How to display subtitle with a video file?
In case you are lazy to read the long introduction about Vobsub, I will brief you a little bit about it.
VOBSUB is a filter for Media Player that can load subtitles (ssa, sub, srt, vobsub, …) into movies being played.
VobSub will works with ALL video players.
There are two kinds of subtitle formats which the vobsub package can deal with:
1. vobsub ripped: idx/sub[/rar]
2. textual: srt, sub, psb, smi, ssa, ass
A better tutorial about VobSub installation.
NOTE: The custom installation doesn’t include the Virtualdub, Aviuntil, Text for VirtulDub and AviSync plugins. If you want to install them as well, you must choose “full install“.
Virtualdub is the software to support this plugin, therefore you must install this software as well.
Basically there is not much settings to configure in Vobsub. Timing is the only one you should take note on it. If your subtitle is played too slow, set your subtitle timing to negative(-1 to -9999) and vice versa.
About subtitle file:
If you have a subtitle file(*.srt), you must remember to put it in same directory as the video you’re going to watch.
After that, rename your subtitle file to the same name as your video file.
For example, if your video file name is LostS0610.avi, then your subtitle file name must be LostS0610.srt.
After rename your files, run the video file by your default software, the subtitles will be displayed automatically.
