Better subtitle handling (parsing the <i>...</i> and <b>...</b> tags)

Recommended Posts

Many subtitle files use the italic and bold tags to distinguish the translation of written text, character's thoughts, movie title, loud voice, ... However webOS doesn't support parsing of these tags and it just shows them on the screen as:

<i>This text is italic.</i>
<b>This text is bold.</b>

The workaround is to Find/Replace all occurrences of <i>, </i>, <b> and </b> with 'nothing' but, of course, that removes the subtitle formatting :-/

 

I hope the <i> and <b> tag parsing wil be implemented in the future firmware releases. In the meantime at least ignoring of these tags would be fine - so everything inside '<' and '>' would be ignored (including the brackets, of course).

    • Disney Plus on LG webOS TVs

      I was reading a few articles on the launch of Disney Plus but they did not list any of the tvs such as LG webos or samsung tv. I hope disney plus comes out in lg tvs.  Its supposed to launch November 12th in the US for $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year. They also said there will be a $12.99-per-month trio bundle of Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ that is coming. I'm already doing espn for $4.99, I may do the entire bundle to get hulu also, not sure, At the minimum, I am definitely going to get Disney plus

    • Question: WebOS update and 49SM8600

      Hi All, Has anyone had a recent update of the OS on their TV to 4.7.050204 (goldilocks2-gulaga) ? The reason I ask is that the IPTV channels on my TV seem to have borked these channels as I now get "Invalid Service" floating across the screen. I'm pretty sure these channels worked before the update. I'm referring to channels such as Now 90's, Planect Knowledge, The Sports Channel Network etc. So these are NOT APPS but TV Channels showing up on the guide and still show the prog

      I’m an owner of OLED55C8PJA. It’s an OLED SMART THINQ TV. I have spent lots of money in this. Anyway, I can’t see Sinhala Subtitles whenever I’m watching movies using this TV. But it supports Sinhala language. It even has menu language and keyboard language in “Sinhala”. But Srt Subtitle files that has Sinhala language cannot see.I have tried to set to encoding to UTF-8 also. But no luck!
      hope you will know solution for me.
      Thanks

      Hello, 
      I have a problem enabling my subtitles on my LG UH65 TV.
      All my computers are connected to the same network and are in the same HomeGroup (windows 10 feature), my LG-TV is connected to the same network.
      My primary computer is working as a media server without any applications (like Plex etc..).
      I have been working on it for days and now I got to the point where I can view the videos which located on my primary computer, on the TV.
      At this point I wanted to watch the videos with subs so I did the following actions:
      1. Pressing on Photos and Movies.
      2. Choosing the videos folder, navigated to "All Videos"
      3. The video has started
      4. Pressed on the "3 points" button and saw there is a button called subtitles but it was grayed out and disabled.
      What can I do in order to make it work?
      Few things that I think you need to know:
      - the subs has the same name
      - the files (movie and subs) located at the same directory
      - for some reason, I have to put the videos (and the music and the photos) on my library on Windows Media PLayer to be able to see them on "All Videos" directory
      Thank you very much !!

      Hi,
      I own an OLED 55E6V, firmware 5.30.10
      I have some mkv with subtitles tracks in vobsub format. The internal video player doesn't recognize them (the subtitle button is grayed).
      I have some other mkv, but with subtitle in subrip form, and they works without any issue.
      I checked the mkv with vobsub subtitles, playing them with a PC and they works. so the issue is with the webOs. the mkv are streamed with a QNAP NAS.
      someone of you have the same issue? in case, there're chances to have a fix?
       
      Edit:
      the same video, streamed to a Samsung Smart TV works as expected, ad the subtitles are visible and usable.

      I have managed to get content to play online but have no subtitles when needed. Is there a way to play content via the lg web os browser and have subtitles displayed as well. Anyone come across this problem as it's a bit specific?
