LG WebOS. Are DLNA external subtitles supported?

Question

Hi guys,

I wanted to know if native WebOS media player on LG tvs, support streaming of movies with EXTERNAL subtitles present in folder where the movie is - via DLNA

I purchased Sony XG95 recently, but it seems that native player does not support DLNA external subtitles - only embedded ones. This is joke as even my old samsung from 2015 could deal with it.

Is anyone perhaps streaming movies via NAS using DLNA server (like Universal media Server, TwonkyServer, Servioo) and can confirm whether external subtitles are supported or not?

I'm considering switching to LG C9 oled if it has support for these DLNA subtitles.

DNLA subtitles are supported but not in all languages (as you can find on this forum).

The Media player is a bit simple. It works with Serviio (I have used it) but there are nicer solutions. 

I myself use Plex but there are more apps that do the same.  For Plex there is a native app on the TV and that works great.

      Hi, LG OLED CX 48 installed in France.   As soon as I use « Original language » for the audio the  subtitles are switched on automaticaly.  How do I avoid the subtitles I did not ask for ? Have been fighting with this for a while.
      Thanks

      Hi there,
       
      So VLC (via DLNA) does not see LG TV webOS as renderer option.
      Even Windows 7 (via Explorer / Windows Media Player) sees it.
       
      What's special about LG TV webOS DLNA implementation that VLC does not see it?
       
      Thanks,
       
      PS: Some other related posts on this.

      Hello friends,
      I have setup a home network in Windows 10, I think it uses DLNA. I can play all the files from the computer or the USB stick in the router with no issue but the external subtitles (correctly named) are not working in my 65C9, only internal ones. 
      If I access the same files in the network from a computer, there is no problem and subtitles are shown, it's only the TV not displaying them.
      Can someone help in how to make external subs work when played from a local network or what to check?
       
      Thanks

      Hi,
      Since last update it is possible to choose subtitles (SRT) when tv is playing movies from NAS.
      However the subtitles are not displayed always when chosen, some times they are displayed, sometimes not.
      It seems the software is unstabile on this point or my  Oled65CX6LA has a defect.
      My other TV Oled55B6V shows subtitles always.
      Any one the same problem?
