Choose Audio Track Before Playback

paullittlefieldpaullittlefield Posts: 48Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

With my old Samsung TV and the previous version of the Plex TV app (http://plexforsamsung.pbworks.com/w/page/40757181/Home) I could select the Audio Track and Subtitles Track before I started playback.

     Movies > Avatar > Choose DTS 5.1 + Forced Subtitles > Play

How can I do this on the new Plex TV app for a 2016 Samsung television, which is very similar to the Plex Media Player?

My slightly frustrating path now goes...

    Movies > Avatar > Play > Pause > Settings (sigh) > Streams (another sigh) > Audio > DTS > Subtitles > Forced > Close (yet another sigh) > Play

You can see what I mean!?

Thanks.

    I've noticed that the Plex for Roku app has the exact button we need!

    On the details screen of a movie or TV show episode, just below the Play button, there is a settings button. Press this and you can choose the Audio and Subtitles BEFORE you play it.

    That's what the Samsung TV app needs.

    I don't know the Samsung app but don't you have a button in your remote to change the audio and the subtitle tracks?

    On my Samsung remote control I do have a AD/SUBT button which will change the 'Audio Description / Subtitles' option in the Live TV stream only.

    For the Plex for Samsung app, this button does not have any effect.

    You have to start the video first, then press ENTER and use the pop-up on-screen controls to go to Settings.

    It's very frustrating.

    Can the Plex app for Samsung Smart TV 2016 please take this suggestion on board?

    Come on Plex, let's have some consistency here, so that all devices have the same app... e.g. Smart TV, Apple TV, Roku have the same looking app with the same features. I really like the fact that you can choose the audio or subtitles track BEFORE you press play on the ROKU app, so why not have that on the Samsung TVs? Please.
