Audio language and external subtitles on WebOS


Question

Hi all!

 

 

I have a LG 42LB630V, with the latest firmware installed.

 

I want to know if it is possible to change the audio language, for a mkv file that has more than an audio language and how to add external subtitles. Those embeded in mkv files are running ok.

 

Thank you, 

Cipria

@beredim: I'm using the latest version of Plex media server with DLNA on a ZyXEL NSA 310. I had no issue before with a XBMC installed on Raspberry Pi.

Reading this ,

it would seem Plex is not able to stream external subs over DLNA.

 

Try installing serviio on your pc and serving some files wth external subtitles from your pc. If you get subtitle playback with this setup it will confirm it's a problem with the plex server and not the tv.

works perfectly with internal and external subtitles (*.srt and *.ass)  and different audio language at LB670V WebOS.

 

Please explain how do you get to the option to change audio language of a movie streemed from HDD

I gave up! I've tried two more DLNA servers : twonky and rygel. The result is the same : no external subtitle enabled. On my Nexus 4 I can render mkv files with subs with no issue, using twonky, plex and rygel. Maybe this TV model can't handle external subs using DLNA.

Discussion on webOS nation:

What I have discovered so far:

The first time I've configured DLNA over LG smart share (native TV LG software) I didn't really know what I was doing.

Well, Windows has it's own DLNA media server, which is a derivative of "windows media player", called "windows media server" I guess... I don't know how, but I've shared/configured my media over the windows media server. (So, in my computer, windows media server was configured. The TV uses "SmartShare" natively, of course).

I was never able to activate the subtitles, so I searched for alternatives...


imagine showing the subs icon dimmend, with no options:

1. LG provides it's owns DLNA software for PC called "SmartShare", same native name of the DLNA software used in the TV.
"SmartShare" for PC is the most friendly interface of all, but doesn't stream the subs as well...

2. There are a second alternative named "Media link" (name shown only in the site), which is actually the "plex media server". (Rebranded)

I wasn't able to properly set the "plex media server", found it too difficult...does it stream the subs?


on the left the "DNLA certified" is the "smartshare". in the middle, the "Media Link" is the "Plex"

And so far, I have tried others DLNA servers

link hidden, please login to view

some of the PC media servers installed, including "smartshare"

3. "universal media server":
didn't work

4. "Nero media home 4 essentials":
Supposed to be able of playing simultaneously the video and the subs... Information given by the own LG in a support guide... Didn't work

5. "Serviio":
Has all the options, including hardsubs (burned-in subs). Both didn't work.


Best achievement so far:

6. "PS3 media server":
It shows the subs (burned-in method), but the sound was off and the imagine was periodically frozen, probably because of the hardware highly demands on "printing" the sentences in the frames...


I'll keep trying. if anyone has the same problem, please, tell here... so I'll know I'm not the only one frown.gif

Gabriel, my setup is a 42LB630V TV set and a NSA310 NAS which runs Plex server and Twonky media server. If I browse for video (movies) from Smart Share app (from TV) the subtitles are not loaded. Instead I'm using Bubble UNPN on my smartphone: I'm browsing for files and send the video playback to LG TV. On this manner the subtitles are loaded. As an observation, this happens only for external subs.

      Hi, LG OLED CX 48 installed in France.   As soon as I use « Original language » for the audio the  subtitles are switched on automaticaly.  How do I avoid the subtitles I did not ask for ? Have been fighting with this for a while.

      Hello friends,
      I have setup a home network in Windows 10, I think it uses DLNA. I can play all the files from the computer or the USB stick in the router with no issue but the external subtitles (correctly named) are not working in my 65C9, only internal ones. 
      If I access the same files in the network from a computer, there is no problem and subtitles are shown, it's only the TV not displaying them.
      Can someone help in how to make external subs work when played from a local network or what to check?
       
      Thanks

      Hi,
      Since last update it is possible to choose subtitles (SRT) when tv is playing movies from NAS.
      However the subtitles are not displayed always when chosen, some times they are displayed, sometimes not.
      It seems the software is unstabile on this point or my  Oled65CX6LA has a defect.
      My other TV Oled55B6V shows subtitles always.
      Any one the same problem?
