Movies with subtitles

Post#1 » Tue Jul 10, 2012 5:28 pm

I downloaded a movie last night and copied and pasted it onto a usb to play thru my surround sound onto the tv. It played ok but the subtitles were missing. When I played it thru VLC on my computer the subs were there. any help would be greatly appreciated, and please be kind (:| I am new to this.
Maybe I should mention the file was in .mkv format
Thank you all for your amazing work

They are not Hard Coded Subs

Meaning that the subs are a separate file with-in the file ;)

you will have to re-encode the file and make them hard coded subs.

Try searching the interwebs ;)

or hook your tv to you computer (yes)

Thanks so much (talk)
I did mention I was new to this didn't I? I googled "intrawebs" here is what I found



A sarcastic term for the internet. Often used in the context of parody regarding an inexperience, unskilled, or incoherent user.

Hay guys, I'm using teh interweb!!!
:lol:
Seriously tho
my tv doesnt have a HMDI port, only the regular jacks "red, white and yello". I bought the special adaptor for this and couldnt get it to work, if you could help with that I would really appreciate it.
Hope you dont mind the PM.


Way say ?

Plenty of people here can help just make your ?'s and Info detailed ;)

Sorry, have been on alot of sites that get kinda upset if you have what looks like a conversation in the forum :( .
So as I said in the PM. I bought the special adapter to hook the tv ( no HDMI output only regular " jack outputs") up to the computer and it didnt work. Would very much appreciate any help with this, cause I dont have cable and depend on sites like this to keep up with my favorite shows.


Thanks again

I think what you are seeing is soft subs.

They are part of the video file, but don't show up unless a program that can display subs is used.

Your TV may not be able to use them on it's own.

as far as getting your computer hooked up to display on your TV..

1- What video card do you have?

2- What connections is your TV capable of?

3- The adapter you bought, is it specific to your card or something else?
Now I've got a link... What the hell do I do with it?

Considering helping us find links? Please read this!

I am not sure what kind of video card I have in my computer. The TV that I have has only hook ups for jacks (red, white and yellow) the adapter that I bought is to plug into the USB port of my computer and to then hook up the jacks to the other end and then into the TV.

From your start orb, select "run". Type in "dxdiag"(without quotes). Click the display tab.

I'm thinking this is a input cable for say a camcorder.

You will need a VGA/HMDI/DVI depending on your computers output ?
To NTSC RED/YELLOW/WHITE RCA jacks Converter ;)

But before I spent money on something like this I would just go buy a cheap Flat screen and hook direct to it. They are cheap now.
Spending money on making old stuff work is a waste IMO.

Or buy a new Blue-ray player/ DVD-player with HDMI/USB connections Wifi capable if you have Wifi and play it through it from the computer.

So many options ;)
