Hey SubJunk, do you think UMS will ever be able to play .srt files on a USB stick into a PS4 WITHOUT Sony making any changes? Or do we have to wait for Sony to Update the PS4?

Here's a full TRACE log for this version when trying to play my transcode1.mkv file via manual transcode with FFmpeg (after 20 seconds, PS4 said it could not play the file).

.srt works on Media Player when loaded from USB Stick when you turn on CC in General Settings of the PS4. its just not working over DLNA right now. dont see the difference :/

Seriously? CC is ON for the PS4, first thing I found when looking for the solution after initial try. I could NOT get "Woman In Gold" to play with the .srt file on the the PS4, 1/4 in German. The SAME stick played flawlessly with subtitles, on my PS3. WTF? :idea:

On USB = works for PS3
Woman.in.Gold.2015.720p.BluRay.x264.YIFY.mp4
Woman.in.Gold.2015.720p.BluRay.x264.YIFY.srt

On USB NOT working for PS4

Thanks for the logs guys, unfortunately this means that my idea on how to fix transcoding to PS4 was incorrect, so I will have to have another idea (or someone else will). I'll have a think and try again :)

see, i just cant see any pattern on here.
First i tried a file on PS4 over DLNA using serviio without CC turned on. Video Worked but, no sub for sure.
Then turned on CC in general settings, since then its not loading anymore file with an sub inside the folder. If i remove the sub from the Folder, the mkv works like a charm. I thought it might be an error with Serviio, same results with UMS.
Next i just tried to copy the files to any USB and it worked straight away. I read on the Sony Blog that lots of people got it work over DLNA with a sub, so wheres the deal? Its still so buggy and unstable, guess Sony just put that out to have something in return for MS downgrade.
