Stream subtitles to Samsung TV
#1
Hi

I'm new to Kodi and this forum - so Hi to everyone.

I downloaded Kodi last week so guess I have the latest version.  

I have downloaded a couple of Subtitle Add-ons - Opensubtitles and Subscene.  So I am able to easily add subtitles and watch a subtitled movie on my PC.

I want to use Kodi to stream movies from an external hard drive to my Samsung Smart TV.  I can stream the movies but can not seem to stream the subtitles.

My question is how can I also see the subtitles on the Smart TV?

I have trawled through the forum and can't find an answer.

Thank you in advance for any assistance.

Question 1 would be, which file protocol are you using to stream the movies? SMB, NFS, FTP...? UPnP does not support external subtitles in all cases.
As long as the subtitles have the identical name of the video, they should be picked up.

Otherwise, provide a debug log (wiki) so we can perhaps see what goes on internally.

Hi Klojum

Thank you for taking the time to respond to my post.

Sorry, I am not tech savvy in the slightest.  Please can you advise me how I ascertain the file protocol I am using to stream the movies?

I downloaded Kodi from filehippo.com.  Other than the subtitle add-ons it is in its original form.

Cheers

Sorry, I must have overlooked the mentioning of the external drive. (I hear sun strokes can do that).

I know that site from way back when. I also thought that sometimes they packaged the installer file with their own, adding sponsored crap in them.
Next time, just download the Kodi app from our own download site.

It's possible that the subtitle add-ons are unable to store the downloaded subtitle onto the external harddrive.
Kodi's debug log (wiki) should be able to see that. If you can repeat the whole process and provide us the log file, we may see why subtitles aren't visible.
