Re: Subtitles in MKV with PS3

I also am a heavy subtitle user, although more with external subs and h264/mp4 files. On the PS3, UMS has to transcode the subtitles over, so you can't switch subtitles on the PS3 on the fly with the subtitles button. I am not a developer, but my understanding with the current UMS is that you cannot...

Re: [Transcoding folders] Limiting options

Thanks for looking into the problem and your explanation. I agree that it'd be nice if subbers identified the language in their subtitles, but unfortunately I get "Unk." internal SSA subs in anime all the time. For the external ones, It's easy enough for me to add the language to the name. I really ...

Re: [Transcoding folders] Limiting options

Ok, this is interesting. So I added .en to the subtitles in the folder that I was testing, the ones with the -BOM files. I exited the folder and re-entered. After a rescan, the subtitles are recognized with the {Ext Subs} info tag. I had played the file with subs via the Transcode folder earlier in ...

Re: [Transcoding folders] Limiting options

Thank you for the explanations. The advice on having the language name in the file name is very helpful. I didn't know that UMS would prioritize that over auto-detection. I do find the "newly added subs" issue interesting as UMS clearly recognized the new subs, having referenced them in the Transcod...

Re: [Transcoding folders] Limiting options

Thank you for your replay and explanations. One main reason I mentioned the UTF-8-BOM subs is that I think Aegisub is one of the most popular external subtitle programs, and it automatically produces UTF-8-BOM encoded subs. It's not a setting you can change so I think most subbers won't even notice....

Re: [Transcoding folders] Limiting options

For what it's worth, the "Subtitle Icon bug when thumbnails are off" that I've mentioned before is gone with this build. I haven't tried the Live Subtitles option as I usually download my own, but I haven't noticed any new bugs so far.

Re: [Transcoding folders] Limiting options

The "add a new subtitle into an opened folder" issue is still there. It rescans the folder but will not used the newly added subtitle as before. I didn't mention this last time, just restarting the server with the button doesn't help; I have to quit out and restart UMS for it to see the new subtitle...

Re: [Transcoding folders] Limiting options

I set "Full Subtitle info", and was able to determine that UMS can detect the correct language on ANSI and UTF-8 encoded subs, but not UTF-8-BOM encoded subs. And the new icons in the transcode folder are very nice indeed. Just personal preference, perhaps because I'm used to them this way, but I li...

Re: [Transcoding folders] Limiting options

Thanks for the build. I am on Windows, so I'll do some testing. Also thanks for the info on the cache. I just pulled the UMS folder our of the ProgramData folder and did a bit of a clean install. Then if I want to go back it'll be easy as I understand 7.0.0 changed some settings from Hide to Show. I...

Re: [Transcoding folders] Limiting options

My sincere apologies. In the first instance, I meant multiple audio and subtitle tracks, not video. I agree that the second instance is fairly unique and not a major problem. I am just glad that I can use the new subs without having to copy all the video files back onto the HD to view. I think you a...
