Thread: Chromecast Subtitles

  1. #1

    Default Chromecast Subtitles

    I am confused about V4, Chromecast and subtitles. In the release announcement I find "Subtitles are displayed." under the section for Chromecast. However, I cannot find a way to display the subtitles. In fact under the Media Device properties for Google Chromecast, I find that no embedded formats and no external formats are supported.

    Is this all just a case of interpretation (have to pre-transcode to burn in subtitles)?

    Just confused.

    Thanks - Larry

    Hi Larry,

    Currently the only way to get subtitles displayed on your Chromecast is via burning them into your video. This is a restriction of the current Chromecast SDK from Google. So, Mezzmo automatically burns your subtitles when it transcodes videos to the supported video formats for Chromecast (assuming you have transcoding turned on).

    We expect Google will be adding improved subtitle support in future Chromecast SDK updates and, when they do, Mezzmo will be able to display subtitles without burning.

    Mezzmo Android: Install it on your tablet, smartphone, Android TV or Amazon Fire to browse and stream files from your Mezzmo library to all your devices. Full details at http://www.conceiva.com/products/mez...mo_android.asp
    Mezzmo for Kodi Add-on: Install it into Kodi to stream files from your Mezzmo library directly in Kodi. Full details at http://www.mezzmo.com/wiki/doku.php?...odi_user_guide

    Paul,

    Thanks for the info. I was hoping to improve on the Roku but I guess I will be patient.
