When I look at a video directly on YouTube, I can get subtitles just fine. When I look at the same video on PowerDVD on YouTube despite clicking on the primary or secondary subtitles menu, there are no subtitles. I imagine that the subtitles are on a separate track that is not getting passed to PowerDVD. Is there a remedy? I would like to do this in order to scrub the incessant ads. Maybe the scrubber is scrubbing the subtitles as well.

Hello,

This is a known issue for auto-generated Subtitles/Closed Captions, and should be fixed in the near future. For regular subtitles, it should work. It did in my tests. For example, in this video:

Coincidentally, I looked at that same video a few minutes before reading your message. When I tried it in Powere DVD, unfortunately, no subtitles. When you say regular subtitles, do you mean those added by the creator and not auto-generated? I am not sure how to tell the difference. My example is one of the Inspector Lewis episodes on the BritTV channel. I don't know if those are supplied by the creator or auto-generated.
Any idea on why the playback on the casted to Roku would be so "jerky"?

Hello,

See the attached screenshot YTsubtitles.jpg of YouTube subtitle settings. If you click the gear icon and then select Subtitles, "auto-generated" subtitles are indicated. Creator added won't have the "auto-generated" behind it.

I am not having problems here seeing non auto-generated subtitles from this video or with lagging during streaming, so suggest you contact CyberLink about this issue:

Thank you, I'll do that. One phenomenon that I have noticed is when looking at CBS News for example on YouTube is that when the video starts what appears to be a script of the subtitles appears for about a second on the screen but there is no synchronization.

From what I can deduce a creator may or may not provide subtitles, the owner of a channel on YouTube who bundles others' videos may or may not include those creator provided subtitles and the ones that do seem to work on PowereDVD. Auto-generated subtitles do not work on PwereDVD. Is that generally correct?
