View Full Version : srt subtitle issue (CHINESE) HTS3560/98

I have a subtitle issue for MKV, I have a lot of MKV file move together with SRT subtitle (chinese).
It is Ok to play but only for English but for Chinese will show $%^&*#@!@#irr
But if I using MKVtoolnix merge the subtitle it can play normal.
This way will take time, if any other way to play the Chinese subtitle except to merge the subtitle.

this is quite strange ... if after merge it's alright, it s not likely the prob of the srt file...
and english one can be displayed...
hmmmmm, maybe you have to upload your files (mkv together with a srt file to the team for study)

i think it's likely a chinese subtitle support prob...
but since it's /98 (Asia version) i think it should be supported... quite strange

this what I don't understand. Srt can show properly if merge in MKV, but unable to show if Srt same folder with MKV file

my MKV file more than 10gb, it is impossible to upload.

10-27-2011, 03:45 AM
it s just that mkv and that srt specifically
or it s general all your chinese mkv and srt?

10-27-2011, 05:48 AM
general all MKV...
the chinese subtitle can show normally if using MKVtoolnix merge srt in MKV, but if rename and put into same folder the subtitle will only show some strange word.
I am tired if all my movie using Mkvmerge.

do you have a smaller one to give to the team? just from my experience, if the team does not have the file and cannot reproduce so, it's not likely there's an improvement software...

I don't think is MKV file problem, but is srt file.
Or I just provide the team srt file to test?

hi again,
i think so, maybe srt is enough. :)

just one more clarification question: can you confirm that you have already chosen Simplified Chinese (CP936) in your subtitle option?

as my understand the subtitle option is only for Blu-ray play back.
I have no other option for MKV play back.

in my case (BDP5100/ 9600/ 3200) it's not.
This can be adjusted through: main menu > settings > preference > subtitle > Chinese (simplified)

to my understanding, BDP and HTS share the same platform for most of the products, etc more recent ones. Not sure if y your players have the above settings or not though...:confused:

mine 1 is setting>preference>subtitle>Chinese(simplified)
but it got show that for BD and DVD

while playing a file together with SRT: press option button and change character set.
