Forced Subs

It would be really great if, in addition to On and Off, there was a global option for Forced Only subtitles. I don’t like having subtitles turned on all the time, so I leave it set to Off. However, many movies that have scenes in different languages use forced subs for those scenes. In those cases, I have to manually turn subtitles on for the movie. ATV Flash should respect the forced flag in MKV files.

Good suggestion. I’ll see if we can make it happen.


how does it look?


Please look into forced subs in m4v files as well. ATV iOS 5.1 onwards can do it for m4v files. Would love to see firecore media player do it as well.
