I'm using Shark007 to play MKVs (DVD and BD rips) in Windows Media Center. I know a lot of users here prefer to launch an external player (like MPC-HC) through a plug-in (like MB) to achieve WMC integration, but I'm striving to keep everything simple.
So far, Shark007 does exactly that. It's amazing how simple it is. All of my MKVs play in WMC from the native Movie Library.
But I cannot for the life of me get subtitles to display properly. If open an MKV in Graphstudio, subtitles display as expected using DirectVobSub (but for some strange reason, it opens 4 instances of the program). However, in WMC DirectVobSub never opens and subtitles are not displayed.
This is using Lav Video. I can get subtitles to show if I use FFDShow, but I'm trying to use Lav (this seems to be the latest and greatest). I even tried uninstalling Shark, downloading Lav and DirectVobSub -- same thing.
Any ideas? Suggestions to try? Things to test?
EDIT: subs are internal, ripped from the disc by me using MakeMKV (I even used MKVMerge to edit the flags -- no effect).
