You should use the configuration option to set the Text settings at the Main tab correctly. Press the button where Arial appears. The style Editor window will then be displayed.
Click now on the second button below the font (showing default) and change it to Hebrew (177) then click Apply at the bottom and you are done.Good luck!
Hopefully this will be fixed in future releases..
Actually after looking closer it seems to be subtitle format related and not filename, for some reason most subtitles work fine if they are in .srt format.
They are also loaded in .sub format but display only temporarily if the display is refreshed. Weird to say the least. Using win7 mediaplayer & MCE (tested x64 & x86).
Doh! I was really surprised WMP still didn't support SUB/SRT subtitle files out of the box.
I tried "everything" and finally gave up. Downloaded VLC video player and it supported subtitles out of the box. It would have been OK for me except that subtitle fonts looked a bit ugly and blocky when a video was in full screen mode. I guess I could have tweaked it somehow to look better but I was just looking for a solution, not tweaks.
Then I came across DirectVobSub 2.40.x 32bit version (WMP in 64bit Windows7 is by default 32bit application. Weird, I know). Installed DirectVobSub, launched WMP and voila! Nice looking subtitles out of the box. That's what I call a solution.
Thx DirectVobSub developers. You have done something MS should learn from you.
You make it sound so easy. =o) I have Windows7 64-bit HomePremium OS as well as Windows Media Player (version 12). Downloaded DirectVobSub-2.40.3093_x64 which didnt work and then I read your review about WMP being 32 bit by default (which is why Im replying to you).
I uninstalled the above mentioned version and installed vsfilter.2.39_nt instead (since I figured I dont know what Im doing so Ill let the installer do it).Under my Program Files (x86) there is a folder called DirectVobSub and within that folder are only two things. An uninstall.exe and a vsfilter.dll file.
Is the vsfilter.dll file supposed to be placed somewhere else? If so, could you please tell me where? I got lost reading the help guides.Your prompt response and help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
I Installed a pack of codecs and it had the new version and didn't work ...
So i Instaled the 2.39 version and it works like a charm ...
Hopefully, They can resolve this minor issue ...
Because if I have to upgrade the pack it means that all codecs will be updated and running, but if thios doesn't, I have to install a older version, which $uck$, but it's the only way ..
Thre's anyway we could contact the developer ?
I get a syntax error on line 42.
Hi, how did you make it run with PDVD 10 ? I have win 7 x64 and tried the Always load option in DirectVobSub and what it does is:it appears for a very brief period in the notification area of the taskbar and then disappears. Of course, the movie doesnt show any subtitle (its an AVI file with a SUB extension, if it makes any difference).
I have the same problem in PowerDVD 11.Thanks in advance,James.
Which exactly is the NT version? I have windows 7 which should I download?
First link ;)
