I use gomplayer and it plays anything and doesnt mess with your system like mplayer does [reset associations] and it plays an avi and srt if in the same folder just fine.I play all my divx-xvid-dvd etc. with it.
use gomplayer-freeware-get it at freewarefiles.com-I use it to play all my divx/avi/xvid. If the srt file is in the same directory it will be played with the avi file. Then u dont have to mess around with a bunch of cdecs and filters if u aren’t a geek-gomplayer comes loaded with all u need and it doesnt change associations like 'mplayer' does so it doesnt mess with ur sytem.
hey just dl bsplayer and play your srt file =)
I have tried playing avi files with .srt subtitles on my Mac (OS X) using cellulo, but a bizarre problem occurs; the subtitles are surrounded by html. For example “it was a dark and stormy night” would appear as "<font=h11111>it was a dark and stormy night</font>". Any ideas as to how I can fix this? Thanks!
sir is the subtitle creation is the automatic software or i need to type the text at every scene.what will be the total time for creating .srt file for particular .avi file. And what will the total time for creating subtitles for one movie with that software
For all who had trouble playing SRT files.
I use BS Player.
As previous advice,keep both files in same folder.
What i would like to know is how to encode the file to VOBS
(at present i use convertX to dvd)but to play subs on screen as the movie is korean & i don’t speak the lingo.
Can anybody help?
lol i agree :)
you need to install vobsub for any media players to recognise subtitle files:
important-make sure the subtitle file (srt, sub or whatever) you are using for your movie is named the same: eg, for an '.srt' subtitle file, the movie 'supergirl 2.avi' will only work with it if the subtitle file is named 'supergirl 2.srt'
if the above link doesnt work, heres the official webpage:
Vobsub is simply a 'VSFilter.dll' file (latest version is 2.37) you must place in your windows directory for your movies to work with subtitles.
1) Use WinRAR or 7z to unzip the VSFilter 7z file you download. After unzipping you will see 2 folders, “Release” and “Release Unicode”.
Win9x/ME uses the file from the “Release” folder, which you should cut and paste into C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\
WinNT/2K uses the file from trhe “Release Unicode” folder, which should go here C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\
WinXP also uses the same vsfilter file from the “Release Unicode” folder, which you should put into C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\
only cut and paste the chosen single file into windows as shown above, do not include the folder!
2) Go to Start --> Run, and type: regsvr32 vsfilter.dll
3) Click OK, and then OK again when it says “DllRegisterServer in vsfilter.dll succeeded."
How to uninstall DVobSub:
1) Go to Start --> Run, and type: regsvr32 /u vsfilter.dll
2) Click OK and OK again when it says “DllUnregisterServer in vsfilter.dll succeeded."
ps you may need to change the options of the video player you use, to enable and view subtitles, for example- in VLC player (recommended) you must switch on subtitles, and even needs you to select the subtitle file you want to use. some players may play the subtitles automatically if they are simply in the same folder, but not all will do this
Holy shit, I finally found something that would work for me *sighs* I looked at all the other stuff people put on here and either it didn’t work om my comp or I’m just not very computer savvy. Looking on another site, I found they suggested a player called BSPlayer (http://www.bsplayer.org). You just open it in the player, the menu *already* has an option that says “load subtitles”, so you just load srt file that came with movie and ta dah, my f-ing movie was finally playing subtitles --__-- all this other stuff was just confusing me. I also was having problems getting my Final Fantasy movie to play, this is lot simpler for those (like me) who might not get all those other suggestions. Thanks to others that tried though! And sorry if for some reason it doesn’t work though, I know how frustrating that can be.
Also, I just noticed BSplayer was already posted here, my bad, but I honestly didn’t read through ALL the posts, so don’t yell at me :-)! And I have VLC but it just wasn’t working for me, though it usually does for everything else...
Hey everyone, I see that many of you like to use the VLC media player, and it is possible for you to get an SRT file working with it. Just go to File>Open File... then find and input your avi in the Open: field then check the subtitles box and select that file for that field. Then press OK and it works.
