I recently installed my book world edition white light. Works great, but for some reason, srt subtitles aren't working anymore. When I put the same files on a USB drive, they work fine. Is this a known issue? Any solution to this? Very annoying since I specifically got the NAS to be used with my PCH-A100.
You can't watch movies on a WD Worldbook…..
Although I know what you mean, it's still something you should think about.
The worldbook is just a storage server…
I assume you're using the twonky uPnP-server and and uPnP client on another device.
It's this device which is to blame if anything is to blame at all.
I have never seen it working with uPnP. You can try to access the movies using samba (Windows Networking).
I have tried xbmc as an uPnP-client in the past, debugged it and found the exact reason why it is going wrong…
Don't expect to get a solution in the near future….
Subtitles are only for "foreigners" (non-english speaking) watching pirated DVD-rips…. (don't take this as an accusation.. I want it to work as well)
I know it's a storage unit. I have a popcorn hour a-100 connected to a dlink dir-655 router. MBWEII is also connected to the router and i thought i could stream video to the popcorn hour with subtiles, but I was wrong. MBWEII doesn't even suport my usb external drive beacuse it's formated with ntfs. I guess I have to wait for a firmware upgrade or sell the damn thing.
If you still have the MBWEII and not been able to sell or upgrade it then you can always improve it using the ipkg feeds. Once you have followed the tutorial for getting feeds working on the MBWEII you can then use /opt/bin/.ipkg install and I think its ntfs or ntfs-utils or ntfs-3g. Cannot remember which is the best to use. However you can also use the command ipkg list | grep ntfs and see which packages are available. Then install it with ipkg install pkgname. You might then have to modprobe the ntfs driver produced. Then mount the ntfs drive. I use ntfs to access other drives through the usb so know that it works but haven't got access to it at the moment.
In terms of support for subtitles you need an end device capable of playing srt or the type of subtitle files you have got. The popcorn hour works with srts so although what frater said is right, once you get ntfs working you should be able to play with subtitles through your pch 100.
