Re: Can N8 play .srt (subtitle) files?

Dear Arislgr,

 

converting .srt to .sub is not a hassle at all. It literally takes only 1 second. Use SubRip 1.5, downloadable from here: http://zuggy.wz.cz/dvd.php

 

I am very interested whether SmartMovie can handle separate .sub subtitle files. Will you please check that out for me?

 

Thx: yaka

Yes, it does!

 

I've just tried it, subtitles work fine if you convert them to .sub with Smartmovie.

 

I'm on C7, but should work on N8 as well I guess :smileyhappy:

Dear Trilko!

 

Thanks a lot for the info. Converting from .srt to .sub is very easy and quick. If you use a .sub file, are Hungarian characters supported, like: áéöőüűóú? Will you try that for me, please? I attached a hungarian .sub file (the subtitle for Inception cd1), I simply changed the extension to .log.

 

Thanks a lot,

yaka

Have you seen Nokia Big Screen (from Nokia Betalabs)? The video player accept subtitles!!! Made by Nokia. Time to hope for internal player to be upgraded sometime?

Re: Can N8 play .srt (subtitle) files?

That's Excellent news from Nokia, but where from can I get it  for my  N8? I  cannot  find it on  Ovi store, and the beta labs page  ( http://betalabs.nokia.com/apps/nokia-big-screen ) has no 'download' link.

Nokia has today released an update for the N8 that allows subtitle files to be used with the built in video player. SUB and SRT formats are supported.

You can get the update by doing the following:
Menu > Applications > SW Update > Check for updates.

The update is called "videos" and was released today.

FYI, save subtitles in Unicode to avoid any problems with diacritic letters :smileyhappy:

No idea how to save it in Unicode on Mac. But I'm sure Google has all the answers. There must an equivalent to Notepad on Mac, right?
