WebOS Arabic Subtitle problem


johnnylb

Question

the problem with WebOS Arabic Subtitle is that you have to change the encoding for each movie when you first play it not only that but also if the encoding is UNICODE the subtitle will not be understandable.

 

the mentioned problems didn't existed before in the older platform.

 

 

it is not accepted to have this "faux-pas" while all electronics manufacturers plan for improvements LG did a huge mistake using the WebOS.

the main purpose for buying a smart TV is to benefit from its internet access and movie playing and this is not achieved with LG WebOS TV.

 

i am not sure if this is the correct place to emphasize my problem... but i need solutions hope any LG Customer service support can contact me.

I have find a solution for the encoding of the Subtitle via surfing net, i hope it may be helpful

It worked so good on my Lg 42LB6520 that Running WEBOS

 

I found a  hidden menu in WebOS which allows you to change the encoding, Size , Color and position of the subtitles of all languages.

 
First you have to save the subtitle file as Ansi Encoding by NotePad Program on any Pc
 
Steps:
 
1) Play your movie
2) When you see Strange characters appears with your subtitles hit Pause.
3) In the Pause menu click on the little arrow on the right hand side.
4) Click on the button that says 'Sub'
5) Click on External
6) A hidden menu will Appear!!!
7) Select Code Page that suit your languge till the Subtitle characters appeared fine
8) Also you can select Size, Color, Position, Sync....etc

I have similar problem with Farsi subtitle. Since the characters are same in both Farsi and Arabic subtitles, I think the reason of the problems is same.

When I watch a movie with Farsi subtitle (SRT file) the subtitle cannot be read even by changing the charset option in WebOS.

I saved the SRT file with UNICODE or UTF-8 encoding and when I watched it my PC it is OK, but in LG WebOS, it is not OK.

 

In fact the characters can be decoded correctly in WebOS but the problem is that Farsi and Arabic languages are written from right to left but the subtitle which is shown in LG WebOS is set from left to right. So the characters and words are messed and nothing can be read!!

 

If someone has any solutions or suggestions, I would appreciate.

hello to every one

I just bought the TV yesterday and when I just played a movie and select the code on arabic like every other devices , and saw that the srt is not showing farsi language I just become mad and angry giving 2000 dollars for a TV with out showing farsi sub ...

so I just changes all the codes without any hope and suddenly something strange happened ... the srt showed farsi language in Vietnamese code! I know its very stupid and silly but I just loved it because it worked!

I couldnt belive that but it worked very well so i came here to tell all of you people who want to play Srt in arabic and farsi use the vietnamese code it worked for me so i hope it work for you too...

      webOS updated, I think to 2023, on my C2 a couple of days ago. Since then the News option on the Sky News app no longer works, instead timing out. The Weather and Climate options still work, though.
      I have deleted and reloaded the Sky News app, but the problem remains.
      Does anybody have any suggestions of what I might try to get this working again, or is this something for LG, or Sky, to fix?

      In the specifications of this LaserTV it is shown that WebOS 6.0 should be installed on this device.
      The latest Device Firmware Version is 3.01.02 and i am missing the RTL+ App (Germany) which should be available with WebOS 6.0 
      So any info when there will be a "real" WebOS 6.0 available on the Cinebeam HU915EQE?

      Hey everyone, I've been using my LG WebOS TV for some time now, and there's a small but impactful change I'd love to see. Currently, when the TV is turned on without an HDMI input, it defaults to displaying a wallpaper. It's not aesthetically pleasing, it's a bit of an inconvenience for users like me who primarily use the TV's smart features.My suggestion is to include an option that allows the TV to boot directly into the Home screen, displaying all the available apps and streaming options right away. This would streamline the user experience, making it faster and easier to access the services we use most.Would love to hear the community's thoughts on this. Cheers!
