    A special thanks to Earthbrain and F2 from http://forums.crackberry.com/.
    Thanks for the great help!

    Hi Steve,
    Whenever i play a movie with subs, there is no audio. Is that normal functionality? I’d like to get sound with the subs at the same time.

    Thanks
    jason

    • Steve says:

      Hi Jason,
      MovieSrtPlayer uses the same “engine” as the default “movies” player. Do you have sound with the default “movies” player?

      Regards,

      Steve

      Hi,
      MovieSrtPlayer is only developed for playbook using the unique playbook QNX operating system.
      The playbook Apps are Adobe® AIR® based and Torch Apps are web or Java based and not compatible with playbook.

    Hi,

    MovieSrtPlayer doesn’t hide the controls on swipe under OS 2.0

    rgds,
    Tommy

    • Steve says:

      Thanks Tommy,
      OS 2.0 is not available for public download yet but I’m working on it!
      regards,
      Steve

      • Tommy says:

        It’s great on OS2 now. Many thanks for fixing it so quickly. Another question: would it be possible to show the dimmed background option only with subtitles when enabled, instead of being shown permanently?

        Rgds,

        Tommy

        • Steve says:

          Hi Tommy,
          Thanks! It was a quick fix ;)
          Great idea, I’ll have a look at it. I’ll integrate it in the next update!

  5. [...] para muchos. Si tienes uno y no sabes como cargar el archivo .srt con subtítulos el programa MovieSrtPlayer es la solución. Los que se han enfrentado con éste problema no requieren mas explicación, pero [...]

    hey there i havent purchased youre app yet but i wanted to know if this can play subtitles injected into a video as a stream….

  7. Bob says:

    Since OS 2 plays MKV, does this app support MKV video files with srt subtitles?

    • Steve says:

      Hi, update 2.0 allows opening .MKV files. There is still a bug with the OS 2.0 update. Renaming your .MKV file to .AVI allows you finding and opening the file. A new update will be available soon!

  8. Otbixx says:

    Hi, just downloaded your app, is there going to be mkv compatibility anytime soon?

    Hi, does this app support videos with the AC3 sound ? It is very important for me. If not, will it be added to next versions ? Thanks.

    • Steve says:

      The MovieSrtPlayer uses the same ‘engine’ as the default playbook movie player. Hopefully AC3 sound support will be available soon. Maybe at the next OS update. The perfect test is trying to open your file with the default player. I you can play it with the default player you will automatically be able to open it with MovieSrtPlayer.

    Hi,

    What matniky means is if it’s possible to watch a movie-file with the subtitles burned in. For instance if I’m watching a Naruto-episode it has the subs burned into the movie. With the native PB-app I can’t see the subs.

    With your program I can’t even find the movie-file, in other words it isn’t visible in the app so I can’t play it. It is an MKV-file. I’m on 2.0 (Srtplayer) and 2.0 last OS-update. I can watch the movie without subs in the native program but can’t find it in your app. I’ve removed you app and redownloaded it. Tried with some other episodes (mkv) but no luck.

    Do you have any idea what could be the case here? Many thanks in advance.
    Roeland

      I’m looking for a solution for subtitles burned into the movie. The .MKV container allows integrating subtitles into the movie, I know. For the moment you have to google for your moviename and look for .srt subtitles. Those files are easy to find and only 100kb big.

      I’m writing an update and I try to extract the .srt file out of the .MKV file. Only problem is that there are a lot op subtitle formats that can be integrated in a .MKV container.

      Anyway, first next update will allow you to find your .MKV file without renaming it to .AVI first.

      Regards

    Hi I just purchased your app because I seen the movie support, but it doesn’t seem to find my mkv files. Is there a way to make them work?

      Hi, Check your mail :) Make sure that you allow the App opening files on your playbook. Check Playbook Security => Permission Details.
