Ok, that real good. Now that’s out of the way, i will ask does this behavior occur when using handbrake to transcode a file from mkv to mp4?
If I turn off the .mkv subtitles the pikes on the CPU disappears and the temps stay low. The problems are the built-in .srt subtitles in the .mkv file.
Is there something to solve this .srt transcoding issue??
You can use handbrake and remove the subs from the file if not required. Are your settings like attachment?
Unfortunately I need the subs, I’ve tried removing the tracks that i don’t use with mkvtoolnix, tried the settings you suggested, tried with external .srt file; nothing works, as soon as i enable the subs the CPU goes from barely nothing to 100% and the temps from 45°C to more than 80°C. The problem is that when some subs are selected PMS redo the transcode of the file while playing it.
Try Smc fan control then, crank up when playing those files.
Just curious to what are playing the file through, TV app or a player like Roku.
