PS: When plugins run it check if a storage is atached, if yes emplexer create a folder dune_plugin_logs on top of this storage, and make logs on file emplexer.log. Default Player method is over http, in this method external subtitles is not supported, but internal is. Currently play over nfs/smb is fully supported. To activate, go to Setup -> Applications -> emplexer -> connectionType and select nfs, smb or http. When emplexer play stream over nfs/smb external subtile automatic used, but, subtitle menu is not acessible (in http method too). Stream dvd folder, DVD ISO, Bluray ISO and BDMV folder only possible on nfs/smb method, in this case default player is used and plex not involved. if you submit a bug report, plese if possible submit with emplexer.log, this is make my work is much more easy :).
