Using local subtitles
External subtitles files can be used when playing local or streamed videos. Simply give the subtitle file the same name as the video, and make sure it's stored in the same folder.
E.G. Inception-2010.mkv and Inception-2010.srt
Infuse will also recognize multiple subtiles in different languages.
E.G. Inception-2010.mkv and Inception-2010-en.srt / Inception-2010-de.srt / Inception-2010-fr.srt
Note: Infuse will automatically download matching subtitles when downloading videos from network or cloud shares.
Downloading subtitles from OpenSubtitles
Subtitles can also be downloaded on the fly from OpenSubtitles.
Step 1: While playing a video tap the small gear button in the upper right-hand corner to open the subtitles options panel. Any available subtitles will be listed here, and can be selected or have their appearance adjusted.
Step 2: Additional subtitles can be downloaded (for free) from OpenSubtitles.org by tapping the 'Get More...' option. Select your language (you'll only have to do this once) and any available subtitles will be listed below.
Importing subtitles from other apps (iOS only)
Subtitles can also be added from other apps like Dropbox, Google Drive, and Mail.
Step 1. Locate the subttiles in the exporting app, and select the Open In... option to add the video to Infuse.
Step 2. Selecting Infuse will automatically import the subtitle file.
Step 3. Once imported, the subtitle file can be associated with any video file you choose through the playback settings menu (tap gear icon while a video is playing). To start, open the playback settings menu and choose Get More...
Step 4. Choose Imported.
Step 4. Select the subtitle file you just added, and it will be displayed when you resume the video.
Customizing subtiles when streaming via AirPlay
With Apple TV Software 6.0 and later, you can customize how subtitles are displayed to meet your needs.
Step 1. On the Apple TV navigate to the Settings > General > Accessibility > Subtitles and Captioning > Style menu.
Note: You can choose one of the predefined styles: Default, Large Text, or Classic.
Step 2. To create your own style, select Create New Style… You can change the font, size, and color of the text and the color and opacity of the background. A preview of the style will appear.
Step 3. Press Menu to save the style and set it as the default.
Problem: Subtitles are not displayed while using AirPlay
For some languages, the Subtitle Language setting may need to be set manually. This option can be found on the Apple TV in the Settings > Audio & Video > Subtitle Language menu.
Note: AirPlay only supports textual based subtitles, so some subtitle formats like VobSub will not be usable. In these cases you can use the integrated OpenSubtitles download option to obtain subtitles that can be used for AirPlay.
