Re: divx greek subtitles

Look in the menu and try to change the encoding, There should be 3 options, Unicode, Cyrilic & Greek. Select greek if the .sub or .srt file is in ANSI encoding, or select Unicode if the file is in UTF-8 or Unicode encoding.

To find out the encoding of an .srt file the simpliest thing to do is open them with notepad and got to "File" -> "Save as", The encoding should appear in the bottom of the dialog.

Enjoy/watch Blu-ray movies on HDTV via WD TV


Want to find a solution to playback Blu-ray movies on your widescreen TV via WD HD Media Player? As a matter of fact, WD TV HD Media Player promises to play just about any video format you throw at it, including high definition video up to 1080p. You put the videos on any USB mass storage device, like an external hard drive or a thumb drive, and plug it into the device, WD TV HD Media Player will recognize the files on the drive and play any video, audio, or photo files it finds. However, according to the feedback provided by some users, WD TV HD Media Player does play m2ts selectively only, some are, and some are not. In purpose of solving this problem, this post will talk about how to rip Blu-ray movies to USB for playback on TV via WD TV HD Media Player.

WD TV HD Media Player supported file formats:

Video: MPEG1/2/4, WMV9, AVI (MPEG4, Xvid, AVC), H.264, MKV, MOV (MPEG4, H.264), Subtitle SRT (UTF-8)

Audio: MP3, WMA, OGG, WAV/PCM/LPCM, AAC, FLAC, Dolby Digital, AIF/AIFF, MKA Playlist PLS, M3U, WPL


Now let’s have a look at its operation steps.

Choose MKV format, how to rip Blu-ray to MKV?

Step 1
Download, install and run this Blu-ray ripping software
After launched it, you will see the following interface at once. There are three ways provided to import Blu-ray files, namely through clicking on "DVD Rom", "DVD Folder", and "IFO/ISO".

Step 2
Load the Blu-ray disc.
Click on the “DVD Rom” button to import Blu-ray movie from the disc, or click on “DVD Folder” button and browse to your target files. It takes a few seconds to load the whole movie, so be patient. A view log will pop up when loading process completes, you can simply click "OK" to confirm or press Ctrl+O to close it. Now all the M2TS files in file list are checked, right-click and choose "Uncheck All". What you need is the main movie---the one with longest duration. Check it and leave unwanted M2TS files unchecked. You can rename the output file by clicking on the file name in Destination File column. Right below the file list you could find "Subtitle" and "Audio" droplist, where you can set output subtitles and dubbings to the languages you like.


Step 3
Click on Format bar, select “Common Video” from the format list and in submenu you could find MKV video format. If you would like to maintain best quality, just back to the format list and move down your mouse to point at “HD Video”, here you can find “MKV HD Video”. Check it and hit on the small folder icon to specify an output folder. Then click “Settings” and customize advanced audio and video parameters. For instance, you may set Video to 1920*1080p (to fit for the wide screen), 25mbps, 30fps, and Audio to AC3/AAC codec, 192kbps, 5.1 channels. Click "OK" to confirm your settings.

Step 4. Start conversion.

Click on the “Convert” button and the program will rip Blu-ray movies to MKV video format for you very soon. You could set auto shutdown in progress window (it pops up once you click Convert) or leave it there and come back later (the ripper will tell you how long it takes). Enjoy the converted MKV videos!

Once finished, you can get the generated files for WD TV via clicking on "Open" button with ease. Afterwards, just copy the output files to My Passport portable hard drive or other USB drive, and then connect WD TV to your TV, plug your USB drive into the player and you are ready to enjoy the movies ripped from your Blu-rays.

That's all, Enjoy it!

How i can view divx whit subtitles (.srt, .sub.ssa)?

Look for firmware upgrades in Samsung's website.

You have to download a set of files, burn them on to a CD or DVD (check the help file in the download) and then insert the CD or DVD to your DVD Player and follow the on-screen instructions. It is really simple, just make sure you download the correct upgrade from the website. And one advice, use a RW DVD or RW CD because you may have to try it many times ;) .

How to play Blu-ray movies on HDTV via WDTV HD Media Player

It’s an amazing experience to watch HD movies on a home theater system in the living room with your friends or family. WDTV HD Media Player is a reliable gadget to realize this goal, since it can play just about any video format you throw at it, including Full HD video up to 1080p. With this little box, you are able to set free all of your collected photos, videos that stuck on your PC, and play them back on your HDTV. As we all know, Blu-ray disc is a pop medium to store high definition movies, but because of copyright issues, it’s a troublesome thing for users to have access to BD movies at will. Now I would like to share my own experience about how to play Blu-ray movie on HDTV via WDTV HD Media Player, and if you are interested in it, you can feel free to check the following content.
First of all, you should have a brief understanding of WDTV HD Media Player supported file formats:
[b]Video[/b] - AVI (Xvid, AVC, MPEG1/2/4), MPG/MPEG, VOB, MKV (h.264, x.264, AVC, MPEG1/2/4, VC-1), TS/TP/M2T (MPEG1/2/4, AVC, VC-1), MP4/MOV (MPEG4, h.264), [b]M2TS[/b], WMV9
Playlist - PLS, M3U, WPL
Subtitle -SRT, ***, SSA, SUB, SMI
As you can see in the above list, M2TS is included, which is the file extension of Blu-ray streams, so if we want to playback BD .m2ts files, we just need remove BD protection in advance. In that case, Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper would be a good assistant, it is able to remove almost all kinds of copyright protections of BD discs, no matter BD+, or AACS, even MKB Version > 10 is supported as well.
To enable Blu-ray movies to playback on HDTV via WDTV HD Media Player, you can select "Directly Copy" from output format profile. This process will remove BD protections only, and the output .m2ts files will fully match the original files, which will keep high definition totally, but your removable disk should have enough space to save the output files, because the generated file size would be as same large as the original.

Additionally, if you want to save your disk space as well as keep HD quality, you can totally select other format that can be read by WDTV as output format. For instance, here I choose "HD Video" .mkv as output format, through clicking "Settings" button, and then I can set video and audio parameters in the popup window, including setting aspect ratio at 1920*1080, AAC 5.1 channels and something else like bit rate, frame rate, sample rate.

After conversion is finished, just plug your external hard drive or your thumb drive which has stored the output files into WDTV, and then connect the device to your HDTV via HDMI cable. Once done, you are able to enjoy your BD movies now. Well, hope it would be of some help for you guys who are looking around for this info.

This could be a problem with a particular DVD media and not the player. The movie (or the program on the DVD) is recorder with default English subtitle. Have you checked it with any other movie DVD to see if it is the same behavior?

I have the same problem with my Samsung, ιt is the DVD-HD870 and it doesn't recognize all of the greek characters (i get an ο instead of ν & θ)

However, check the file-encoding of the subtitles. If it is ANSI then select greek encoding from the setup menu of the DVD (if available).
