Can you select “no subtitles” as default? (Fire TV)

NatatorNatator Posts: 4Members ✭✭

Hi all :)

Is there a way to have the default behaviour, on Fire TV Stick, so that no subtitles are selected?

The current default seems to be to use the, external, subtitle file and I find I have to manually turn that off for most things I watch. I do sometimes use the subtitles, so I grab them when possible.

So, is there a way I’ve missed to set this as the default?

Thanks :)

    https://app.plex.tv/desktop#!/settings/audio-subtitle

    Auto-select subtitle mode = Manually

    This will only have an effect on new media or where you did not touch the subtitle selector, yet.
    If you activated subtitles manually on the particular video before (doesn't matter which client), this manual selection is used.

    Thanks heaps for this. I was only hunting on the Fire Stick side of things. Never stopped to consider that it might be at the server end.
