MKV does not specify video encoding. It's a container so you have to re-encode to what your player plays. In many players like this you have to hardsub the subtitles.
As to the 2nd TV, this is what most folk discover. All devices come with varying capabilities.
I have the ES6000 bluray player by Samsung which works quite well! However I have a problem!
Via the usb I can play mkv files and also the player loads any srt along with avi or mp4 or mpeg... This all works well!
However I want to play all these files also over the network also! But I always get Filetype not supportes when loading mkv files etc... Avi and mpeg does work BUT it does not load the srt files which have offcourse the same name!
So how can I fix this please?
So all works over usb with hard disk or usb stick plugged in... But it is not working working when streaming from my nas!
On my 2nd tv.. a recent 4K Samsung tv this however works all perfectly over the network! So could I maybe upgrade my bluray player so it also reads all these files please?
Or do I need to buy me a new blu ray player?
Hope someone can help me!
