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.

      Hi all!
       
       
      I have a LG 42LB630V, with the latest firmware installed.
       
      I want to know if it is possible to change the audio language, for a mkv file that has more than an audio language and how to add external subtitles. Those embeded in mkv files are running ok.
       
      Thank you, 
      Cipria

      Would you please add one or two shades of gray to the subtitle colour selection in the inbuilt video player (Photos and Videos app ) ? White is blinding on the OLED screen in a dark room while watching dark scenes. Also a bit thicker shadow/outline would be nice.

      This is a brand new set, first 2 days was fine. Today after an update, I would play a youtube video and audio drops out totally after around 5 mins in. Video still plays, just no audio. Also happens when watching amazon prime. Also sometimes on amazon prime it just crashes and brings me to HDMI 4 screen (I got a nintendo switch plugged in there, but not turned on). It's frustrating to say the least, could someone please help me with this?
