Sk85 subtitles.. did everything.. nothing work

Question

Hi,

I just bought the LG sk85. 

When I try to play movie from my PC who is connected via hdmi to the TV, the subtitles on the LG player app works only in English. 

Everything else changing the subtitles- color or size but the subtitles language doesn't change.. only English. 

Of course the .srt is the exact name as the mkv name and the in the same folder... 

Please help.. tried everything..

Wait, you connect the PC via HDMI to the TV? Then your PC is creating the video and the subtitles, you should change it there.

If you are using a HDMI cable like this:

then you have to select the correct HDMI input on your LG TV.

Now you will see your computerscreen on the LG TV. Your computer will determine what you see on the TV.

Yes, it is one of the options. But there is another option - LG TV detect the movie /photos/music on the PC or you direct it to the folders and then you can see it on the TV. Like LG player. 

But has I said , the language settings on the sub doesn't work.. it doesn't change the language.. all the rest- size and color- it does...

I suppose you are using your pc as a media server. HDMI has nothing to with it.

If you are using the tv as i said the tv is probably detecting the pc as media server over wifi or LAN. Do you have the subtitles in the other language with the same name with 1 added to the file name,as the video in the same folder.

for instance if Video name is mymovie

subtitles should be named as mymovie 1.srt and mymovie 2.srt

You should see two subtitle tracks when you click on the sub button.Select anyone.

I can recommend Plex. There is a native LG app for the plex player and there are plex servers for all kind of systems.

      I recently updated the firmware on my  LG43UH610V.  Now I constantly get "Wired Lan cable disconnected" / "Wired network is connected" messages even while watching a video file from my NAS. The TV is connected and using the network while getting these messages. It has always been on a fixed IP address on the LAN.

      After updating my TV (OLED65GXPUA) on August 31, 2020 the HDMI-ARC volume support changed: pressing the volume up/down button once on the magic remote will continuously apply volume changes until the volume has reached the maximum or minimum value.  Prior to this update volume changes over the HDMI-ARC interface behaved as expected: one press of the remote button would apply one increment or decrement to the volume.  A Klipsch Bar 48 is attached to the TV over the HDMI-ARC interface.
      After the update the TV is running:  webOS TV version 5.1.1-3701, Software version 03.10.41.  I do not have the version information prior to the update.

      I am a LG 55UM7300 user, usually using Airplay.
      I can watch Youtube's CC subtitles but Auto-generated one. 
      Got disappointed.  The great majority of  Youtubes are on  Auto-generated one, not CC.
       I really want to watch Youtube with Auto-generated subtitles.
      I found out that Chromecast can display it, so Why not via Airplay? 
       
      ps.  Even CC subtitles are displayed at weird position when via Airplay, not in the middle but left side.
