Enable (.srt) on Samsung TV from Linkstation NAS

I’ve recently bought a 2TB Buffalo NAS – Linkstation Pro Duo. Loving it so far until I ran into a problem on streaming mp4 videos to my Samsung TV Series 6. I had no issues playing the mp4 video however I was so disappointed I couldn’t enable the subtitle (.srt). I’ve googled around and i kept reading solution to make the mp4 and srt filename identical or omit space on the filenames. i’ve followed the suggestions but still … the subtitle wouldn’t come out on the screen. I’m beginning to feel pissed and after a few more hours luckily a friend from Facebook advised me to try renaming the mp4 to “mpg”. and to my surprised it worked!!! If you are reading this post, you might be in the same boat as me. Try it now!
