Render multiple subtitles at once

As an international app, it even adds support for Ali Cloud to show that it’s doing a good job of localizing in China. But it neglects to support bilingual users on the second subtitle.

It’s been a couple years since this post, but this feature is still only on Waitlist.

And I hardly use any of the features added in recent years.

Infuse’s approach of relying purely on the forum community to prioritize is not really reliable or representative of the vast majority of users’ experience. Many non-native English speakers probably don’t want to sign up for an account specifically to give feedback.

Could @NC_Bullseye @james please take a look at the usage rates of the recently added features?

As a player, it would be nice to see more optimization of the playback experience (e.g. fast-forwarding is a pain). Thanks.

This is an important feature for me and I’m looking forward to it soon

can’t agree more

I also would greatly appreciate this feature for the purpose of language learning.

However in the meantime, I’m surprised to discover that Infuse has decent support for the .ass subtitle format. E.g., it is actually possible for a single .ass file to display different titles simultaneously, with different top/bottom positioning and even different colors!

This tool produced results that looked good in Infuse: 2srt2ass

However I would love support for multiple subtitle files built in. It would save a lot of work. My argument to FireCore, if they are reading- features that promote language learning are noble! :slight_smile: :books:

Wow thanks a lot for this alternative @kaspar, even if it requires some manual and tedious action upfront. At least it’s a way to go until this get finally support.

The primary use for this is allowing us to show signs / text SSA files alongside an SRT (pure dialogue). players like VLC support this for just that reason

there appears to be no workaround except for burning in one set of subtitles on encode from disc but that forces a single language for everyone and that’s not the end goal of the accessibility we’re trying to achieve

This would be really great! Both me and my parents are bilingual but for different languages, French and English so it would be great to enjoy movies together…

this is a beautiful reason and i hope we get the feature even more now
