My setup is the following:
Plexserver = QNAP TVS-471
Plex client= WebOS plex app on LG OLED65c7v connected via ethernet)
I can play my 4K movies with HDR activated perfectly but only when I disable the subtitles. If I use the embedded subtitles, the server starts transcoding and the movie stutters and HDR is never activated.
What I have tried so far:
- remux the movie with mkvtoolnix to replace the VOBsub with embedded srt subtitles.
- remux the movie with mkvtoolnix to remove all embedded subtitles and only use external srt subtitles.
- tried to play the movie in Xplay both with vobsub and srt (horrible app btw, want to keep away from that).
The above steps do not work and all give the same result.
I am not a native English speaker but my English is ok. So if the choice is HDR enabled or subtitles, it's an easy one. Still I would prefer to have the option to add subtitles.
Does anyone know of this issue and have a solution to it? (aside from hardcoding the subtitles which will take forever with my pc and moving the 4K movies back and forth between my NAS and PC)
Thanks for any info!
