How to Play Subtitles on PS4 Media Player

Sony has finally released a media player for the PlayStation 4, only a year and a half after the console launched. The media player, if you’re not aware, should show up on your main PS4 screen, but you will need to first download it in order to use it. Sony has given users the opportunity this time round to play a lot of file formats, including the increasingly popular MKV container. However, despite allowing you to play these formats, the PS4 media player doesn’t at the moment (as of 10 August 2015) allow you to play the embedded subtitles in the files. You have to have external subtitle files named the same as the media file, in the same director. At the moment only external SRT files work, SUB/ASS/SSA/MKS files do not work.

That's like way to much work, there needs to be an update for this option.

I agree, it just needs to be able to play embedded subs. Also, font styles are pretty terrible at the moment, and the gap between lines is massive so looks stupid
