Subtitles in MKV not working on iPad latest version
I've had this issue for a number of months now and decided to report this bug. I can't remember when, but all the MKV files I have suddenly stopped working. I would select the file I want and it would open the play window, but the file would never load and it would continue to spin as if it was loading. When I press done it shows a message "an unknown error has occurred". If I turn the subtitles to none, then the file loads without problems.
I tried to load up the web interface and play the same file with subtitles enabled, and while it begins to play for the first 5 seconds pretty much instantly, it stops playing after that. That might be related to my network but I don't know.
