Your AVI file and srt subtitle file are two separated files.
first of all, you need to add the subtitle file in to the AVI file and then paly it use VLC player, that will be ok.
my .srt subs used to work fine, but tried it in the last few days on an .avi file and can’t get any subtitles to work at all. the file names are the same, i’ve turned them on. getting extremely frustrated as i’ve been looking at all the forums and nothing seems to work.
I can’t make an srt sync up with the play of the avi file. It’s driving me mad. i opened up the srt as a word document, and read that it has the subtitle coming in at 00:04:40 but the dude speaks that line 00:02:51 into the playback of the avi. I checked the ratings on that srt and everyone says it was perfect. so what is going wrong? what am i doing wrong?
I had this problem on my samsung tv and couldn’t work out what was different to the ones that work.
As a guess I tried shortening the filenames (srt and mkv) as I thought the filenames for the file not working was fairly long and it actually fixed the problem. This is the first time I’ve tried it so time will tell if it’s a solution. Certainly worth a try if you are having this problem

DirectVobSub 2.39 was mentioned.
I found it here using StartPage.com:
SourceForge is a safe place for downloads. In fact, this is likely the first place this file was published.
There are no instructions, but they are DLLs - so copy them to C:/Windows/system32 and also to C:/Windows/SysWOW64.
I can finally understand the Spanish in Breaking Bad. : )
Another fine day to slay me a troll. Now for some Google keywords....
VLC VideoLan Subtitles Encoding Working Languages Help
I’m using Windows 8 and made sure both the video and subtitles had the same name except for the ".srt” for subtitles. Still nothing? Is there a code I need? I recently purchased my computer but was needing an answer. On my older pc I never had this problem.
