Hi:confused:

I have made a DivX file of a movie I have at home. I bought it when I was in London and was thrilled when I saw that someone has gone through the pain to translate it into Swedish for me.
The .srt file that I downloaded works perfect on my pc (playing it in VLC media) but when I try to watch it on TV I get the "timecodes" instead of the actual text. What have I done wrong and what can I do to correct this

Thanks for your time in advance :thanks:

Hi!

Sounds like your standalone player requires a different subtitle format. The player's documentation undoubtedly provides the required information...

Try to load the subtitle file in Subtitle workshop and save it from there as SubRip.

enjoy,

Sory Setarip. It's working on another avi in me TViX M5000A and the player undoubtedly supports .srt files. I should have stated that (sorry)

The other avi I have works flawlessly in my other player. I ll download SUb workshoP and check it out. I might need
help with the program though since I am a total newb :-( (sorry for that)

Hiya Mtz

I just want to thank you for that little tip :thanks: and
for your time.

Subtitle workshop worked perfectly and I can now enjoy my
old avi file with text in my language :)

Cheers

Glad to hear you've resolved your dilemma!

I'm curious to know if you've determined why other .SRT format files played properly, while this one didn't

Not a clue setarip. I Loaded several .srt files in "Subtitle Workshop" to compare setup and where timecodes were placed etc. I haven't used the prog before so I have probably missed something but once I saved the text as "subrip" and loaded that .srt file into my TViX HD Player, the actual text showed up instead of the timecode. Call it "fluke" or "magic" :) I really can't understand. Maybee Mtz can explain as to why this is ? I just really happy that I can watch my old movie :)

ps. LOVELY PROGRAM "Subt Workshop" though. I am amazed. It will take a while to get to know it but I am prepared to study cause it seems to be able to do just about anything you want :-) ds
