Do you still use vlc? So double click on the vlc player, choose the movie, e then choose the legend. After you selected the legend, click on “advanced” just above the blank of the legend, then change the encoding of it. I use the JAVA encoding, you need to check the “active legend file”. reply

Easiest way is to just drag the subtitle file (.srt) onto the VLC screen itself as the movie is playing...simple reply

Copy your subtitle file in the same directory of your movie file. Make sure both the subtitle file and the movie file have the same name (leave the extension off). Then play the movie with VLC and it should automatically show the subtitles reply

I have the latest VLC version 0.9.9 for Windows. SRT titles play, but only the times show up. For example of the SRT line set:

1
0:00:05.000 --> 0:00:08.500
Hi, how are you?

What shows up on screen is “000 --> 0:00:08.500”

Same thing happens on the Mac version. Subtitles work fine in Media Player Classic and in Windows media Player through VOB Sub.

Any ideas? reply

@rrobin
The problem is that the wrong decimal delimiter is used in the srt-file, a dot instead of a comma.
Your first line
0:00:05.000 — > 0:00:08.500
should read
0:00:05,000 — > 0:00:08,500

6.c. browse and select your subtitle file
7.c. play below

My problem is that VLC will move some words to a separate line, as in:

VLC will display
some
words in a separate line.

This poses a problem, as there are some 40 to 50 people viewing the AVI, and it is distracting. There are no hidden charaters, it displays properly in Subtitles Workshop, and I can not easily get around it. I can not predict when it will happen, some long lines display great. (These are long lectures, so there are 500 lines or more for me to sort through. HELP!) reply

How to burn a DVD with an AVI file with .srt subs? As far as I know, Toast doesn’t recognize the srt file as a subs file. Neither does Iskysoft software. Suggestions really appreciated! Thanks. reply

@fucker:
At step 6 above, while browsing for a subtitles file, in the option 'File of type' below, select “All Files(*). Then only it will show your subtitled downloaded or attached file. reply

If you have VLC Version 0.9.8 or higher you just select VIDEO in top menu. Then select SUBTITLES TRACK. It will automatically be set to DISABLE. Just change to the track you need.

It’s that easy. reply
