Subtitles disappear randomly

Hello, as of version 8.0.A.0.6 I found out that subtitles will not work as they should. They work for some seconds and then randomly disappear and appear. If I advance or go back some seconds, they will also appear or disappear on different dialogs.

It is incredibly annoying and just when I thought that I didn't need to download MX Player on my new Z3 Compact.

Subtitles are very important not just for watching foreign movies but also for watching them at low volumes and still understand what is happening.

I hope the solution is coming, in the meantime I guess I will go back to MX.

Subtitles in ".srt" format and movies in ".mp4".

Re: Subtitles disappear randomly

Does it happen with all video formats( with subtitles) or just MP4 with .srt?

Now that you mention, I just tried an mkv file and it worked great for a few minutes... Must be an issue with mp4s

Nevertheless it still needs to be solved. Mp4 is one of the most popular formats for phones.
