    Default Mezzmo, Philips 46PFL7606D and ... no subtitles at all!

    Hello,

    Im trying to choose a DLNA Server to my home and serve entertainment to all my DLNA devices that I have. I manage to test several ones like Serviio, iSedora, Wild Media Server, Twonky, Tversity and Mezzmo.

    During my evaluation, some aspects were compared: Quality of transcoding, ability to stream subtitles (.SRT), look and feel of the interface manager and running mode (I prefer to run the DLNA Server as a Windows Service).

    I finally choose two servers: Mezzmo and WMS, but I have to say that even though Mezzmo is superior on almost of all items evaluates I cant make it to provide subtitles for my Philips 46PFL7606D as I did with WMS.

    Provide subtitles is a major feature that Im looking for in a DLNA Server. WMS implement this transcoding on-the-fly the video and the subtitle then DLNA renderes can consume that streaming even when they do not support external subtitles.

    Is there a way to change this behavior on Mezzmo? I mean, the capability to enforce transcoding (adding a subtitle) even if the device profile says that some conteiners doesnt need to transcoding.

    The current version of Mezzmo does not yet 'burn-in' subtitles into the video so you can see subtitles on DLNA devices that do not support display streaming external subtitles or displaying embedded subtitle channels form video files.

    We know this is a must-have feature and we are developing this feature right now. It will be included in the next major version of Mezzmo (v3.0), which will be released later this year and will be a free upgrade for all registered users.

    Since your TV does not support streaming SRT subtitles, then one workaround for the moment (if you can wait for Mezzmo v3.0) is to burn them in manually - see http://forum.conceiva.com/showthread...ith-Philips-Tv for another Philips TV owner's comments. Or you can choose WMS
