Re: Subtitles

Plugins don't support subtitles yet, but will in the next version.

Will this support be implemeted as a burn-in on the transcoded video stream, or as a DLNA container property which the client can elect to activate?

Re: Subtitles

It would be both. I currently haven't hooked subs into the plugin structure yet. I looked at 2 plugins and they both (youtube, iplayer) use a format that FFmpeg cannot decode, so i left it for now. I would either have to build some functionality to convert them to SRT or leave it up to the plugin devs.

What format do subs come in your plugin?

"Both" sounds great. I take it you mean that the plugin can decide (by using a flag?) if it wants the subs burned in?
Client toggling is obviously sweeter for the user, in case the DLNA client supports it.

My plugin, SvtPlay, (or rather the source service http://www.svtplay.se) uses WSRT, e.g.:
http://media.svt.se/download/mcc/wp3/un ... 79169.wsrt

The corresponding high quality stream url is:
http://svtplay7k-f.akamaihd.net/i/world ... e1bf661c32

No, it's up to the client to enable hardsubs (burn-in) in the console. It then can encode them either always or when required by the profile (another setting). If we do burn-in, the text softsubs resource is not served.

So it'll be totally transparent to the plugin.

I've thought about it before, but created the actual ticket now - https://bitbucket.org/xnejp03/serviio/i ... btitlesorg

Even better.

Will this be in 1.2 or the following release?

Re: Subtitles

Currently out of scope for 1.2 (plugin subs), but will have a look if I have some time during the beta testing stage.

Re: Subtitles

Hi, I'm curious about what happened with this?

I don't see anything about subtitle support in the latest plugin development guide.

Regards!

Re: Subtitles



OK.

Any chance to bump the priority?
Anything I could do to help out?

Re: Subtitles

the problem is that most of the sites I was looking at were either using their own formats or something FFmpeg doesn't support, so the plugin devs would have to write some code to transform the sub files to .srt.

OK, I understand.
