Man, today has been a test of my patience, however. Snagged a Japanese horror flick last night, and it DL'ed just fine, subtitle file and all. Video and subtitle files in exactly the same formats as the Chinese horror comedy I got a couple days ago, which all worked fine (surprisingly) in WMP...but this one will not display the picture. subtitles coming through fine, but no picture. In fact, the only thing I can get it to display in is DivX Player 2.1, which doesn't support subtitles (Christ, I wish they'd update that!). ANy other player, I can get subtitles, but no pic, so what am I to do?
After attempting many little fixes, I find a small program that has saved my sanity. All it does it loads a subtitle file and display them on a black band on the screen...nothing else. So, it's a little tricky getting it running at exactly the same time as the movie, but at least I can do it. Yay me...and now, off to watch some Japanese Schoolgirl Zombie goodness!
