  1. Movies & TV lights up while subtitles are on screen but dims when they’re not


    If I’m watching a movie without any subtitles on the Movies & TV app there are no lighting issues.

    But as soon as I play a movie or episode with subtitles the screen lights up for the subtitles but dims down when they’re gone. So my screen keeps lighting on and off throughout the movie/episode which is annoying.

    I’ve gone in Windows Settings and changed the caption settings but that didn’t work. I also noticed that while charging the lighting stays the same. This screen light on off issue with captions only happens on battery mode. But I don’t want to have to change my power plan just for this movie.

    There should be an option for Movies & TV to show subtitles normally right? Help appreciated!

    How to Run Cyrilic Subtitles On Movies&TV ?

    Hi TonyTonguc,

    Thank you for the reply.

    I suggest you to download the subtitles for the show or the movie and load the subtitles,
    Movies & TV app in Windows 10 supports loading external subtitles. If you are interested in loading an external subtitles file in the
    Movies & TV app on Windows 10.

    1. Try downloading the subtitles for your favorite show or the movie you want to watch. It can be downloaded as a zip file. Following the download, you can save the file anywhere you want, but in
      SRT format.
    2. If you have downloaded the subtitles in a
      zipped
      file, extract them at a suitable location.
    3. Open the video in the Films & TV app and click the Speech bubble button visible just adjacent to the
      volume button. If the file has subtitles encoded, they will appear with the following option displayed –
      Choose subtitle file.
    4. Click Choose subtitle file and select the
      SRT file you downloaded. The subtitles will start appearing on your screen right away
    5. Please note that if your media file features multiple audio tracks, you can choose and switch to the desired subtitle from inside the Movies & TV app.
    6. If you would like to modify or change the audio track, click the Language button next to the
      Play/Pause button.
    7. You should observe a popup list displaying you the available channels. Click the one you want to switch to and the track will change on the fly.

    I look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Regards,

    Windows 10 Movies & TV Subtitle Syncing

    Is there an option to sync subtitles in the Windows Movies & TV app? In VLC, you can press g or h to change the subtitle timing by 50ms, is there a way to do this in Windows Movies & TV? The subtitles on my movie are appearing and disappearing a few seconds
    too soon, it gets annoying pretty fast.
