Question

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 !!

I have tested the same on my UH650V (FW V. 04.30.40) and subtitles are working.  Ensure that the file names of the video & subtitle files are the same, barring the file extension of course.  Many of the subtitle files from my Plex server are formatted with the language version, i.e. A Fish Called Wanda.eng.srt which will not display, removing the .eng allows it to display.

    • Question: Pop up messages on TV:wired LAN disconnected, then Network connected

      For the past few months I am getting intermittent pop up messages on my TV. 1st one says Wired LAN disconnected, then another message pops up and says Network connected.

    • Question: Lg webos media player subtitles

      Hi, i have webos 4.0 on my tv. LG media player  has lowest subtitle position "-2", but i would like them even lower (in black bars when letterbox movie is played). Is there a way or tweak to do that? I noticed that position -2 is higher in webos 4.0 compared to webos 3.5 Unfortunately kodi is not for webos, Is there other media player for webos that plays video files from usb? i cant find none.

      While using set top box, the voice are not clear and only music is heard clearly, it would be better if a manual equalizer is there rather than the already preset equalizer like cinema mode, clearvoice etcetc which doesnt serve the problem

    • Question: Player problem

      I used to cast from ace stream directly to my UJ6300 and I had no problems until a few days ago when the TV got an update for WebOS 3.7 I think. Now whenever I try to cast to the TV it just shows a black screen on the "Web App Viewer" app, I was wondering if maybe I could set a different player as default player when streaming from my phone instead of the Web App Viewer, as when I play from other sources it starts the "Photo&Video" player.  Otherwise I think I would have to downgrade the OS to the previous stable version.  Anyone else having this problem?

    • Question: EPG problem

      I' just bought a 65UK6750PLD and updated to Software_File(Version_04.10.30). When using the EPG on either freeview or Freesat, I cannot select the program I want to watch, or the channel I want to change to. Pressing the OK button on the standard IR remote, the Magic remote or the android app does nothing unless I unplug the TV and restart it.  The OK button works under all other conditions. Anyone know of a permanent fix?  Thanks for any help.

      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?

      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?
