Display subtitles when using PiP mode

When I watching video in PiP mode, I found the subtitle is missing and it is still not shown even infuse is switched into normal window or full-screen mode. Though I could turn off and on subtitles to workaround. It seems to be a bug in public beta 6.


This may at least be partly a bug or limitation of the macOS PiP implementation. I have an extension to let me use PiP for videos in Safari which I use for Netflix, Hulu, etc and their subs never work in PiP

The lack of subtitles in PiP is an iOS/macOS limitation. The bug in Infuse where switching back from PiP doesn’t automatically re-enable the subtitles has been present in the iOS version for as long as I can remember - I’m not surprised it’s also in the macOS version. This would be a nice fix.

The iina player can play the same video with the subtitle in PiP. But I do not know how it works.

Hi @james,

I tend to use PiP often with my iPad. And I noticed from other apps that it’s possible to have subtitles in PiP. Unless there is a setting I’m overlooking, but I was hoping it could be implemented into Infuse. If it’s possible…. Just a suggestion.

As of now, PiP subtitle isn’t avail. Any workaround or idea if the developers are working on it?

Playing a MP4 file with mov_text as subtitle in Quicktime allows subtitle in PiP mode. this is how netflix has subtitles in PiP mode on iOS and iPadOS.

Same request here, i would like that infuse has PiP function working with subtitles and also 10sec rewind and fast forward.

all other major apps like netflix etc have this functionallity on ipad os (PiP with sub and 10sec RW/FW function)

It is annoying to need to remove PiP to rewind or fast forward and also no subs for foreign content.

Besides that the app is wonderfull!

Thank you

Same here, I really rely on subtitles… I have issues with interpreting fast spoken text, so I need personally need the aid of subtitles.

But I’m sure this bothers many people. Please fix this!
Also 10 sec back & forward controls. And the progress bar has no relation to the current position (it keeps progressing till the end ~1sec and then restarting an some kind of infinite loop).

Thank you very much!
Although there’s room for progress, Infuse is the best video play that you can get on iOS/iPadOS. Any other video player on just sucks compared to infuse, especially the PoC built-in video “player” provided by Apple.
Without infuse I could never even dream of watching a video (file) on my iPad (or iPhone)

This topic is still waiting for developers’ work. Please solve the bug. I saw many apps can work well with subtitles in PiP model.
