Question about MKV and Samsung blu ray player

by WooYeahz / April 17, 2011 9:09 AM PDT

I'm using a BD-C5000 bluray player and I frequently stream MKV videos however what gets me is the Subtitles and language preference features do not work. Yes I did double check and there are srt subtitles in the MKV files. I tested this with about 20 MKV videos and the same happens with all of them.

I am using Samsung PC Share Manager to stream my content from computer to bluray player. I tried streaming through Serviio. Works with MKV but subtitles & language preference isn't working. Tried using PS3 media share however it will not play MKV videos in general.

The very LAST thing I want to do is waste hours or days converting EVERY MKV movie I possess. This shouldn't be necessary if the Samsung BD-C5000 was hyped as a bluray player that can play MKV and subtitles and all of that good stuff so I'm sure there's a way to get this working.

Hmm, I thought the only support was for ONE subtitle in and external file of same name.

Where in the product manual tells us this works? (sorry but this area is well discussed so just ask for the short story if you missed it.)

And why would you bother to respond if you're making zero attempts to help my solution? More sounds like somebody is having a slow day....

If there is a way to keep the subtitle inside the MKV, people would love to know.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
