Appearantly, the Samsung LCD does not like mkv containers which contain subtitles as seperated track. But it can read .srt files, so let’s try to extract them 🙂

$ mkvmerge -i movie.x264.mkv
File 'movie.x264.mkv': container: Matroska
Track ID 1: video (V_MPEG4/ISO/AVC)
Track ID 2: subtitles (S_TEXT/UTF8)
Track ID 3: subtitles (S_TEXT/UTF8)
Track ID 4: audio (A_AC3)
$ mkvextract tracks movie.x264.mkv

And then name the .srt the same as .mkv

$ mv

It works 🙂
