    That sounds like you're using libav instead of ffmpeg. Let me guess, you're on some old version of Ubuntu? Support for subtitles in libav is lacking. Certain other stuff is also lacking in libav. While mpv works with it, the mpv devs strongly recommend using ffmpeg.

    PS. Your mpv version is also old, it's at 0.27 now.

      It appears that Chromecast support is still Windows only

        CastNow is not that hard to use.

          Thanks I'll check it out. Weird that I didn't run into it when I last looked for a Chromecast solution.

            This is good news, and it also explains why the VLC-git AUR package recently began pulling version 4.0.0 when downloading the git info.

              No, Debian 9. But thanks for the tip, I'll look into it.

                According to the VLC dev information, the 3.0 release is being held up by crashes and regressions. They have about 30 open issues left to fix at this time. I'd like to see them hold off releasing it until it can work properly with the upcoming FFMPEG 3.5, which brings features that people want and need for newer systems.
