First, love MX Player, been using it for years for both local and network playback on Android devices in our household. Now, SMB support has improved much over the years, and is now more or less flawless. One thing though, often — especially when it comes to television series — there is a subfolder that is 99% of the times named Subs, where the subtitles are located. Now, in my case, I use Total Commander for all operation on my Android devices, and use the "Play (in foreground)" option in the SMB tree to make it start streaming over the LAN at home. Now, if the video.mp4 and subtitle.srt is in the same folder on the NAV/Windoze box/whatever, it loads up automatically, but not if it's in the .\Subs\ folder. Would this be possible to fix? Many players (e.g. MPC-HC) has .\Subs\ automatically searched since it's a very common place for subtitles to land. As for now, if I depend on subs, I need to prepare by moving them to be in the folder where the (for instance) television series season is. For those who has collections and wish to preserve a specific folder tree structure, this can be somewhat a hassle. Of course, this is truly a first world problem.
Thanks for a great player.
