I have som mp4 files that comes with internal subs. However, when I play the file and enable English subs (volume is low not to wake the kids) the format tags are displayed. So every line of the subtitles look like this:
[font color="#ffffff"]This is the subtitle text[/font]
Anyway to hide the tags and only display the subtitle?
I never had or heard of your issue before but it try this:
Download mkvtoolnix ( it’s free)
Drag and drop your mp4 file into it
Select the subtitle string
Chose the right language in the subtitle settings menu
Create a mkv
Play the newly created mkv file with the same content as your mp4 on your vero and see if the issue is fixed
Ps: Is the font color tag still displayed on screen if you try to play the problematic file on pc using vlc, mpc-Hc or similar?
Might be a bug with the subs themselves. Do you have a link?
It’s a timed text (3GPP) subtitle implicit the mp4 file. If I rip the sub with mp4boxgui to a .srt it displays everything correctly.
VLC has the same issue and reports it as:
- Codec: tx3g
- Type: Subtitle
If VLC is also affected it’s probably not a Kodi issue
