srt subtitles stopped working a while back

Post by DJWolverine » Mon Dec 03, 2018 11:53 pm

I seldom play movies that need subs but occasionally there will be some foreign (to me) dialogue and I used to just grab an srt file or the movie/TV Show would provide
an srt file. I'm now using UMS 7.6.2 and I got a film a week or so ago,that came with an srt subtitle. For reasons I don't understand UMS will not see the srt file. It is
the exact same name as the film and I've gone to subtitle sites and grabbed a few others...none worked. in the Transcoding Settings for MENcoder Video there used to
be an adjustment to autoload srt subs. I can no longer find such a button? is it no longer supported or just deemed unnecessary??
Seems I may need to find an older version of UMS or if possible a hard coded copy of Alpha.
Thanks for any input.

Hi guys, it would be useful to know what was the last version of UMS that had working subtitles for you, and please provide logs as per the Problem Reporting Guidelines
