Hi All, after much playing I have found if I play the TV show through "Videos" rather than "My TV Series" then MP picks up the srt file and displays the subtitles. So at least there is a work around that lets me watch and understand. Thanks for all of your advice, it is greatly appreciated.

    That would be a bug then in the way MediaPortal plays the file that MP-TVSeries hands off to it, because they should play back identical.

    @Sebastiii or @azzuro can you think of anything that @ltfearme is doing different to not get subtitles handled the same? Is some code missing from MP-TVSeries when it calls into MediaPortal to hand over control to play the media?

    Hello @RoChess, i think mptvseries use myvideo as player, so all is available from myvideo, should be present in mptvseries playing.

    We have global video player for all plugins, MyVideo, TVSeries, mvCentral, MovPics, MyFilms ... so all is available for myvideo, should be present in mptvseries playing. :)

    Hi :) still plugin can inherit player from internal MP (like BDHanlder) that can handle subtitle on his side :)
    @mickb it could be nice to supply debug log and sample for us to reproduce it (even) with screenshot :D
    Thanks.

    @ajs, I was under the impression indeed that they all worked identical, but then why would subtitle scenario work within MyVideos, but fail in MP-TVSeries?

    So, After doing a full fresh install on my new PN62 PC the subtitles are working in MyTV Series as well as My Videos. This is the first fresh install I have done of MP for years and it seems to have doe the trick. Thanks to everyone for their comments and assistance in keeping MP the best and most supported media centre out there.

    I have for the most part resolved this issue, but I may have gone the long way around. Any file that has the subtitles inbedded but requiring subtitles to be turned on to see them I am running through Handbrake and burning the forced english subtitles into the file so the display regardless of the subtitles in the config. If the file comes with an external SRT file I am again using Handbrake and burning the the forced English subtitles in the SRT into file for the same result as above. Hope this helps people having the same issue with subtitles.

    I got around the issue by merging the mp4 and srt into a MKV, but will investigate when I get time.

    Got into Disk Management to Change Drive Letter and Path for J: but found the "Mount in the following empty NTFS folder" & "Browse" are both grayed out. Diskpart using an Admin CMD allowed me to Select Volume and Assign it to an empty NTFS folder. You've been a great help.

    Hi, must be really a while, cuz I can not remember any post from you ;) But might be also that I joined the team too late. Yes, there will be many things.
