    Question Can't load subtitles

    Could somebody help me please? I can't load *.sub subtitles. Thanks!

    What video player do you use? Is that sub file correct?

  3. #3
    I tried KMPlayer, MPlayer and Xine. File should be correct because I have downloaded it from a torrents site. I saw people comments. There is no any comment about bad file.

    Have you tried KPlayer? It has File - Load Subtitles option.

  6. #5
    No, I haven't. But all players I told you have "load subtitles" function.

    Well, I installed KPlayer but it did not help me. I still can not load subtitles.

    Hi, mircea,
    since you are Romanian, maybe the problem is rather with the subtitle encoding.
    I had similar troubles. Possibly the subtitles are there and loaded, but you cannot see them because of wrong encoding. Try these settings in Mplayer:
    1. Preparing the Mplayer:
    Since there aren't as plain settings as with BSPlayer I had to modify the Preferences:
    Video tab:
    Video X11/xv (or what else your system supports. I have Nvidia Vanta 16MB)
    Enable double buffering
    Subtitle tab:
    Encoding : iso8859-2 (or your region, I dont know where is the Romanian belonging)
    No autoscale
    Encoding: Unicode
    Blur: 0.00
    Outline : 6
    Text scale: 25 (or more)
    On such a way your subtitle shall be readable.
    If you need a CD/DVD catalogizer, give a try to my program:

    Please post the output of

    mplayer -v -sub mircea2712.sub mircea2712.avi

    replacing your nick with the actual subtitle and movie file names of course.
