Re: Support Subtitles on Playstation 3

crossing fingers...
I was trying to contact ffmpeg about this, just to bug them about it, but they don't have a forum, just a mailing list (many, in fact; I didn't know which one to subscribe to in order to send my message)

I don't know if this is of any help, but some time ago I used this program (http://www.calcitapp.com/AVIAddXSubs.php) to pack subtitles in an avi file and the copy that file to PS3. it worked fine. the subtitle add process was pretty fast if I recall. maybe this principle could be used to pack subtitles in Serviio to be streamed to PS3. however, nowadays I'm playing mostly hi-rez mkv's from a Synology NAS, and the above method is obsolete...

again, crossing fingers! maybe Serviio's developers could find a way to make subtitles available to PS3. that would be a big step forward.

Re: Support Subtitles on Playstation 3

Hi,

I'm new to Serviio. Have been using ps3mediaserver for a while, but a great wish to be able to browse metadata has brought me here.
And to be honest, it looks great! :)
Alas, I notice that srt files are not being parsed, or at least not displayed on my PS3. As I have a bunch of foreign language films, this is a major downer.
I know that it is possible though, as the ps3mediaserver did this fine.

I haven't familiarized myself yet with customizing/hacking Serviio for a particular rendering device, but I'd be happy to be guinea pig. :)
Are there any pointers where to look if I'd want to start experimenting?

Cheers!
Wim

Re: Support Subtitles on Playstation 3

PS3MS does it by burningthe subtitles into the stream itself (basically transcoding the file even if it could play natively) and uses MPlayer to do that. Serviio doesn't use MPlayer so this won't be supported until FFmpeg implement something similar.

Re: Support Subtitles on Playstation 3

Wow, that was quick! :) Thanks!

Ouch, that doesn't sound very hope inspiring....

I had a quick glance at the ffmpeg git repo, and a few minutes ago, this was commited: add SubRip encoder. My naive enthousiasm is probably extremely misplaced in hoping that this might have anything to do with inserting subs in the stream? :lol:

I have no real knowledge about ffmpeg and its community, is there any hope at all that this is something we can expect?
I guess I'll keep a copy of PS3MS handy for those subtitled items, just in case ;)

cheers,
Wim

Re: Support Subtitles on Playstation 3

The commit looks promissing. Maybe someone could try building this latest FFmpeg and give it a try.

Re: Support Subtitles on Playstation 3

I could give it a try. Could you provide me the link for the FFmpeg particular version? I want to beta test this feature with PS3.

Re: Support Subtitles on Playstation 3

Is it enough to compile FFmpeg subRip encoder snapshot and place a .srt file near the video file (.mkv, .avi, .anySupported)?

What would be the needed PS3 profile modification so I could test the subtitle feature?

Re: Support Subtitles on Playstation 3

It won't work with Serviio yet. IF they support this, someone has to confirm the FFmpeg command needed for burning the subtitles into the video stream. THEN we could add the support for a future version of Serviio.

I asked the question on #ffmpeg and got:

< Tjoppen> well, it encodes srt. an encoder doesn't hardsub
< Tjoppen> but, there's also the drawtext filter which might get hooked up to the subtitle stuff in due time. I haven't looked at that too much though
< twnqx> look out for a video filter that does subtitles.

So I guess it's not for now yet? :(
Can you tell I'm a video noob? :D
