Subtitles broken in mkv videos

Post by Koitsu » Fri Nov 11, 2016 4:10 pm

Apparently broken at least from 3.5 to 3.5.3. They work on 3.5 Beta 3, but I didn't keep Betas 4 and 5.

XBMC still knows the subtitles are embedded in the mkv videos (anime) because they're still listed when I check for them, but the subtitles just don't show up. I also checked on a version from Apr 2014, and the subtitles are fine there.

Sorry if this double-posted. The first post didn't appear to show up. I waited a minute.

If you enable debug logging for each version you tried with, play the video, extract the logs and compare? or paste to xbmclogs.com or pastebin.com and paste the links in here.

Have you seen these posts if they're anything close to your case?

Thanks for those. It does show me that while the problem was never fixed, it's at least been known for a couple years like the music thumbnail issue, so there's no need to pile on more logs. This all seems to be dying down, but most things are still good. And the files work fine on Kodi PC or my Kindle, or even r32707 for Xbox that I never deleted, so it's not the end of the world.

You can subscrine to those threads (see bottom left corner when reading) and you can watch or comment on the ticket.
But yes, it is likely that it will not get fixed anytime soon.
