Remote Subtitle in VOD Stream

Post by acamposxp »

I know that this issue has already been discussed here. But honestly, no answer was clear and not objective. Just so I will insist on the issue:

1. What is the tag should be added to a m3u playlist to support remote subtitle stream in (VOD)?
subtitle-track="http://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/***/***.srt" ?

2. What is the format supported? (I know that WebOS only accepts subtitle VTT)

subtitles="subtitles_url" - for external subtitles
subtitles="subtitles_language_code" - for internal subtitles (if there are many subtitles tracks in stream)

Ok. But the SS-IPTV only be accepted if this additional information is in a list on a USB (even when the subtitle is online)?

Included the subtitles = "subtitles_url" option in a list m3u and imported to the SS-IPTV using the OPEN option "http://ss-iptv.com/en/users/playlist" in this format:

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:0 tvg-logo="http://xxx.jpg" subtitles="http://xxx.srt", title
https://xxx.mp4

But when using the DOWNLOAD option subtitle tag has been ignored by SS-IPTV.

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:0 tvg-logo="http://xxx.jpg", title
https://xxx.mp4

Thanks!

It is possible to "force" an automatic sequence with several stream a single title, as in the example below (some players support this)?

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:-1 tvg-logo="http://someware.html/image.jpg", Test
http://someware/part1.mp4
http://someware/part2.mp4
http://someware/part3.mp4
http://someware/part4.mp4
#EXTINF:-1 tvg-logo="http://someware.html/image1.jpg", Test 1
http://someware/part1.mp4
http://someware/part2.mp4
http://someware/part3.mp4
http://someware/part4.mp4

Yes, it is. But we have no plans to do so. I don't see the reason. What is use case?

1, it is a way, for example, having a sequence of cartoons to entertain children without human intervention, because the next drawing would be started automatically. This would be of great value.
2. It could be a way to make a playlist with multiple musical clips to automatically touch without human intervention.
3. ...

I don't see the reason to create such a playlist

Code: Select all

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:-1 tvg-logo="http://someware.html/image.jpg", Test
http://someware/part1.mp4
http://someware/part2.mp4
http://someware/part3.mp4
http://someware/part4.mp4
#EXTINF:-1 tvg-logo="http://someware.html/image1.jpg", Test 1
http://someware/part1.mp4
http://someware/part2.mp4
http://someware/part3.mp4
http://someware/part4.mp4


Why not to create so:

Code: Select all

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:-1, Test, part 1
http://someware/part1.mp4
#EXTINF:-1, Test, part 2
http://someware/part2.mp4
#EXTINF:-1, Test, part 3
http://someware/part3.mp4
#EXTINF:-1, Test, part 4
http://someware/part4.mp4
#EXTINF:-1, Test 1, part 1
http://someware/part1.mp4
#EXTINF:-1, Test 1, part 2
http://someware/part2.mp4
#EXTINF:-1, Test 1, part 3
http://someware/part3.mp4
#EXTINF:-1, Test 1, part 4
http://someware/part4.mp4


or even so:

Code: Select all

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:-1 description="Part 1", Test
#EXTSIZE: Medium
http://someware/part1.mp4
#EXTINF:-1 description="Part 2", Test
#EXTSIZE: Medium
http://someware/part2.mp4
#EXTINF:-1 description="Part 2", Test
#EXTSIZE: Medium
http://someware/part3.mp4

Maybe you do not understand the reason that I proposed. The question is not list parties. And yes simulate a playlist so that the sequence be given automatically. A party mode. An analogy to this is how YouTube works.
Stream only: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rRP1pf6NTPQ
Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kOkQ4T5 ... 7fax8fdxoj
