Subtitle Files with (.SRT) on Samsung

Generally To play movies with subtitle from USB connected to Samsung TV, you have to download the subtitle file (from example http://www.subscene.com/) rename the subtitle file name to be the same (with different extension of course)  name as your movie name and you need to select Samsung profile in the console.
the thought related to the title here is that some subtitle  files with .SRT extension  are not recognized by the TV, this is usually because the timing sequence beginning with 0 sequence number instead of one (inside the srt file).
To fix this all you need is to remove the line that starts with 0 .

نفس مشكلة الاخوة .. الحروف متفرقه وبالعكس !!
لا اعلم ما هي الحكمة من ادراج العربية بهذه الصورة الغبية !

Muhamad Azmy said...

I know this is a pretty old bolg, but you may be able to provide help about the issue I have.
I recently bought a samsung smart tv model (UA40D6000SN), Arabic subtitles just works out of the box (of course I had to set the language to arabic first), BUT I have a weird issue with it during playing .. when there is a kinda long line, the tv shows few words and then append 3 dots to the end of the line, but it never displays the following part of the line, and just skips it to the next one !! did any one face this issue before

i found solution for broken Arabic subtitle . you need to change your tv region to any arabic region for example EA_ARABIC then it will work correctly how ever to do this you need to have access to extended menu using remote emulator or check with you provider to change tv region.

Ahmed El-Attar said...

Well, great effort, you were very helpful...

Thanx in advance :)

Abdulrahman Keilani said...

Guys I have a solution :
first change the language of your Samsung tv to ARABIC , so all the menus would be in Arabic . then go to subtitles option , then encoding and choose Arabic

Dears,

Thank you all for sharing your experiences ..
For me, nothing from the above worked except for the last comment "Changing Language" .. Once the Language is set to Arabic .. the rest just worked fine :)

Thank again.

Sam Fisher said...

I don't know if this is the right place to ask this question, but I will ask anyway.
The Arabic subtitles are displayed with strange characters (maybe Chinese) on my (Samsung Galaxy Tab2 10.1inch P5100), is there any setting or program that will display them in the correct characters (I mean Arabic)??
