how do I play avi and srt files together? What player do I need to get for a mac. also Vlc is a good player for playing avi files. You can get it from here: reply

just keep the srt file together in the same folder as your avi file, then download mplayer and mencoder from here

the mencoder comes with the mplayer if you want to encode movies

to display the subtitles download Directvobsub and install, it will automatically load the srt file into you player when you view your movie file. reply

How do I do it on a Mac ? Or do the same instuctions apply, I am on OSX and use MPlayer reply

Moonwatcher................Thanks very much for the information.........I just installed DirectVobSub and there were the subs for 'A Very Long Engagement ' right there, after trying for ages.

Thanks again. reply

Thank you also moonwatcher for the great information. I succesfully got subs working. I found this thread via google. You’ve been a great help thanks :) reply

As above, thanks for the information. I didn`t know how to install .dll files previously and I noticed there was a how to guide there too. Thank you. reply

So...umm...yeah...How do you view srt files on a MAC? Those programs looked like they were for windows reply

For Macs, you can download a player called Cellulo at (if u use OSX). Just keep the srt file and the movie file in the same folder. when you go to include a movie into the library (COmmand + O) highlight both files. Cellulo then plays the movie with the SRT file. It’s not as pretty as it would be on a windows, but it works... reply

Am also looking for a way to play .srt files together with .avi. On a mac osx 10.4.2 that is. I normally use VLC, but after hearing u all i intalled MplayerOSX. Then on to Cellulo. Cellulo however immediately crashes after opening... The cellulo forum ia not open for a question or help.
Dear Strange.r, apparently u got it to work. Any hints?
Any other ways to watch .srt subs in .avi on a mac?

thanx, Ingeborg reply

Cellulo or whatever it’s called also didn’t work for me and I couldn’t find any info on it. I did find out that you can encode srt files into something different that VLC does recognize but I’m still working on that, does any one else know? reply

OK.. FFmpegX will allow you to preview the video file with the subtitles and you can also export them together into another format... The only trouble I had (which is kind-of stupid) is that when all the extra requirments are downloaded for ffmpegx and you go to install an error message comes up saying it can’t find the file in Library to copy to... so I just made the file Library/ffmpegx and and it installed perfectly. reply

Ok I did all that and had High hopes when doing so. Ans then u end up at a serial number entry... I hate it when I must buy before even knowing if it works for me... What did u do?
Maybe send me an e-mail, Kola?

thanx, Ingeborg reply

hey moonwatcher,
if you are reading this post, thanks for the information. i managed to view movies with subtitles after downloading Directvobsub.

However i’m not so successful with using mencoder to encode the subtitles into the movie.
i used the link u supplied but am not sure how to use the MeWiG program. wondering if u help me with that bit

cheers reply

On a mac using VLC go to preferences and deselect 'automatically detect subtitle files' and then choose the subtitle file to be played with the movie using the 'browse' button. It’s not automatic but it works! reply

it works.... and so simple! thanx a 1.000.000 reply

thank you so much rubytu!

i was going crazy i couldn’t see advent children withouth subtitles, but thx to you i found it (the rest didn’t work, and i didn’t like installing 10,000 encoders =) ) reply

after i installed the vobsub the movie wont play at all so you know why? reply

09-13-2005 04:26 PM

^^;; I feel like a dumbass =( how do you download MPlayer? I mean where in the file can i get to the folder that I can install? I’ve got the download, but I can’t find the installation... is there even a installation? lol see? dumbass. =( reply

Yeah, I just spent the last two hours messing around with mplayer and assorted files, and I can’t get it to work. All so called “readme” files are completely worthless, and then they send you to a bunch of websites with help but it’s pretty much all for Linux, then i finally managed to find one specifically for Windows users, you know, the 95% of all PC users... Anyway, the windows FAQ/helper thing was completely worthless, and now I have something called mingw and MSYS installed... I’m not incompetent with computers, but I’m also not a Linux geek. A comprehensive, step-by-step walkthrough of how to get mplayer to work on windows would be very much appreciated!! reply
