I've read too many complaints about video playback on Smart TVs. Some files play, some TVs stop playing at the 2 hour mark and the subtitle support is hit and miss.
I know of no maker that can rival the playback we get on PCs with VLC Player or other players. Plan on getting a proper player device.
I want to buy a TV SONY KD49XG7096 with Linux OS.
The main target of the TV is to watch 4k movies and to be able to play text file subtitles. The problem is that i need to pre pay it and order it and no chance to try it and not buy it.
The doubt is if he will handle via external HDD all the MKV files available such as:
HDR, H264, H265, 10BIT, 8BIT.
Also the doubt is if it will open text file as a subtitle in a latin or cyrilic format?
Thank you all.
