    The chromecast gets better every day. I had no idea you could play movies from the hard drive like that. This was well worth $35! I'm going to need two more for my other tv's.

    I think the subtitle is not really "in" the video. It is part of the encoding or something. The chromecast extension is not seeing or decoding the subtitle. It is the same with audio too. Sometime people play mp4 files and only see the video and no audio because chromecast is not reading certain type of audio encoding.

    Have you tried casting the desktop (under chromecast option experimental)? It will probably show you the subtitle, but it won't have any audio.
