I looked for an answer but I dont find one.

On Apple TV you can by press and hold the Play button select the subtitle.


Is it possible to turn on and off subtitles from the iTunes Playing (only on my Mac, without a Apple TV)?

I have a Apple Remote and the Remote App for iPhone and iPad. I couldn find a possibility.




Mac mini, Mac OS X (10.7.2), iTunes 10.5.1

    From the iTunes Help file:

    Use subtitles and alternative audio tracks

    Some videos feature subtitles, closed captioning, and alternative audio tracks (in other languages, for example).

    Here are ways to use subtitles and alternative audio tracks:

    • To change the default language used for subtitles and audio, choose iTunes > Preferences, click Playback, and choose a language from the Audio Language and Subtitle Language pop-up menus.
    • To turn closed captioning on or off, choose iTunes > Preferences, click Playback, and select “Show closed captioning when available.”
    • To change settings while you’re playing a movie in iTunes, choose Controls > Audio & Subtitles > Option.
    • To quickly turn subtitles on or off while a movie is playing, move the pointer over the movie until the controls appear, and then click the Subtitles button Subtitles icon.


    There's no mention of using a remote.
