Playing video with subtitles with Twonky Media Server UPnP/DLNA & Showtime
|Assignee:||Andreas Öman||% Done:|

When using Twonky Media Server as UPnP/DLNA server Showtime doesn't display video with subtitles.
If the srt file as the same name that the avi file, Twonky emits something like this:
- http://IP:PORT/disk/DLNA-PNAVI-OP01-FLAGS01700000/O0$3$28I64523.avi (video file)
- http://IP:PORT/disk/DLNA-PNAVI-OP01-FLAGS01700000/O0$3$28I64523.srt (subtitle file)
But showtime doesn't play the video now.
I'm in showtime version GIT-2.99.292.geca67 and Twonky Media Server v6.0.30.

Just adding that: "The music player give me a "ffmpeg error", the photo browsing give the usual "http error 200" and the video player give me a blank screen with the name of file and "Invalid" under (in the log there isn't other...)." like described in https://www.lonelycoder.com/redmine/boards/15/topics/298
So i don't know if the video part as anything to do with subtitles or it's a general error with Twonky.

Tested with 2.99.365.gc277b and still doesn't work.
For music and photos still the problems described in http://www.lonelycoder.com/redmine/boards/15/topics/585
In MUSIC self scroll until the end of music list and logs something like this:
Playqueue error: Unable to probe file: libav error -1
In PICTURES appears the small photo but when click, black screen - no log error.
In VIDEO red message "Unable" some strange error in the log.

PS3 FW 3.55
showtime version: 2.99.365.gc277b in PS3
Twonky Media Sever:v5.0
Access Twonky with WIFI.
For picture and music,my case is same with Andreus.
For video,showtime only can play the video that PS3 original player can play.But for mkv file,it show black screen..no log error.

Tested the same divx avi file in:
1. MiniDLNA | PS3 | Showtime 2.99.365.gc277b -> OK
2. MiniDLNA | PC | Windows Media Player -> OK
3. Twonky 6.0.30 | PS3 | Shotimwe 2.99.365.gc277b -> NOT OK
4. Twonky 6.0.30 | PC | Windows Media Player -> OK
With cable connection PS3<->router.
So, the problem is showtime PS3 reading divx in Twonky.

- Category changed from subtitles to 19
Ok I think I've found the problem. Twonky media server thinks that Showtime is the same thing as the PS3 DLNA/UPNP player (because it knows about the ps3 via its MAC address). Any by doing that it puts itself in some kind of mode that is incompatible with Showtime.
I manage to remove the PS3 under "Media Receivers" in Twonky's interface just to verify this theory but now I can't seem to get it back there so i'm not sure how to resolve the issue.
