Titles says it all.

I'm hoping Beamer updates soon, but not sure why it won't work all of a sudden! Sucks because we use it alllll the time to watch movies with Spanish subtitles for my wife. Bummer...

I got reply message from Beamer support.

Hi D....,

I apologize, while Beamer 1.7 and later are compatible with the Apple TV software 6.0, subtitles selected from the app will not show when the “Subtitle Language” setting is configured to a specific language.

We’re indeed working on a solution and changing our test process to prevent these kinds of bugs in the future. In the meantime, we suggest that you set the “Subtitle Language” setting to ‘Auto’.

If that’s inconvenient for you, another option is to change the filename of the subtitle to make it show automatically.

Put the subtitle file next to the movie file (in the same folder), give it the same name as the movie file and add a language code at the end.

For example, if you have a movie named ‘Return of the Penguins.m4v’ the Dutch subtitle file should be named ‘Return of the Penguins.nl.srt’

Subtitle files that start with the same name as the movie file (excluding extension) and are in the same folder as the movie will be added automatically. They should appear in the Beamer menu under Controls > Subtitles menu after you open the movie.

This workaround does not work with subtitle files dragged onto Beamer or loaded from the Controls > Subtitles menu.

I finally got update Beamer 1.7.2 to fix subtitles to show on Apple TV 6.0. All streaming movies with subtitles (.srt) are working great!!! :)

Release Notes for Beamer 1.7.2

Fixed an issue where subtitles would not show on Apple TV with 6.0 software.
Improved compatibility with third-party AirPlay receivers.
Fixed an issue where .ass subtitle files would not be associated with the movie automatically.
Support for videos with uneven height.
Fixed an issue where subtitles would not show if the language of the Apple TV is set to British English, Português (Portugal), 简体中文 or 繁體中文 (added in 1.7.2 (17009)).
