    Default WDTV Live and external subtitles

    Hello,

    I'm evaluating mezzmo, it's a great media server.
    It works like a charm with my WDTV Live, but i have a little problem with subs.
    Internals subs works perfectly with MKV, but i can't see externals subs with MKV (only the internal sub works)
    Do you have a solution?

    Thanks

    Chris

    Hello Chris,

    I don't think that WD TV Live supports external subtitles. Unless the device supports them, there's nothing we can do at the moment. The next major update of Mezzmo will include an option to burn the subtitles onto the video stream, so that will help (but will require transcoding).

    Streaming via DLNA or playing from a shared physical drive? If streamed a file with external subs and WD TV showed them, then we'll investigate and get it going as well. Playing files directly from a shared folder is a bit different though.

    I have to ask, WHEN is this next major update? I've been waiting for it for over a year. Last time you mentioned it was almost 5 months ago when you said "in a few weeks".

    The last major update was December last year and we are planning to release this next major update before the end of this year, however this is a "planned" sort of date, and I don't have an "actual" release date at this point. It was previously scheduled to go out sooner, but was postponed at that time. Sorry that I can't be more clear

    OK. I just hope that once it's available it will support Hebrew and Arabic properly (I don't even know about the quality of your non-"burned" subtitle support, only PS3 here). I'm sick of the alternatives like "PMS" (suitable acronym) and sick of the ridiculous fact that there isn't a single DLNA server that can stream properly to one of the most widely spread DLNA clients in the world. Since yours does things right except for one major fault, for so long, that's just really frustrating.

    It should support Hebrew and Arabic, from the tests I saw it worked well with international characters. The external subtitles are up to the device to display, so we have no quality control over that - how the device renders them depends on the device's firmware. Our own burned-in subtitles look good though

    perhaps is it possible to remux in mkv on the fly with external subs, instead of transcoding it.
