Hi !

Most of the time i'm playing DivX/XviD movies with .srt/.sub's over 802.1b/g and my only choice is VLC thanks to it's customizable file-access cache.
With 5 seconds of cache there are no risk of stuttering due to
the quite long wireless distance..

However, VLC subtitle support is not as good as BSplayer which i also would like to use with 802.1b/g - but there are no cache option in
BSplayer :(

See (http://forum.bsplayer.org/viewtopic.php?t=2510&highlight=cache)

Anyone with a clue on how to get some kind of read-ahead caching player
with the features of both VLC and/or BSplayer ?

Regards

I use Crystal Player from http://www.crystalplayer.com , there is a free version which is sufficient for most needs.

It has a configurable cache which depends on your physical memory, and subtitle supports. However I have found it does not handle vobsub properly when there are multiple languages (all languages are displayed at once). For this reason I disable internal subtitle support and use vsfilter instead (you need to disable the "use shortest filter path" option)
