Hey, I’m having some trouble playing an AVI file with SRT subtitles I downloaded. Usually I just put the srt file in the same folder as the avi, and it plays fine with the DivX player.
For some reason, this time it just won’t work. I’ve tried in VLC player, but no luck. I downloaded VobSub, VSFilter, but none of them are doing the trick. I’ve changed the name of the srt file to the exact same title as the avi file, but still no luck.
Does anyone know what I might be doing wrong?
I have a related problem. I have 2 cd movie, and 1 cd subtitles. When the movie goes to the second cd, I lose the subtitles. If I just open the second cd, add the subtitles, it starts the subtitles over, and I see the subtitles about 50 minutes off, as they start over. I can’t advance them that far, and can’t find 2 cd subtitles. Any ideas? I’ve done subtitles about 50 times, but can’t figure out this problem, other than viewing subs in total and scrolling along with movie, having the movie and the subs in separate screens, minimimized a bit, side by side. A real pain. Basically, I need to advance the subtitles to catch up with the movie but can’t seem to figure it out.
Morons... the Original Poster said they checked the srt filename was the same as the avi, and still you trolls say “make sure the filename of the srt...". Dumbarses. I have this same problem and, HAVE ENSURED FILENAMES are the same, stilll no subtitles. If you don’t know, stay off the web. I am sick of wading through ill-informed and idiotic postings.
I was facing the same problem with my Windows Media Player (Windows 7) and Cyberlink PowerDVD9.
Firstly I installed DirectVobSub2.40 x64 but unsuccesfully.
After that I’ve uninstalled it and installed the former DirectVobSub 2.39 version with installer.
Now, all of them are perfect.
I found that my avchd files would not work with my srt sub files until I converted them to avi you might be having the same problem check you vid file make sure it is avi if it is avi I know that the subs from http://www.allsubs.org/ work as long as you use avi format on your vid files
just do remember to put them in the same folder with same name as vid file
THANK YOU!! You’re the first person to recommend the 2.39 version of DirectVobSub over the 2.41 version, and this solved all my problems. Everyone else just kept repeating “make sure the file names are the same." No shit guys, that’s the first thing I checked... but yes, using the 2.39 version worked perfectly.
