VOBs, but will check logs and get back to you via e-mail. Can you please post your exact TV model as well? Thanks!
