#10735 closed Bug Report - General (Fixed)

mythvideo doesn't honour forced subtitle flag in mkv

Reported by: alex@… Owned by: stichnot
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.25.1
Component: MythTV - Captions Version: 0.25-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords: subtitles
Cc: Ticket locked: no

Description

As per this thread http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/517574?page=last, I'm creating a ticket for this issue and providing a sample file.

The sample file is 5 minutes from 'The Mummy'. It has a single subtitle track with the forced flag set. A good example of where the subtitles should be automatically displayed but aren't is at around 2m10sec.

For a probably limited time only, I've opened up my firewall to allow web access to the world...

http://82.70.67.142/forcedsubssample.mkv.nc

I've also made the sample file available as a torrent. I've not got a lot of upload bandwidth, so using the torrent may be quicker.

http://82.70.67.142/forcedsubssample.mkv.nc.torrent

Oh, and because I'm paranoid, I've used mcrypt to encrypt the file. PM me for the password.

I hope somebody can get this working or tell me how I should be creating mkvs.

Kind Regards,
Alex

In d5ce98e26d71500a48e5a40f544abb1fd9ca7684/mythtv:

Subtitles: Enable forced subtitle tracks. Refs #10735

If the subtitle track is marked as forced, mark each individual
subtitle as forced even if it isn't individually marked in the stream.
Some mkv rips of DVDs appear to be structured this way.
