Subtitles and Audio Tracks

  • Updated

Infuse for Apple TV includes support for subtitles (embedded and external) and multiple audio tracks. Details for using these features are below.

Using Subtitles

External subtitles: To add subtitles to a file that does not contain it's own subtitles you can use SRT files. A good place to find a wide variety of (free) SRT files is

  1. Locate the SRT file you wish to use.
  2. Rename the SRT file to match the name of the video you wish to use it with. (E.G. Inception.2010.mkv and
  3. Place the SRT file in the same location as the video file.

Embedded subtitles: If your files already contain subtitles there are no special steps required.

Enabling Subtitles & Adjusting Options

Step 1: While a video is playing, hold the center (select) button to open the Playback menu and click the Subtitles tab.

Step 2: Select the subtitle language/file you wish to use. For some languages you may also need to adjust the encoding type so special characters are displayed correctly. Through this menu you can also adjust options such as subtitle appearance, position, and offset.


Note: You can also choose whether subtitles are enabled/disabled by default by using the 'Show Subtitles' option found in the Infuse --> Settings menu.

Downloading Subtitles

As of version 1.6, subtitles can be downloaded from right on the Apple TV.

Step 1: Locate and play the desired video file.

Step 2: While the video is playing, press and hold the center (select) button.

Step 3: Navigate to the Subtitles tab and select the 'Get More...' option.
