Popcorn Time DLNA with no subtitles

Question

Hi guys,

 

I really need some help.

I have a LG smart TV with WebOS 3.0 updated.

 

I am trying stream a Popcorn Time video from my smartphone Android.

When I cast video direct to WebOs (using DLNA from Popcort and webos smartshare ) the subtitles are not shown. Neither the subtitles button on WebOs player turns enabled. The video play very well.

When I do exactly the same thing, but cast to ChromeCast, so the subtitles are loaded perfectly.

 

Sny idea?

It could be a problem of de DNLA server you are using.

I have used the Plex DNLA server, but couldn't get the subtitles working.

After this I used Serviio and then it worked.

Now I am using the Plex App on the LG TV and a Plex server, for me that is the best solution. Subtitles working and a very nice interface.

You can check PlayOnTV app. It's on SamyGo forums (see latest post from 2017 with updated version). It now supports LG TVs and can play files with subtitles (.srt). Subtitles file has to have the same name with .srt extension.

I have had the same problem with my LG and SAMSUNG TV when connected over advanced wireless router (WiFi or wired), but when DLNA source and TV were connected via simple 4 port switch (wired) subtitles were working fluently (ASUS RT-AC66U). :(

      Hello,
      I have LG 43UJ620V and I've been trying to play video in mkv format streamed via DLNA, subtitle file is in .srt format in the same folder as the video and with same name.
      But the TV doesn't show subtitle. However, to play the same video from a USB, TV perfectly reproduces the video with subtitles.
      I'm running Rygel from Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
      I wonder if there is still no support in WebOS for external subtitles via DLNA.
      Update:
      Nevermind. Got it. Support for external subtitle was added  in most recent code of Rygel.

      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

      I have 2 LG TV's both running different versions of WebOS 3.x (UJ6300 and UH6550). The 6550 picks up my DLNA NAS, but the 6300 does not AFTER I unplugged and moved my NAS. Everything else works fine - can see the storage on my computer on the other TV (and play content), but not on the 6300. This used to work fine, but after cleaning up my server room, this one TV is uncooperative. 
      Any ideas?

      Hi all,
      I have a question in using SmartShare on LG WebOS 2.0 (my LG TV is 43UF770T, a 2015 model).
      Recently I often use the TV to view pictures from files located in my NAS through DLNA capabilities in SmartShare app. I found out that when I view pictures with resolution smaller than 4K, then the pictures are shown in the center of the TV screen and cannot be shown full screen (automatic best-fit). This is quite annoying because when viewing older photos taken from old phones with 1920 x 1080 resolution for example, then the picture will look small because it is not shown full screen.
      For comparison, when viewing video files, the TV automatically resizes the images until best-fit full screen, i.e. video with smaller resolution than 4K still shown full screen. This is exactly what I want.
      Does anyone here know how to get full screen image shown for smaller pictures (auto resize upscale to best fit full screen), just as with video files in SmartShare?
       
      Many thanks in advance.
