Subtitles are not being displayed.

The roku device settings have an option for subtitles/captions - make sure it is set to enabled.

I am assuming that you are talking about the menu with the * key in video which shows 'Closed Captioning' and you can select languages in 'Accessibility'. I have set 'Closed Captioning' to 'On Always' via menu. Also, if I add a .srt file separately using SubtitleTracks, the subtitles are being displayed. I am looking to see what I can do to see the subtitles embedded in the hls.

Re: Subtitles are not being displayed.

Are you using EIA-608 embedded captions?

I don't believe so. The subtitles are vtt files.

Re: Subtitles are not being displayed.

Bump!!! Still wondering if anyone knows that Roku should play embedded vtt files in hls?
