Samsung TV - no subtitles are shown!
« on: January 23, 2011, 11:16:23 AM »
Hello, i tried to watch http://bakabt.me/143793-akira-1988-1080p-blu-ray-h-264-dts-thoranime.html  on my tv, but it doesn't show the subtitle!
I tried to extract the subtitle  with "MKVExtract GUI" but the extracted subtitle is not working!
Can someone help me? (extract the subtitle and upload it!)

...
What player are you using? How old is your system?

The torrent has been up for almost two years and no mention in the comments of similar problems, so likely the issue is on your side. But we need a bit more info...

Edit; this is assuming you use the tv as a monitor. If you're using special hardware for tv, well, THORA's releases aren't exactly the most compatible. Try converting the styled subs to textsubs (.srt) and try that...

Alternatively download another version and use it's subtitles with this...

Make sure the entire picture fits on the screen exactly. This may include issues like overscan or improper fullscreen mode, meaning the subtitles may get chopped off at the bottom if the image is too low or too large.

Hey guys, I have the "Samsung LE32C650" model and i'm watching it with the built in Media Player!
As it seems the Mediaplayer does not support .ASS-Subtitles (soft styled) (Highschool of the Dead and One Piece Strong World subtitles are not shown either!)
I found the .srt subtitle of Akira and its working!

edit: i tried to watch the files in different modes still not showing ...!

SRT would work.
And it's pretty easy to convert ASS/SSA subs to SRT so I guess all you have now is normal white subs.

There are other options such as hard encoding the subs into the video put I'd suggest you hook up a PC instead.

Yes, but the only problem is that everytime I try to extract the sub file out of the mvk (with mkvextract)
the ass file is broken

I sell these models of Samsung TVs at my work. I tested it with a number of files including anime with soft subtitles.


Subtitles must be external in either SRT, TTXT, SMI, or TXT format. SSA/ASS, PGS, and SUB+IDX are not supported.

You can try Aegisub.
Load the .ass with it from inside the mkv, and export it to .srt.

I already tried to open it with aegisub, but every .ass-subtitle file I extract out of a mkv is corrupt!

Try using MKVExtractGUI2. The version bundled with the MKVtoolsnix is broken at best.
