Nvidia Shield Tv 6.13.6 - Still no ass and ssa support.

As I afraid there is still no support for direct play ass or ssa subtitle with new app. I tried, since the new version is available for me from today, and as suspected the server starts to transcode. Neither intern subtitle nor extern one will play directly.
Why are you hating subtitle so much?

    Im quoting the devs here:

    In the new beta player, you can direct play ASS subtitles. We only offer basic support though and don't yet support embedded fonts and the other features. If you go into the settings and change the subtitle preference to Burn Image Subtitles Only they should direct play for you!

    You will need to switch it back for image based subs.

    Thx for the response. Of course it's not satisfying and very inconvenient. If they have it in beta i am looking forward to test it after a release. Due to the fact that my wife uses the shield very extensive, too, i can't come up with a beta version. Sorry i am not in the extrem sport "clash with your wife". ;)

    Thats not beta, sorry that was a direct quote. If you're using the newest version, all of the above still holds true.

    So I will remain at Kodi with PKC.
