Question about Samsung DVD-HD870 DVD Player

DivX subtitles Hello, Do you know the subtitles specs is terms of fonts and encoding for the above model? Greek subtitles seem to be supported, I can get them working but some of the letters are not displayed correctly. The above happens with ANSI encoding (.srt file) and Unicode - ASCII Escaped. It doesn't seem to work with UTF-8

    Yes the Greek letters are quite unusual, like the ν and the size, I hope with a newer firmware they will solve it

This is one of the better sites around for this type of information.

You can also do a web search with the model number asking about language support, and subtitle support.

Hello, I'm trying to display Arabic srt subtitles ...

If you have Arabic lang. in your windows, and you have the movie (.avi) and the subtitle (.srt) in the same folder with exactly the same name for both 2 files, and you use VLC as media player .. then:

1-Download (Subtitle Edit 2.9.3) software .. it's free!.
2-after setup .. open the subtitle (.srt file ) and adjust "defult file encoding" (same window-left side) to: UNICODE
4- Save (from file tab).
5- You can also adjust the time (later or earlier).

In case you have any questions, my e-mail:

DVD movie onto a CD-RW

first off, your not going to get dvd quality on cd, if ur talking about a standard dvd that u wish to put on cd, dont even bother.

4GB(DVD) to 700MB(CD) ? re-encoding it to that size will look like crap.

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.

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).
