Showtime 3.0 dont read and display external .sub subtitle

Added by alexandru alin about 9 years ago

Showtime 3.0 dont read and display external .sub subtitle ( see .sub subtitles example in atachament).
.sub is a popular subtitle TEXT format for movie ( 20% subtitles from my movies for example )

Another feature not implementet, but very good: to memorize last position of time watching of the movie, exactly how PS3 original player has this feature.

Thanks for last revision 3.0, make Showtime the best homebrew aplication for PS3 !

I know you say, anyway thanks for advice. The idea is that would have been better if Showtime would be able to read the subtitles in the format mentioned directly, it would be better for user convenience, just as it was implemented this feature in any standalone video player for home or player for computers ( VLC, MKV Player, BS Player etc ). I am convinced that adding these possibilities isnt a very hard work for a talented programmer as the creator of this application ( Showtime ), application without it, why not admit it, PS3 would have very many shortcomings on the media. Sony should reward transform of PS3, a multimedia system relatively poorly in one truly competitive system in the world of media players. :)

Problem is your subtitles and not Showtime.
Your subtitle files are in srt format so rename the extension from .sub to .srt and will start to work again.
.sub timing format is in frames but .srt format has time tags = your .sub is in fact .srt

"your .sub is in fact .srt"

This is problem, now solved ! Very good answer, thanks very much ! Ans so apperar a new need, a new feature to implement: Showtime to detect the real subtitle format, like other pc players, when subtitle extension is wrong.
