VideoStation with external subtitles

Postby ytwig » Sun Sep 02, 2012 10:04 am

Hi all,

How can i set the encoding of ".srt" subtitles?
Video Station shows me the option to have the subtitle, but with wrong encoding. (seeing gibrish)

This happens using the iPhone application.

Thanks.

DS video will try to guess the encoding of srt files. To avoid the encoding issue, please use UTF-8 in srt files.

Thanks, is this a DS video that does the conversion or is it the server?
If it's the server, is there any other way then to convert all subtitle files to UTF-8?
Is there any default encoding setting i can set?

Default encoding settings will be highly appreciated.
Or per video settings for subtitles encoding.
UTF-8 might be a good option but not always.
