// Pictures

On a Chromecast:
Rotate, zoom and pan pictures easily from the "Now playing" screen, touch the
button with the four arrows.


// Subtitles

Subtitles work with Chromecast and Apple TV 4:
- Use the Opensubtitles.org integration
- Touch a subtitle file after you started a video
Subtitles in the same folder are added automatically.
You can set a subtitle folder which will be searched.
Subtitle timing, font, background and color can be changed.
Subtitle encoding in the settings: e.g. for arabic subtitles choose UTF-8
Some DLNA servers add information about subtitles, some don't.


// Wireless headphones (beta)

Touch "Route audio to phone" on the "Now playing" screen, to stream the sound to your phone.
It's impossible to sync this automatically and network delays make it hard.
This feature is in beta: it might work most of the time.
