Problems with vsfilter (CCCP) displaying subtitles on matroska video files


I'm actually having 2 problems with CCCP's vsfilter but one, I think, it's probably due to a bug in the version that CCCP is using in it's package cause the I downloaded vsfilter from it's homepage and this problem was gone. And I'm talking about "vertical padding" so I can display subtitles below the video. The vsfilter version that comes with CCCP, if I change the "vertical padding" option to anything besides "original height", any video file won't play. This doesn't happen with the version I downloaded from the vsfilter's homepage. Anyone has any idea why?

Anyway, to my most important problem...

I can't play any matroska video file with subtitles, they are simply not loaded, the vsfilter green arrow doesn't even show up.

What I can tell you:
  • I have enabled the "autoload vsfilter" option in Haali Media Splitter.
  • The subtitle (srt) file has the exact same name as the matroska (mkv) file except for the extension of course.
  • I'm using CoreAVC instead of ffdshow's internal decoder.
  • Vsfilter is correctly working with avi files (I only tested xvid ones).
  • I'm using Media Center as player but I've been testing video playback on Windows Media Player.

Any help is appreciated...

And by the

Haali splitter can only handle SRT subs INSIDE the MKV, as a subtitles stream, not load external SRT subtitles files AFAIK ....

Extend to 4:3 is be broken in the VSFilter code in MPC-HC repository. Works ok with the Guliverkli2 builds.
MPC-HC 2.3.0
