How to Disable SB Titles in Plex Player

By Sean Hill

Plex Player (also known as Plex Media Center) is home entertainment software for your desktop or mobile device. The program allows users to listen to audio and watch video in a variety of different formats without having to download any third party codecs or add-ons. Plex Player is made for Mac computers, as well as Apple and Android mobile devices. When you are watching video in Plex, you can toggle SB titles (i.e. subtitles) on and off in a couple of different ways -- with a hot key or in a settings menu.

Step 1

Click the "Play" button and hold it for a few seconds until the "On Screen Display" appears. You can also do this step by using the "Play" button on an Apple Remote.
