This plugin was designed to have the ability to display forced subtitles with Blu-ray discs. It will auto load DirectVobSub when you play files with certain extentions in NextPVR. By default, it is only enabled for Blu-ray playback (.bdmv,.mpls,.m2ts). You can add more extentions in the settings screen. Extentions should be separated by a comma (no spaces between entries).
If DirectVobSub is registered on your system, the plugin will load the registered version. If it is not registered, it will load it from Plugins\DVSLoader\VSFilter.ax by default or whichever path you specify in the settings. The VSFilter in the plugin folder was renamed with a .ax extention (instead of .dll) to prevent an ImageLoad exception in NPVR. It can have the the dll extention anywhere else on your system.
By having the plugin unregistered, it will ensure that it is ONLY used in NextPVR and ONLY for the extentions you specify.
If DirectVobSub is registered, you can open the filter property pages to have access to all settings. You can register/unregister and view the property pages from the settings screen. You can also use the quick settings without having to view the property pages. If DirectVobSub is registered, it is recommended that you set it to "Do Not Load" or it can break DTS-HD streams in MKV containers.
If the Cyberlink decoders are registered on your system you can modify the settings in the plugins settings screen. When you view the property pages for Cyberlink filters, they automatically get reset to defaults. The plugin settings screen allows you to modify the Cyberlink filter settings without opening the property pages.
Default filter settings are in bold if you ever want to reset them.
To install the plugin:
- Extract the zip file to you the Plugins folder located in your NextPVR program folder. ( eg: "C:\Program Files\NPVR\Plugins")
- That's it (unless you want to make modifications to the settings). The plugin does not have to be "Enabled" in the NPVR Plugins.
To disable the plugin, simply enter "disabled" in the filetypes setting.
