Re: .srt character encoding troubles

Could you post a URL for one of the non-working subtitles downloads. If you can't post it publicly, please send me a PM.

Re: .srt character encoding troubles

If you only open them in Notepad++ and change the encoding, Notepad++ will (in some cases) save the file. If you didn't do this, then I have no other explanation than that these files are bad at the download location. Are you able to get the files to show the correct Russian characters in any text e...

Re: .srt character encoding troubles

When reading your log, the 803 file is detected as UTF-8 (because of the UTF-8 BOM but probably would be anyway): TRACE 2019-05-24 15:26:21.273 [HTTPv2 Request Worker 6] Returning subtitles with priority External, type: SUBRIP, subtitles track title from metadata: _rus, lang: und, externalFile: Z:\V...

Re: .srt character encoding troubles

All the SRT files have a UTF-8 BOM, even though none seems to be UTF-8. Have you "converted" these in Notepad++ or similar? If so, do you have the original files, as you downloaded them? The only one I've been able to find the actual charset of is the "working" one, which is actually encoded as Wind...

Re: .srt character encoding troubles

Thanks. Regarding the language, I noticed that the attached files are named "_rus". That won't be picked up by UMS, you must use a dot so that they end with ".rus.srt".

I'll continue to look into the encoding problems.

Re: .srt character encoding troubles

Something isn't right - if they are all UTF-8 with BOM but only some show Cyrillic characters, they aren't REALLY UTF-8. It is possible to add a UTF-8 BOM (the BOM is just some "magic bytes" in the very start of the file) even if the encoding is really something else. However, most software will tru...

Re: .srt character encoding troubles

If the naming doesn't work, there must be some bug. When it comes to usable, did you convert them into UTF-8? That can be done using for example Notepad++

Re: .srt character encoding troubles

It all depends on the character encoding used in the .srt (text) files. UMS will try to auto-detect the encoding, but this auto-detection is quite unreliable. The reason is that there's no way to know what character encoding is valid without interpreting the resulting text as being valid or not. To ...

Re: Location of cache files (Linux)

It will be created in the home folder of the user UMS is running as. That means, if you run it as root, look for it in the "/root" folder, otherwise look in the "/home/<username>" folder. It's also explicitly listed in the log during startup. Look for "profile folder".
