MX Player is popular in Android TVs, nowadays.

This site "" says MX Player does support "text styling and coloring script", but it does not explain how or which format of the subtitle this assertion was meant to be. Perhaps, it means SSA may be, but certainly not in SRT format.

I mean, MX Player does support displaying SRT file format subtitle, but refuse to display according to instruction tags on the text line, such as <i>...</i>, {\fs12\fnCalibri}, <font color=#AAAAAAFF>....</font>, etc.

I like helping community to translate and sync subtitles, and I find SRT being most popular.

I really hope MX Player would considering in supporting SRT text styling and coloring scripts, so that what appears on PC (VLC, Codec Home Media Player, etc) may also appear on the Android TVs using MX Player.
