My new Samsung Q70T TV will not display VobSubs. I have two older Samsung TVs (6300 & 6500 series) that do display VobSubs. That’s the reason I bought another Samsung when one of the older ones developed a flaw.
I build all my MKV videos the same way, Video+Audio+VobSub+SRT. I add the SRT as a way of preserving the original text. All the VobSubs are created with SubtitleEdit. I build all my MKVs with an old version of MKVMergeGUI (v7.7.0). I have used V49 but it did not make any difference. When I go into ‘Options’ on the video and select ‘Subtitles’ it shows that there are two subtitles present, VobSub being the default since it’s first.
Now the confusing part. On a few (two actually) of the videos only the first subtitle line displays in VobSub format. After that nothing. I then have to select the SRT subs. I have gone through the TV options to see if something need to set but nothing jumps out.
I have searched the WEB looking for answers but have yet found nothing. I don’t know if I’ll find an answer but I know there is a lot of hidden knowledge in these forums so I thought I would throw this out there and perhaps get an insight to a possible solution.
