All embedded subtitles (VOBSUBS) for Extras do not show when Direct Playing.

If an Extra (e.g. /Behind The Scenes) is played back on the Nvidia shield in 'Original Quality' then the subtitles will not play; if the quality is changed to Automatic then the subtitles will show. This is a bug.

Media info of subtitle.
