Have you wanted to throw your remote at the TV when you particularly wanted the subtitles to work on your TV? Fret not, Jammi’s here! When you connect your external media and play a movie from a USB drive, external hard disk, etc just make sure the movie file and the subtitle file are in the same folder.
Now that the hard part’s out of the way, the final step is to rename the movie files and the subtitle file with the exact same names.
Example: darthvaderlikesme.mp4 and darthvaderlikesme.srt
Voila! You are now on your way to teletext heaven. Note that colored subs do not work on my Samsung TV. They show up as an RGB or pantone reference.
