how do you get vlc to display subtitles?

My problem is that I’ve got one file for the film (Silver City), but can only find subtitles for two CDs. How do I get VLC to display BOTH subtitle files, because I obviously can’t use the same name for both files. reply

I also am having trouble seeing subtitles in VLC.

I have tried everything suggested above plus some and still no love! it’s doing my head!!

I thought I was on to something with what MarcC wrote but it still did not work.
Is it possible that I have it set to the wrong subtitle codec, subtitle text encoding or subtitle format? What should these be set to for watching downloaded movies on a Mac via VLC? reply

How do people at TPB put subtitles INSIDE a movie? (i.e, no .srt file, and the subtitles automatically play, and you can disable them from the drop down list.)

I want to know this because the subtitles automatically in AND playing show up on psp.

Thanks! reply

I didn’t read all of this, but, the easiest way, is to name the .srt file to the same thing as the movie file. (Erm.)

Example:

Movie.avi
Movie.srt

VLC should automatically find, and use the subtitle file. reply

PS: The .srt file needs to be in the same directory as the movie file for that to work. (Should be obvious, but, yeah.) reply

I have a MacBook and am thinking of gitnetg a Mini as a media server, so thanks for the useful information!e2€œif you want a Mac Mini and Front Row to run your home theatre, with 5.1 sound from third-party movie files, then ite2€™s not so easy.e2€9dDo you have any more information? It seems very silly that anything working through QuickTime has to be two channels. I was planning on using Front Row too. It doesn’t make much sense though, since the Apple TV effectively runs a Front Row equivalent but can play back 5.1 sound. Any clues? reply
