    Hi,

    Which device are you streaming to? Some devices support subtitles embedded in MKVs, some don't. If the device supports them, then you should be able to select them using the device's remote control. If not, then the next major update for Mezzmo will allow burning subtitles in, so that they'll be shown when you play the file.

    I could be wrong, but I don't think that the Samsung TVs support embedded subtitles (in MKV or other files). They support external SRT/SUB files though.

    That file doesn't play at all or it just doesn't show subtitles? Are you using the "Samsung B" or "Samsung C" device profile for it (it'll be in the Media Devices dialog)?

    I can play most of the MKV files only certain file such as the one above i cant. For those playable, all of them doesn't show subtitles. As for profiles i had no idea, need to check it when i reach home :P. Is it possible to select audio if there's two different audio embedded in the MKV ?

    At the moment you cannot choose which audio will be streamed via Mezzmo. Some devices allow you to choose an audio stream when the video is playing. This should be available in Mezzmo with the next major update (along with subtitles).

    I'll wait for you to tell me which device profile you're using and we'll proceed from there.

    Can you please turn on logging (see this thread: http://forum.conceiva.com/showthread...nostic-logging), then try to play that file using the "Samsung C" device profile and once it fails, stop the server and send the log to support (at) conceiva (dot) com for investigation. Also, it'd be great if we could have a copy of that file, if that's possible (either through www.megaupload.com or a similar site or if you can give us an original download link via the support e-mail).

    Hi,

    this thread is 1 year old, and I wish to know if now it is possible to play mkv with subtitle embedded.
    I use a samsung TV ue40d5720 serie 5 and the mezzmo profile 'samsung D'.
    The video play but the subtitle is not display. Just for information, on this kind of TV, MKV with more than one audio stream work fine, I can change the audio.
    I encounter the subtitle problem on this kind of video :

    Hi,

    If the TV doesn't support embedded subtitles, then nothing has changed yet - the burn-in subtitles feature will be released with the next major Mezzmo update. If you press the Tools button - do you get a subtitles option in that menu (while you are playing the video)? If you don't then most likely your TV doesn't support embedded subtitles. If you get an .SRT, it should work though.
