Feature Request: Enable subtitles for Plex Channel

coder-alphacoder-alpha Posts: 662Members ✭✭✭

So currently the Plex framework does not allow subtitles using the Plex Channels. I guess most of the support required is already there since for library items it works well on all systems. If the support for subtitles could be extended to Plex Channels I believe it would greatly benefit a lot of users and developers.

Thanks,

    I would love to have subtitles on my plex channels. I am hard of hearing and without subtitles content is very difficult to watch. I have to watch with my wireless headphones, and that completely drowns out all the sound around me. I greatly dislike this as I can't talk to the family during a show. I'd love for subtitle support to be enabled in plex across the board. I was very surprised when I found out that it was not. Could this feature please be implemented?

    Enabling subs on Plex Channels would be would be a great benefit.
    Just think of how it would enable the hearing impaired to use and enjoy Plex

    @SiscoPlex I'm pretty sure that's not a requirement for Plex to consider a feature request. I think posting about it here and other relevant threads (but not making multiple threads !) is what will only matter.

    Plex has been promoting the DVR function heavily, but it is useless to me without closed captioning/subtitles. As others have noted, I have a hearing issue and I can't really watch TV without subtitles, so I don't bother to record any programs. I end up rarely using Plex because there isn't a whole lot I can do with it unless I can get subtitles to work. @Plex - if you are not going to get subtitles to work, stop telling me about DVR and live TV.
