LB731 webOS - problem with subtitle encoding and mkv files

Question

Hello,
I got few MKV files where i cant change subtitle encoding (when i change encoding nothing happens). Other settings work fine (size, color, position).

Im using Smartshare.

 

Software Version: 03.23.24

webOS TV Version: 1.2.0-2724

 

MKV files where changing subtitle encoding doesn't work:

mkv-utf-8.png

MKV files that work fine:
mkv.png

 

I did test one subtitle on both MKV files, and on one subtitle encoding works, on another MKV i cant change encoding.

Did try serviio and direct over USB HD.

 

How to fix this? I really want to play my movies and have normal subtitles.... Thanks

After removing internal subtitle "text stream: UTF-8" from MKV character encoding works. Is this a bug?

Yes, this is probably a bug of WebOS and LG do not take any action. Furthermore, there is a problem when reading UTF-8 subtitles. Appear strange symbols sometimes.

Personally, I always convert subtitles in ANSI and have no problem with their transcripts.

What do you use to convert the subtitle to ANSI ? Does this make the strange symbols disappear, while viewing a movie with subs?

I convert subtitles from UTF-8 to ANSI with "Notepad + +".

Yes, strange symbols disappear.

    • Question: files on USB device shown as ._xxx.jpg

      To have a picture  show on my new LG OLED55B87LC I've connected an external USB 3.0 hard disk (formatted with MS-DOS FAT32 on my iMac) that I've filled with hundreds of pictures from my Fotos App.  But when I open this drive on the TV the jpg pictures (numbered 1.jpg to 999.jpg) show up as ._1.jpg to ._999.jpg. When I scroll down at the end the list then the real jpg`s appear. So it looks like there's a copy of each file on this drive starting with  ._  ?? And all of them can't be shown on the TV - they look faulty ?  I've tried out with another drive / USB stick - just the same problem. Does anyone experience the same problems ? Do USB devices have to be formatted in a special way ? Any idea how to solve this ? 

      Ah - and beside this strange thing - is it normal that it last that long for the system of the TV to create all the thumbnail pictures to show on the TV ? When I scroll through a long list of pictures it lasts always a few seconds until the icons of the pictures really show the contents. This is really annoying because it makes the feature useless if I need several minutes to find a picture I'm searching for. Why is it that slow ? Is the USB connection only with 2.0 Standard ? Or is it a performance problem of WebOS ?
