My setup is a desktop that sends to the chromecast on my TV. I'd like to use bubbleupnp to control it.
I've got the bubbleupnp server on my computer.
regular casting works fine, but my god subtitles are a pain in the neck.
With the current setup, bubbleupnp is giving me a lot of trouble. If I use an MKV with subtitles it gives me a "subtitle can't be extracted" error. If I put the subtitle on my phone (Srt) it recognizes it, but when I try to use it, it says something like upload failed, it can't seem to add them to the existing stream.
I'm using Windows 7 64 bit on my desktop.
I also have xbmc, but apparently that doesn't support external subtitles.
I tried serviio, but that doesn't work on windows 7 64 that well (console wouldn't launch). seems to be many reports of it not working on their site.
I'd like this to "just work". I could go through the trouble of encoding hard sub videos, but screw that. I can chromecast a tab with a movie open and subtitles on it (that works) but I like the whole media library access to be able to just choose files with my phone.
Any ideas on what I need here as googling is mostly leading to half forgotten forum posts and whispers of possible updates and no real solutions. The specific issues I'm getting with subs don't come up at all on search.
