Thread: Philips and Sony subtitle issues

    Question Philips and Sony subtitle issues

    Hi there,

    I have a big trouble to set up my devices to work with external SRT subtitles or any other type like SSA, SUB, TXT, etc...

    This is my case scenario:

    I downloaded today the latest Mezzmo (v3.4.2.0) trial version and installed on my Windows XP machine (Intel E6420 2.10GHz, 2x 1Gb DDR3 Kingston Hyper-X), this is my stand alone DLNA Media Server.

    I have brand new PHILIPS 40PFL3208H/12 Smart TV "detected as Pioneer BDP" and SONY BDP-S370 Blu-ray Player "properly detected" configured over local network.

    So, I have tried to load external subtitles for AVI, MP4 and MKV files, but without no luck (video played nice on both device, but no subtitles shown).

    Please explain me "easiest way" how to make it possible, because I'm struggling with this issue about 4 days now and I will smash all my devices into little pieces.

    Kind regards,
    Viktor


    p.s. All devices are updated with latest manufacturer firmwares.

    Sony BDP does not support external subtitles. You will need to burn them into the video to see them.

    Is that apply only for DLNA or also for External USB?

    Thanks!

    Try this:

    Click on Media Devices, select your Sony BDP, click edit. Click subtitles, and mark the option "Burn subtitles on video files". In Burn Subtitle for this languages, click edit and choose the language is your subtitle. Click OK, ok, restart the server and it should work.

    Not sure about USB but certainly for DLNA streaming, most current Sony AV products (TVs, Blu-ray players, PS3) do not support external subtitles or embedded subtitles, so Sony product owners rely on Mezzmo to burn the subtitles into the video. It's easy to set up & just works without having to manually do anything prior to streaming. See this FAQ to learn more about subtitling in Mezzmo - http://forum.conceiva.com/showthread...titling-Basics. If you are still having problems, let us know and we'll help further.

    After that you have to right click on the movie, click properties, click transcoding, click pre-transcode file, select your player and click in choose format, select the bold one, and select "Force burning subtiles", choose the file .srt and wait for the transcoding.
    That way works, but you MUST have a .srt file... if you try this with embedded subtitles it wont work.

    Ok, then I will drop that for Sony, it's to bad, I don't want to struggle any more!

    But what about my brand new PHILIPS 40PFL3208H/12 Smart TV "detected as Pioneer BDP"?

    Beic, I did what I wrote here, and it works fine on my PS3! For sure in your Sony will work too.

    Yes, thanks Toledo!

    It's working for subs, but I get 100% CPU usage, bad quality of movie and ages to finish transcoding!

    So, after 3 hours of 100% CPU usage and pre-transcoding I ended ffmpeg process, the log file is about 1Gb+!?
