Thread: Where to put external SRT subtitle files?

  1. #11
    I am using an LG TV, model LE5400 series.

    Yes, it's possible that it doesn't support SRTs for some file types. I have a similar TV and can test - which file types exhibit this behavior?

    I can't get external subtitles to work on this set when viewing 480p/H264/Matroska video. In such a case, the TV won't even request the SRT file from KooRaRoo. It seems like an issue with the TV firmware. I don't know how to test it any further.

    Otherwise, the patch seems to have solved my issues. I am running KooRaRoo on XP SP2, btw. I tested with different types of file containers, codecs, resolutions, and bitrates, and also placed file on different drive letters.

    Thanks for the file info - I'll test MKV here with external subtitles on an LG TV and see what happens. I know some other devices only request external subtitles for certain file types, so perhaps it's a similar case here.

    This will be solved when burned-in subtitles are fully finished and released, albeit it's not as nice of course, because the file needs to be transcoded.

    The really strange thing is, the TV firmware won't request external subtitles for 480p MKVs, but it will for 720p MKVs !!?

    Perhaps the video codecs are different inside. Can you please right-click on both of those files and post the output of the "File Information" command?

    Looks like both of those should be sent through natively (unless the profile levels are out of bounds - these are shown on the first line in the File Information output and I need to see them as well, thanks).

    I'll try find some similar files here and test. Alternatively, if you could send me a copy of your files, that would help with testing as well (through Dropbox or any other site).

    I have transcoding turned off so both are sent through natively. I've updated the File Information in my previous post.

    What I'm planning to do is transcode a 480p file with KRR, then rename the transcoded file to .mpg, add that file to KRR, and see if the TV will show external subtitles with that.

    For any other LG LE5400 users out there using KRR, this is pretty much what I do with MKV files that have ssa subtitles embedded. The LG LE5400 series won't display ssa subtitles and/or won't display embedded subtitles. Not only that, but if I transcode and preserve (copy) embedded ssa subtitles, the TV crashes and reboots. So I manually transcode the MKV omitting subtitles, rename the transcoded file's extension to .mpg, extract the ssa stream to a .ssa file using mkvextract, convert the .ssa file to .srt using SubtitleEdit, re-adjust subtitle timings using SubtitleEdit, place the .srt in the same folder as the .mpg, and add the .mpg to KRR.
