No Subtitle on Synology NAS

Postby tmenguy » Mon Nov 08, 2010 7:28 pm

I have a video and an associated .srt file, stored on my Synology NAS: in the air player browser I see both files (2 entries with the same name) but both are seen as video files (as shown by the air player browser), with same name and no extension.
-if I click on the srt (I assume it is the srt because the 2 entries are identical) => crash
-on the video files it plays without the subs

It seems ap sees the srt as video, not as text file, perhaps synology is using a wrong mime type?
Do you want me to test something to help your debug?

Thanks for your information.

Can you help to convert the srt file to UTF-8 and try it again. or you can choose your srt's encoding method in the settings page.

click srt file cause the app crash will be fixed in the next version.

my srt is an english ones, with ascii chars only....no subtitles, tried with latin and dos encoding from the airplayer settings subtitle menu...no subtitles
tried to save the sry file in unix/utf8 still no subtitles...
Would you want me to send you the video (175mo) and it's srt file? only the srt?

Hi,

Just sent the srt file.
Wht seems strange to me is that the srt file is seen as a video by airplayer...

Tell me if you need my iPad UDID if you want me to test a beta version

We have tested with FreeMi media server, and it works fine using your srt file.
however we have fixed a relation bug, and submitted a patch, please wait for update, and help to check it again.

For Synology you need to use the NFS server for .srt subtitles.
At least that is the only way it works with my Popcorn.
Neither the Synology native Video support nor TwonkyMedia is able to stream .srt files.
I have not yet figured out how I can access the Synology NFS server from my iPad or iPhone4.

strange because the srt file seems to be indexed by the synology upnp server, as it is seen by air player...
