Subtitles in mkv


I can't get burin in subtile to show on any mkv container file with anime content.
I'm transcoding over computer to xbox360, but not subtiles on MediaBrowser to.

Same problem is on my lg tv over usb port player.

On computer, or on plex over xbox360 burn-in subtitles are shown.

Help please?

Re: Subtitles in mkv

Selectable captions aren't available when transcoding. You can check the box in the Serviio console to burn in subtitles, but that will force transcoding for everything, even if it's not necessary. It's a choice you have to make.

LG NANO85 4K TV, Samsung JU7100 4K TV, Sony BDP-S3500, Sharp 4K Roku TV, Insignia Roku TV, Roku Ultra, Premiere and Stick, Nvidia Shield, Yamaha RX-V583 AVR.
Primary server: Intel i5-6400, 8 gig ram, Windows 10 Pro, 22 TB hard drive space | Test server Windows 10 Pro, AMD Phenom II X4 965, 8 gig ram

HOWTO: Enable debug logging HOWTO: Identify media file contents
