Selecting subtitles?

Post by errol » Mon Nov 27, 2006 6:32 pm

This is a bit off topic. :-)

I added the MKV file "decoder" lib to minimyth. MKV is apparently just a container type for other formats.

But basically what it gives me is a single file that also contains subtitles.

All good so far. If i press "b" on the keyboard then i can cycle through the contained subtitles.

Now, how do i add this to the remote? I tried stuff like:

Code: Select all

begin
    prog = mplayer
    button = title
    config = Key b CurrentWindow
end
and

Code: Select all

begin
    prog = mplayer
    button = title
    config = b
end
All with no effect...

Oh, and i switched to mplayer as xine gives me strange jerky video with divx/xvid, even though CPU usage was low.

Obviously i don't know much about lircd other than getting it basically running... :)

Can anyone shed some light?

Thanx,
Errol

You need to use the lirc command rather the keyboard key.

You can get a list of lirc commands by typing

Code: Select all

mplayer -input cmdlist

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

I have been looking for that list for days! The only command list that i could find was an example input.conf that shipped with mplayer on my backend and that didn't have all the commands... :)

Thanx,
Errol
