Hi,

I just want to add my voice to the need for subtitles support, my situation currently is that I have years and years of movies&series recorded with MP1 that has DVB&Teletext subtitles in them, and as far as I can see there is no way to activate these in MP2, hoping this is within scope of the development of this plugin.

    DVB subtitles are supported in MP2 already (TsReader.ax / DvbSub3.ax based on MP1 included).

    For teletext I'm not sure, code is there, but I'm missing example files to check it.

    Ok, is there some spesifics needed to activate the feature or is it happening automatically, I have made a datasource for the movies and got them imported, but when I start playing a movie I find nowhere to enable or change subtitles in the OSD, the only reference to subtitles I find in settings is in the DVD section I believe.

    Can you please post MP2-Client log files? There are log entries for enumerated streams (audio, subtitles), maybe I see something wrong here.

    If MP2 detects subs, the "[...]" button for subtitle selection appears inside video OSD.

    Attached client log, I deleted all log files, then started MP2, went to movies and started a movie, watched the movie for some minutes verifying no subtitle option in OSD then stopped movie and exited MP2. I verified same file in VLC player for teletext subtitles.

    EDIT> Same results with Live TV, no option to enable the subtitles.

    I forgot that TsReader handles subtitles differently to all other splitters. I've added a log line more for enumerating subtitles. Here in my example it looks like:
    [2015-05-07 20:54:14,473] [5909 ] [Thread7 ] [DEBUG] - LiveTvPlayer: Initializing for stream 'rtsp://192.168.2.97:554/stream4.0'

    Please try the attached client plugins (based on latest Weekly build) and post log files.

    To show how it should look like, see:

    Started a TS recording from MP1 trough the movies library, no subtitles or option to enable, files is verified to contain teletext subtitles in several languages trough VLC player

    Started a DVD rip from movies library, subtitle option is available and can be enabled and I get to choose subtitle language

    Started liveTV, selected a channel with know teletext subtitles, same channel that recording in test1 comes from, no subtitles or option to enable available

    Exited MP2

    In this log extract you see the difference to my one: there are no subtitle streams enumerated by TsReader, so the GUI doesn't offer you a selection.
    Code:
    [2015-05-07 21:44:31,971] [28888  ] [Thread9  ] [DEBUG] - TsVideoPlayer: Initializing for stream '\\MEDIASERVER08\Filmer\Filmer\21\21.ts'

    [2015-05-07 21:44:32,027] [28944  ] [Thread9  ] [DEBUG] - TsVideoPlayer: Run graph

    Can you please open the file with the MediaInfo gui and post the output as text here?

    Could that be because the file contains teletext subtitles rather than DVB subtitles?

    Probably yes, this is what I tried to find out by MediaInfo output. Next question would be, if TsReader supports this correctly (as I don't know this). Maybe @Owlsroost already can tell us?
