For auto-select of the external subtitle in your language, you have to set Default Subtitle (in Advanced during playback) with your language. You can also set it in Auto. But in this case, please make sure that the general language of Android Settings is set with your language (Green Button / Language) as explained in the user guide.  

How to add several external subtitles

To add multiple external subtitles, please rename your subtitle files with as following:

Metropolis.en-US.srt (for English)
Metropolis.es-ES.srt (for Spanish)
Metropolis.fr-FR.srt (for French)
Metropolis.it-IT.srt (for Italian)

Forced Subtitles

To take advantage of the forced subtitles, please place your subtitle file in the same folder as the movie and specify the language code after the movie title. For example:


Italic Subtitles

Italic subtitle tags are not yet supported by Zappiti in SRT files or ASS/SSA. If your SRT or ASS/SSA subtitles contain italic tags, they are ignored and the italic characters are displayed in straight characters. To enjoy subtitles with the right italic aspect, you can use the PGS (.sup) or IDX (.sub / .idx) standards that are fully compatible with the italic aspect.

To convert your external subtitle files to PGS, we advise you to use easySUP.

To use PGS subtitle as external subtitle, please use .sup extension.

You can then import and integrate them into your video files using tsMuxeR, multiAVCHD, Scenarist or other tool.
