DOES ANYONE WITH AN INTEL MAC KNOW HOW I CAN WATCH MOVIES WITH SUBTITLES PLEASE?
im trying to watch a movie with subtitles on an intel mac
its a question raised a lot in this thread
and have followed all leads with no success!
damn these macs, theyre like spoilt children
so i tried bsplayer, WMP9, quicktime, WMV, and another one
and none work. i.e. either not intelmac compatible or cant get them to play movie plus subtitles.
have tried copying same file names for .avi and .sub too
CAN ANYONE HELP?
Just wanted to add that you can use Windows Media Player with subtitles. You just need a filter called DirectVobSub.
Works with Player 10 anyway. Follow rest of advice in this forum and you’ll be fine.
I bought a movie called Love me if you dare or Jeux d’enfants in French and the movie itself didn’t come with subtitles, I can’t add any onto the dvd either, I have subtitles from several different sources but they won’t play with the actual movie. Can anyone help me?
i was playing a dvd file that i just bought..
i played it with wmpc..n i tries to load a subtitle that i downloaded ...
but when i clicked on load subtitle..there’s a msg appearing...
“to load subtitles you have to change the video renderer type and reopen the file...etc”
what can i do??
Get Windows Media Player(WMP) 12. Then follow the instructions.
To watch DivX/XviD movies with subtitles you first need to install a DirectShow filter for Windows Media Player which is called DirectVobSub. To install DirectVobSub, follow these easy steps:
1) Download DirectVobSub from
2) Run the exe-file to start the installation
After you’ve installed DirectVobSub on your system, Windows Media Player should be able to show subtitles in DivX and XviD movies. However, you will also need to download a separate subtitle file before you get subtitles in a movie. Once you’ve downloaded a subtitle for a movie you simply place it in the same folder as the DivX or XviD movie you want to watch. Then you have to make sure the filename of the movie and subtitle is the same. Otherwise you will have to rename the subtitle file, so the player understands that they are associated. Also make sure that the subtitle file has the ".sub” or ".srt” file-extension. Finally, you play the movie and hopefully you have subtitles in it.
I have a question in regards to burning subtitles unto a DVD along with a movie.
I have many movies that I am converting from avi to DVD, most of which are foreign. Is there any way that I can incorporate the seperate .sub files into the movie, perhaps just adding the file unto the DVD before burning, or do I have to do something special?
My Windows Media Player(WMP) on my desktop is Version 9, it can play 2 separate files (movie & subtitles) together, but the WMP on my laptop is version 11, and it can’t play the 2 separate files together, so i guess it has something to do with the WMP version=)
Nah, not BUT separately. ARE separate.
Subtitles are always separate IF they’re not hardcoded into the films from the beginning.
First - install a media player capable of playing subtitles, not all do (Windows Media Player is one that doesn’t!). One that does IS BSPlayer:
Basically, just install BSPlayer, then put the .sub file in the same directory/folder which your video/movie file is in. Now open BSPlayer and enable subtitles.
Also make sure your .sub file has the same name as your video/movie file. BSPlayer itself pretty much has other hints & tips for this.
Thank you sooooooo much. I don’t know much about computers at all and this program was so easy to use. Just click subtitles, search for subtitles online and it magically finds them in many different languages to choose from. Brill. Now I can watch loads of films from all over the world. Thanks again for the info Frightfo0. :)
hey every one i have a problem im watching kill bill i downloaded in 720 p and everything plays well i just dont get subtitles during the japanese parts why is this and is there a way i can fix this or is it cause of the torrent itself
if you can help send info to firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is a new service that will automatically rename the found subtitles to match with movie’s file, http://www.fsubs.com, give it a try you just need to enter the movie’s filename and will rename the selected subtitle to match it
I use TVersity to stream my downloaded movies to my XBox360 I renamed my subtitle file to match the movie but it still wont show up. Is there something that I have to do to get the subtitles to come up? It is a .srt file
