mkv with subtitles on UE55C6005

by snotsnot / March 1, 2011 4:55 AM PST

I trying to play a mkv file which contains several subtitles on media play however clicking the subt. button on my remote simply prints "Not Available". Is this feature not supported?

My tv is a samsung UE55C6005 and my media is served by mediatomb running on debian.

Try leaving the subtitles in the usual external text file. I didn't check to see what DLNA servers do with that but it's not a feature I found support in most players.

Well I didnt create the mkv so it's not a simple matter of not including it.

Ask the person who created it for you to fix it or learn more about transcoding, extracting contents, etc.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
