Support for subtitles in PLX playlists [NAVI-X]

Added by ßlueplanet . over 8 years ago

I recently found a tutorial showcasing some navi-x features exclusive to showtime

http://psx-scene.com/forums/content/tutorial-showtime-plugin-navi-x-exclusive-features-guide-plx-creators-2509/

Among which is a feature I have been trying to use

Here's a quote from facanferff

Now, its possible for PLX creators set subtitles for videos, in video item types, you should use the following syntax

subtitle.PT=http://example.com/portuguese.srt

I dont understand where in the item I'm supposed to put the line of code?
here is a video item example:

type=video
name=Me And Josh
date=2014-09-05
URL=https://www.dropbox.com/s/gf01ybc6fmr0ff0/doing^aSP.mp4
player=default
rating=-1.00
description=Whos ready for some fun at the park today./description

and this is the line I have been testing with
subtitle.ENG=https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/i4jm3ef6snd0mj5/raid.srt?dl=0

any help would be greatly appreciated :)

Try like that:

type=video
name=Me And Josh
date=2014-09-05
URL=https://www.dropbox.com/s/gf01ybc6fmr0ff0/doing^aSP.mp4
subtitle.EN=https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/i4jm3ef6snd0mj5/raid.srt?dl=0

No unfortunately it hasn't worked :(

I have made a simpler working video item with a test sub file, the video is only a minute long and the subtiles should read "SUBTITLE TEST" every couple of seconds, would you be able to test it for me?

# 2342144
type=video
name=Youtube Test File
date=2014-09-08
URL=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ZqG5vvVMG8
subtitle.EN=https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/tbb4zx0wbruxts2/english.srt
player=default
rating=-1.00
description=Youtube test file./description

I have also tried changing all the subtitles settings on/off, but I think it could be a combination of sub settings and the way the item is setup.

I have also emailed Fábio to ask for more information, but I think he no longer uses his old Hotmail account.

Thank you very much for your help Leonid :)

I know why this happens. You set subtitles correct, but what navi-x plugin is doing on that URL is calling youtube:simple:video:title:9ZqG5vvVMG8

And youtube plugin is not aware of subtitles from navi-x!

If you set direct videolink - it should work.

But anyway I will try to fix that problem.

I have updated to the latest navi-x and youtube, but unfortunately the subtitles still aren't showing :(

Can you please try with youtube style before and also please give me your current PLX link to with googledrive style.

RE: Support for subtitles in PLX playlists [NAVI-X] - Added by ßlueplanet . over 8 years ago

The youtube item now has the subs :)

But no direct links, could the fix be applied to any server?

RE: Support for subtitles in PLX playlists [NAVI-X] - Added by ßlueplanet . over 8 years ago

here is a link to a PLX file with a googledrive style link within
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/s9lzomd2py7kqla/gdrive%20style.PLX

But the main server I use has links like this
http://37.58.68.213/index.php?file=3862&start=0&hd=1&auth=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx&type=mp4&tv=0

I have replaced the auth number with xxxx as I have to pay a membership fee each month and so I cant reveal it publicly or I will be banned from the service.

Glad to hear it works :) Just for the info - navi-x plugin processes videos for three cases:
1. Youtube style
2. Processor style
3. Direct link style

facanferff added support for p.2. So I've added support for p.1 and p.3 ;)
