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 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.

      Hello,
      It would be a great addition if OLED TVs had more options for subtitles color: like a dark gray, a very dark gray and maybe a transparency setting also. As it currently stands the subtitles ruin the watching experience a bit because they're too bright on HDR content :( The gray option nearly identical to white.
      Also support for more subtitle formats such as PGS would be great, it would remove the need to have an external device for video playback and improve the overall experience.
      Regards
      Luís

      Hi All,
       
      I recently bought a LG Smart TV with WebOS (42LB6500) and would like to connect to my external hard disk connected over network. Here is how my home network and devices are setup.
       
      I have a high speed broadband that comes to my WiFi router (D-Link DSL 2750U) with USB support for External HDD. I have connected my Seagate Ex.HDD to this router and I am able to access the drive over WiFi on my smartphone and computer using the network path \\192.168.1.1\... Once connected I am able to use it similar to any mount location, i.e., read/write files, play media, etc., I want to do similarly with my TV, I would like to use this connected Ex. HDD as any other location and would like to achieve following two things at the least without any additional hardware Play media files on this HDD (very very important) Use the HDD as recording device for timeshift/live pause feature (important)  
      Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated.
       
      Regards,
      Rukmaj
