Playing .Mkv subtitles through USB TV/Blu-ray Player?

This discussion thread has 3 messages.

I have a LG 46 inch TV, and a Samsung Blu-ray player. Both are USB compatible, and both can play .Mkv files.

My question is
How do you play the soft-subs on the .Mkv files on either TV or Blu-ray player?

I tried playing anime x that is an Mkv file on both the TV USB and the Blu-ray player USB. Both work perfect, the problem is that I can't turn on the subtitles.

I tried taking the subs out and converting from .ass into .srt and merging them back into the Mkv file but still no Advil (maybe I did it wrong?).But are there any solutions/tutorial help that I can get around this?


If any convert solution questions

Which is better AVI or MP4? and can you keep it lossless HD H.264 video with surround sound AAC audio so it looks really good on the big screen? which is the best program too do this? and can you still keep original font?



Keeping it .Mkv solution questions

When I try to extract the .ass subtitles and convert it to .srt subtitles, TV supports .ass subtitles but need to be a separate file, and put it into the same folder as the .mkv file with the same name subs load up on tv

e.g

USB ---> Video Folder --> Anime x ---> Episode 1 ---> "epi 1.mkv" "epi 1.ssa"

the only problem is that the subtitles font codecs show like "FFF15 babalalal" with the sub translations. How do I fix this? and what program is best to extract subtitles and convert?

Not sure about TV, but what is your Samsung Blu-ray player model? My Samsung Blu-ray player (model BD-D5700) can play almost everything including DVD, Blu-ray, AVI, MP4, DivX, DivXHD, MKV, AVCHD and SRT files. Just burned the movie file as data with the soft-subs and it should be fine.

When playing AVI/DivX, DivXHD or MP4, MKV files just press the "subtitle" button on the Blu-ray control and it should play the movie fine with subtitle. You can also manually adjust and sync the subtitle too if it's off by a little.

Programs to burn movie data files: ImgBurn or Nero Express (Nero 10).

For me, I'll go with MP4 or MKV (if your Blu-ray supported soft-subs subtitle), but to each own and preference.

There are a few out there, try them all and see which one you like better.
