Subtitles on 43UK6200PLA

Question

Hello.

I have a problem and whatever I do, the TV can't show subtitles unless they are embedded in the movie.

I have movies on my PC, connected to the same network as the TV.

The movies folder is shared and also I enabled streaming, so I can watch the movies from any device.

I go to Photos & Videos (or I choose the PC stream directly from inputs menu), I go to the movie folder.

When embedded subtitles everything is OK, but if subtitles are on .sub or .srt file the TV seem to ignore them.

I open the TV options go to Accessibility turned the subtitles on, restarted the TV and PC, start the movie again and NOTHING the subtitle option is grayed!

I even tried different character encoding for example ANSI or UTF-8 and NOTHING again!!!

 

The subtitles are on the same folder, with exactly the same name - example:

Name of movie file "Tom Clancys The Division Agent Origins.mkv"

Name of subtitle file "Tom Clancys The Division Agent Origins.srt" (even if I change it to .sub)

 

Please LG dev team, FIX THIS crap, or I (and many others that want damned subtitles) will never buy your TVs again...

PS: I  have tried dozen of ways to watch the movie, but no success with subtitles.

The only way to have subtitles is to embed them with program or to use HDMI cable and play the movie from the PC.

 

THIS IS RIDICULOUS, IT'S 2019 FFS :@ I AM SO PISSED!!!

You should try some other DLNA server. For example, Plex, Serviio... I am using Plex server on my NAS, and XPlay application on TV. With this combination I can use subtitles in different languages if I name files as follows:
Movie.mp4
Movie.en.srt
Movie.de.srt

Strange, I have played movies from a USB stick in the TV with subtitles without problems. Also from an attached harddisk.

Maybe it works differently when using a shared disc.

The LG dev team is not on this forum. This is a user to user forum (like it says on the top of the page).

      I have lg tv model 49UJ6525, last weekend the tv updated to version 05.80.35, but now I realized that I can no longer use the 5 GHz WIFI network, the network is disconnecting and connecting all the time. I did a test with the 2.4 Ghz network and it works normal, but I would like to use the 5GHz network.
      Is it possible to solve this problem?

      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.

      Hi everyone!
      I have an  LG - 43" Class LED HD Smart webOS TV (Model 43UM6910PUA). 
      I keep all my videos stored on an external hard drive. When I connect this drive, a SEAGATE Expansion Portable 2TB External Hard Drive HDD (Model STEA2000400), to the USB port (back, side) and go to thumbnail view all I see are generic folders with the titles I have given to them. I do not see any of the  "folder.jpg" poster/cover art images which I have in included in every folder together with the video(s) themselves. Why are these folder.jpg images not showing up in thumbnail view? I have no problem on other (older) televisions I have (none of which are LG however). Am I doing something wrong? I have contacted LG support both via email and online chat but have unfortunately not been able to get an answer from them.
      I have included an image of the what I mean by generic folders in thumbnail view (see below). Thank you!

      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.
