Subtitles are garbled when using SmartShare

Question

Subtitles look fine when I watch these video files on my computer. When I watch them on the TV, the text is all garbled with weird Arabic characters and other meaningless random symbols. I have the language set to English and I have tried all the different Roman fonts. What is going on and how do I fix this? I specifically got this TV so I could watch video files off my hard drive, but how can I watch samurai movies if I can't understand what the samurai are saying?!

The native player is a bit primitive.

The best way is to set up a simple server on your computer and a player on your TV. There are a few examples buy I use Plex. The LG App works great and setting up the server is not to difficult. Subtitles are much better supported.

 

Good luck.
