    Noone is having such issues? This is a bit strange.

    @PLEX, please advise!

    Such low level of Customer & Technical support. And @PLEX you want 150 Euros for a subscribtion, I do not believe so!!!

    Thank god that there are some enthusiasts that are willing to join effort to try to fix YOUR ISSUES.


  • Hi, same problem with mine PS4. Iim pretty sure its not related to PMS but to Playstation 4 application itselft. I`ve tried several verions of PMS starting from 1.9.0 till 1.11 and all of them have same problem when You enable subtitles.

    I've been having similar problems since the update but on FireTV. Mine seems to be only with streaming content (YouTube). Content from a service like Tubi.tv plays fine. Just today I upgraded PMS to which you can get if you're a PlexPass subscriber. It didn't help my problem. Speaking of PlexPass, I agree completely about Plex support. It's basically nonexistent. They seem to like to add a lot of features, but if you have problems, you're on your own. I'm not renewing my PlexPass this year. I'll be following this post in the meantime to see if any suggestions for help pop up.

    I'm also having this issue on PS4 and PS3 Plex client. Running Synology plex server version Extremely frustrating last night when I had guests over for movie night.

    it is too old problem. just turn off subtitles, o burn them into video you watch.

    Sorry, partizan76, but your answer is wrong in my case. I tried Settings/Video/Burn Subtitles in every possible value, and playback still fails. If it's an old problem, it's still broken.
