    Closed Caption plugin for Os mio 4K

    Hello,

    I am using the Edision OS mio 4K with the OpenVix image.

    I am also very hard of hearing and would like to be able to activate closed captioning on FTA channels in North America.

    I can get closed captioning by streaming the channels though VLC, but I would like to be able to do it directly on my TV.

    I can also code in Python. Can someone give me a general framework for developing a closed caption plugin for OpenVix? Or is it even possible?

    Thank you.

    Unfortunately, when you press the subtitle button on the Edision remote, there are no subtitles. Just a black circle with a bar. But you can stream the channel through VLC and the subtitles will appear on the screen.

    So, the subtitles are in the stream, but cannot be displayed on my TV directly from my OS mio. I would like to be able to fix this with a plugin and if someone can give me some guidance, I might be able to code it myself.

    There are no plugins for subtitles that I am aware of, it is all done in cpp code. https://github.com/OpenViX/enigma2/c.../esubtitle.cpp I am sure if somoen knows of one they will post details for you.

    What you described is a "button not allowed" icon, that may need fixing in the keymap. Start Enigma2 in console mode (details on commands link in my signature) and double check or enable debug logs and check that way. Alternatively, use the openwebif remote and try enabling subtitles that way. I appreciate you don't believe it is possible.

    If American subtitles/ closed caption are not available on Enigma2, then work would need to be done in the file I linked above.

    Ok, thanks. I will try your keymap suggestion and report back. If that doesn't work, I will take a look at the github file and see if I can figure it out.

    That would be great for myself and others who have a difficult time hearing. Thank you again for your help.
