@gamb79: ...well, this time I can't help you much unless I'll have same setup (my "cheap" NAS works OK). Is is definitely not clip dependent (I mean these files are played OK from other media)?...
@EEUG, thx for the quick response. If I put the clips on an external USB HDD and connect this directly to the PS2 everything is ok. (The same clips streaming through the external connection on the NAS hangs the SMS player). I checked the version of SMB on the NAS and it is: 3.0.20b and I know the 3.0.24 is already out, so maybe it is a version problem? I already posted a request for update on the Synology forum. Let's hope that will do trick....
I can't speak for EEUG and SMS, but for myself and uLaunchELF this is definitely a problem I would invest time in, if there was anything practical that I could do about it. But without access to similar hardware that is next to impossible, as I can make no direct experiments involving these symptoms.

ok i am back
found a bug , when a particular movies is about to end it just hangs on the last second of the movie so if i use the automatic shutoff function it just not
do what it must do.
i can go back to sms browser by pressing the traingle button.
But it also hangs when i am not using the poweroff function.
it happens with some of the movies and not with all of them thats
why i have ad a sample, its here,
just play it and when its on the end playing the second last min. of the movie
it hangs. It just not play the last second of the movie.
you can go back to sms browser pressing the triangle button.

sms 1.8 rev1
@lee99: ...yes, I'm aware of this. It can happen when audio track is shorter then video, so video waits for audio to 'sync' but there's no audio, so it waits 'forever' (or until user presses appropriate button). I just didn't have appropriate clip for testing, so, I'll try to fix it with your clip, thank you...
I'm not sure what the reason is yet, although I suspect some syntax error in the SRT tag structures.

Naturally I also tried the same clip with your SRT file which does indeed crash SMS, by freezing it before any playback has started, with the message "Loading subtitles..." still displayed at the bottom of the normal SMS browser screen.

I extracted those subtitles from a matroska video file with mkvextractgui (like I said on the other thread). From episode 1 to 5 all the subtitles worked, but for some reason subtitles form episode 6 crash sms, in the exact same way you explained.
But now I have your subtitles, so I can go and watch episode 6 of monty python flying circus
Thanks for the help and the subtitles
I don't have that exact clip you do, so I used it with another one. The SMS didn't crash... The subtitles were ok. (pal v10 - 50004ss).
@lee99: ...I've fixed the problem with your clip, so, next version will...
@Blackheart: ...I'll try to check your subs later (HDD on my PS2 got corrupted, so, SMS development is suspended for maintenance )...
