Forced subtitles support
Currently there is no support for the “forced flag” within mkv video files. This means that movies like Avatar with foreign language parts will not show the subtitles in case they have the forced flag, which is the usually way to implement those subtitles. At the moment one has to manually activate the subtitles for those movies.
Many other players from Egreat, Popcorn Hour or Dune support this.
+1 : no support for the “forced flag” within mkv video files --> very problematic and surprising that zappiti player 4K HDR does not support that

Hey. When watching movies, when selecting subtitles, I would like to see the NAME of the subtitle. At the moment, only the language is visible. Ideally should look like this: Language, Name.
My ISO blurays aren't playing forced subs either. It's frustrating.
And just to add one other issue the op did not cover, if you have full blu ray rips, and they include forced pgs subtitles, you cant even select the forced subtitle stream, they activate by the forced flag, so you literally get all subtitles then, unless you find forced subtitles manually, or remux these out yourselves which is a huge hassle. Every forum i visited looking for feedback on this machine this is the first issue raised and I cant believe it has not be suggested as an idea or addressed.
Love the player, but im returning one here in canada because of this.
Im not searching for blu ray subtitles by hand anymore. Popcorn hour supports this and most htpc software, its the biggest shortfall of zappiti for watching movies.
