I installed ATV black 1.1.1 so the newest version and all my video’s play great. But the the thing that irritates me is the subtitle part. The thing is that the subtitles a disappear to fast and also sometimes it starts a little but earlier than it must me,not much, but it is noticeable. I tested it with several movies on my Mac and my Dvico Mediaplayer and the subtitles play there correct; correct length and start-time.
I have trouble with all video’s. Play only .mkv. But that is not the thing i guess. Watching a movie with subtitles is doable with the Firecore player, but you notice the subtitles are dissapear faster then is ment to be. I record tomorrow a video and then you can see the difference clearly. Situation 1: playing on my Mac. Situation 2: playing with firecore mp. Make the video splitscreen so you can see the difference very good.
Think that is better then making a sample and show it. Also i need then sync the subtitle again and it is not one particular moviefile.
Think we don’t understand each other correct. I guess you have also HD .mkv movies in your collection. And you have maybe also non-English(guess you are an American) movies where you need subtitles for. So that is than you can test .srt with your own collection and you see clearly the difference - So not,give me some titles and i will search for (dutch) .srt subtitles file. You can do it also yourself on the following site, but it is dutch; www.ondertitel.com
I used the following scene release in the video(maybe that helps): Ice.Age.A.Mammoth.Christmas.2011.720p.BluRay.x264-FRWL(1.26GB). If you want i can also send it to you(with .srt) with WeTransfer.com? But I assume you see very good the difference in my video; xbmc start and ends correct and reads better( you don’t have to read very quick. Hard for my girlfriend to follow a movie.)
Yes i hope it also.This topic is never ment to be a bitchingtopic, but to solve the problems. I’ll zip some .srt files for you. Link under this msg. But i have it with all the mkv files and .srt subtitles. I think it is not about the .srt’ then. Think the encoding(or how you call it) of subtitles is not correct.
Nice to read you try to fix it… great, and hope you can solve it. Just watch today again a movie with Firecore instead of XBMC(because in XBMC i get too much buffers) and i must admit it was again really enjoying with the subtitle behavior
Maybe you can also try to position subtitles in black bars(or little in the movie and second line in black) if you have a 2:35 movie. In XBMC they have the same position even if the movie is 1.85:1 or 2.35:1 and i like that very much.
