Multimedia: Viewing Subtitles within Windows Media Player

You can use VSFilter to display subtitles in Windows Media Player.
The filter will automatically find and display subtitle files with the same name in the same directory as the video file. Due to Windows Media Player’s lack of support for subtitle files natively, this is overlay filter. It displays subtitles over the video, not in the black bars.

You can access some VSFilter settings in the registry at HKCU\Software\Gabest\VSFilter\.
To display a tray icon with access to DirectVobSub (VSFilter) settings, change the value of the HKCU\Software\Gabest\VSFilter\General\EnabledZPIcon DWORD to 1.

[edit]

Use ffdshow to decode the video, which has VSFilter built-in. Still having trouble? Use VLC or MPlayer which must have their own overlay filter for subtitles (it might be post-processing with VSFilter, but it’ll work fo’ sho’).
