I downloaded and installed DirectVobSub and renamed the srt file to be excatly as the movie name except for the file name endings, srt and avi, and had them in the same folder and my Media Player Classic started to show the subtitles automatically with the movie :)
Thank you for the help :)
So i downloaded and installed directvobsub. I have both avi and srt files together, and i tried playing my movie on wmp but the subtitles still didnt show. I read that directvobsub works with wmp, but to be safe i tried downloading mplayer, but i didnt know how to install it. ahh please help!
Yeah, I just spent the last two hours messing around with mplayer and assorted files, and I can’t get it to work. All so called “readme” files are completely worthless, and then they send you to a bunch of websites with help but it’s pretty much all for Linux, then i finally managed to find one specifically for Windows users, you know, the 95% of all PC users... Anyway, the windows FAQ/helper thing was completely worthless, and now I have something called mingw and MSYS installed... I’m not incompetent with computers, but I’m also not a Linux geek. A comprehensive, step-by-step walkthrough of how to get mplayer to work on windows would be very much appreciated!!
1. Go to this link:
2. Click on the “1) Download DirectVobSub” link. Download the file and install it.
3. Place the .avi and .srt files together in one folder.
4. Open the .avi file with a media player (I use VLC).
5. Right-clik and go to subtitle tracks and click on the subtitle track that applies (what language you want to see the subtitles in).
Enjoy your video. :)
I downloaded the latest Jet Li movie from Easynews. I started to play it after unwrapping it and noted that the subtitles were in Dutch or something. I got around this problem by noting that the files came with two .srt files.
(.srt handling subtitles of course) One for Dutch and one for English. I deleted the former and this time the English subtitles kicked in. When downloding the .rar files if you see a text file it can mention which .srt files are included. Good luck!
hey guys, so it looks like you can view these files together.
but is there a way you can burn them to a dvd? I’ve got a korean movie with an srt file, the english dub file (it’s an mp3) AND the avi movie file.
> ok..i have avi and srt file together..I try playing it

> WANT TO WATCH MY DAMN MOVIE!!!!
If you want it that bad, buy the damn movie. Jeez, you give people something and they bitch because they have to do a little homework. Why not try asking instead of demanding?

hi i downloaded the Directvobsub but whe n i play the movie no sub is there any setting i thought you mention automatic sub can you tell me i have srt file in the same folder i am using dvix player but subtitles is grayed out or do i need to use another media player to view this
I’ve got an odd problem with my VLC player with SRT files. I’m running the latest relase, and it will autodetect the SRT file, but only if the filename is less than 8 chars long.
So for example, syriana.avi works fine with syriana.srt, but DaVinciCode.avi will not work with DaVinciCode.srt.
However, if I go into file/open file and manually add the avi file and srt file, it will play them fine.
Anyone got any ideas on this one?
