View Full Version : Support subtitles when streaming DVD
I want to know if there is any way of getting the subtitling to work when streaming DVD from the network. I tried every piece of software I could find (EZlinkNG, Kiss Link, FreeKiSS etc) but they cannot get it to work.
I tried ripping the subs with vobsub and placing them in the same dir, but that doesn't work. I also tried to point the subs to the Vob with the software I mentioned above, but it didn't work also.
Is there any way of getting this done? Is there a trick? Or is it just not supported? If so, then I must go back to burning DVD's again, because my wife needs subtitles when watching a movie. Thanks for any replies!
Not supported, was requested starting from 5 years ago for all KiSS networked players but KiSS never listens, so no subs, no secondary audio stream ...
Instead of burning DVDs you can rip them and make AVIs or MP4s or .DIVX with external or internal subtitles (.srt for AVIs , internal or other 2) and this will stream.
It's not JUST KiSS that does not support VOB streaming with subtitles. NO
ONE DOES!!! It's not possible over network to PARSE IFO files that contain
header, Angle, Sound and Subtitle information. MPC members have created
a tool that can send ISO files (DVD Backups) to networked players (tested
on Snazio only as far as i know) including subtitles. Maybe that's something
someone can look at and make updates to use with kISS players (if not
So basically, We can blame some stuff on KiSS, this is however nothing to
blame KiSS over. It's a general lack of possibility on ALL players!!
Is this technically so very difficult to do? It seems so very simple. 8O
Hi-Jack , please do not mess "no one does" with "not possible" , it's possible and actually quet not so hard to do.
The "problem" is that no company so far that use Sigma chips (the chips used in every networked player) never tried to use/write it's own DVD player and uses Sigma's one (that btw very buggy).
The moment you write your own DVD player software - it's almost the same to implement the network streaming, same IFO parsing, nothing more.
So far the only company that promised to do this is Zensonic with their Z500 player but they still did not done so - still busy fighting with bugs.
ISO will be supported after 1.4 release. So stay tuned.
(Thank's Hi-Jack for asking )
While from another thread:
Currently slated for April 10th for 1.4 release but this is only a rough date and if all goes well with testing.
Currently Z500 is seems to be still a bit buggy (while less then DP-600) and not yet sold in Europe and we will have to see if developers keep their promise but there is a hope.
