I downloaded DirectVobSub, installed it, put the avi and the srt in the same folder, double-clicked the avi file to watch it (in windows media player), and....no subtitles. Any idea what the problem is?
For VLC player On a Mac. I loaded the AVI then started then paused the movie then went to Video and select subtitle track and found the subtitle file I wanted to use. I imagine a lot of the problems with previous posts were the difference in operating programs. Hope this helps
I use Powerdvd, Put your video and .srt file in one folder, run through Power dvd, when the video is played, right click on the playing clip, it will show options, go to primary subtitles and click on subpicture. That’s it you can watch your movie with subtitles.
I have the same problem. I’ve used VLC, WMP, MPC, klite codec, changed the settings in media player classic to work with subtitles, downloaded vobsub. Nothing works. There are absolutely no subtitles no matter what I do. I can burn them to a DVD and everything is just fine, but leave it to windows and these crap programs running on windows to not even have the capability of showing subtitles. Give up while you’re ahead, and just use linux. I used my linux system and it works just fine on VLC.
you can play the .srt and .avi/.mkv files together on mac os x together easily using VLC.
1. Play first the video.
2. Click on “video” at the toolbar menu.
3. Click on “subtitles”.
4. Choose “Open File”
5. Browse for that .srt file and click on it.
6. Enjoy your movie with subtitles!
NOTE: No need to name the .srt and .avi/.mkv files with the same names(of course extension will vary).
IT WORKS FOR ME JUST FINE... ^^,
