    Display subtitles

    bradut

      How can I get SlingCatcher to display the subtitles of the movies which I play from the network or USB drives?

          Hi bradut,

           

          You can get  subtitles if the movie file has them embedded, otherwise there will be  no way to view them. Check out this link for a list of supported file  types:

              Thank you for response.

               

              I was afraid this is the case, and I think it's a shame that SlingCatcher does not read the external subtitles. It may be wonderful if this feature would be added by the next firmware update

               

              So far, when I need to see a movie with subtitles, I connect the USB stick to my DVD player; but I wished I could use the SlingCatcher instead, to take full advantage of those great network capabilities.
