When playing a video with subtitles (either embedded or in a separate file) I'd like to have the subtitles off by default. I know how to turn them off during playback by swiping down, but it's tiresome to do this for every video and detracts from the movie. Thanks.

Are those subtitles external or embedded? I'll be working on saner way for determining default subtitles / audio stream for next update.

I've definitely played files with embedded subtitles (MKV). Pretty sure I've played files with external ones too.

I had no idea you could even swipe down while the movie was playing to change settings...I mean, how were we supposed to know that?

Pull down is the standard on most apps.

Air Video HD was the very first app that I purchased on the new Apple TV.  But those pesky subtitles, I mean how can they be enabled by default beats me, made me thing, ah no, not another regretful appstore purchase. But now that I see that a pull down may help take them out, I'll be happy anough (until the next update).  Otherwise, this application is flawless, plays video in a much sainer manner than your standard DLNA setup (which I have enjoyed since 2009.

 

Please fix the dreaded subtitle issue PRONTO and Air Video HD will more than justify the purchase of an Apple TV (all by itself!!!).

Same here, after a couple weeks of being annoyed by the default enabling of subtitles I thought I was overlooking a setting. Seems like a bit of an oversight to assume users want this ON as a default.

Indeed, please make an option to turn off subtitles as default.

Any idea when the update will be? it's been over 2 months since the last update. I'm just really keen for this feature and love the app.

Hi, could you us find this feature. The one to turn of subtitles by default on the Apple TV 4. This will all save us so much swiping. Thank you :)

Sorry guys about the confusion. You need to go to Subtitles menu (pull from up) with any subtitles selected in order to see the option to disable subtitles by default. I guess having to select subtitles in order to see the option is too confusing. Sorry about that.
