Subtitles are garbled when using SmartShare


bporter6

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.

      Guys, please advise how we can stream the FIFA World Cup on LG Smart Tv? Jio Cinema has won the exclusive rights and it would be an absolute shame if we are not able to watch the biggest sporting event in the world on our smart TV. Nullifies the entire purpose of a Smart TV. Kindly get this addressed.

      I have a couple of LG OLEDs in shared spaces, with external speakers, one via optical and the other via analog jack (confusingly named headphones). Whenever bluetooth headphones are used and then disconnected, the TV reverts to "internal" terrible audio. For non-technical people this is permanent. Do I have to train everyone to select the device from the long list or can I set a default?
