Special characters in subtitle

If you have letters with with accents or special symbols in your subtitles (for example: é, ë, å, ß) make sure you save your srt file as 'UTF-8 with BOM'. Normal UTF-8 don't recognize these special characters.

Force subtitle language

If you want to force a subtitle to start on a certain language, no matter what the browser settings are, you can do this by adding some extra code behind the project code. This can also help if you have a database with different languages in your project. In this case you'll have to add "?&iv_force_subtitle=fr" ('fr' is standing here for french). Below is a list of all the languages you can select and their shortcode.
