I know that subtitles muxed into mpeg file are played only on standalones, and I have no problem with that (there was with position but I solved this out).
My question is, why they can't be played on PC. Is there any reason that sofware players can't play them?

I think it was on "How to" by GRF, and in fact I can't watch them on PowerDVD

EDIT: This is the link. Scroll to the very end.

Hi guys,
In fact I backup Hydeus on this one because I've seen this written all over the web too. Search for it here at kvcd or at vcdhelp or other sites and you'll see you'll find it too.
And the problem is that WinDVD & PowerDVD don't show these subs at all when I try.
So I never thought these were supposed to show subs because I had already read that it was impossible, for either svcd or dvd.
So tell us about your subs experience, Phil.
Should we be able to see those subs or only the hard encoded ones with vobsub?
Cheers

I will retest this because for the moment I'm not sure. I didn't do selectable subtitles on my SVCD because my standalone do not support them. So my memories are on test I did years ago.

I'll tell you.

Isn't it something to do with, you can't have Subtitles AND PBC on at the same time

So we have nothing new. Subtitles are PC-unwatchable. Sad

Hi Hydeus,
As far as I am aware, you're right.
In fact those days I didn't tested it much as SO MANY people was saying that it couldn't be done.
I'm over the SVCD era now that I moved to KDVD where we have switchable subs.
Haven't you done the same, yet?
Cheers

Hello guys, I know that this thread started in Feb. But as I was reading through the thread< I saw that it ended with the notion that pc's cant play subtitles.

He is once again correct; I watch movies that have subtitles all the time on my pc. You have to have a subtitle filter installed which should come with the latest version of PowerDVD, WMV player, or whatever app you use to watch your movies. If you have a sub filter installed and the subs are merged with you dvd movie, avi, or mpeg file, just load and it should play fine. If you have your avi or mpeg file serperate from your sub, just name the sub file with the same name as your avi or mpeg file and put them into the same folder (movie file name= my movie, sub name= my movie). Then open the movie using your desired player (I personally use WMP and PowerDVD) and the player will know to load both the files and the subs should show up in the movie

Once again, I know this thread started in Feb. and if you've already found answer, great; I just thought I could help, thats all.

I think they was talking about muxed subtitles. This ones are multiplexed together with audio and video streams in mpeg2 files. This kind of subtitles only can be managed by standalones or by vlc player as i know. Maybe in last time another software could be reach this ability.
