This is the official thread for an agent named srt2utf-8


If you are having the problem, that national characters in your subtitles, that are not embedded in the movie, but either downloaded by yourself and put next to the movie (Sidecar SRT) or a subtitle automatically fetched by the  Open-Subtitle Agent, are displayed as garbage, then this Agent might be the answer for you!


In short, it'll make sure, that your subtitle files are encoded in utf-8, so national character-sets doesn't show as garbage in the players


If you are having problems with this plugin, then feel free to post a Question in this thread, but I urge you to at least read the manual first


Find it here:



 or simply install via the Unsupported AppStore V2
