you have to have subtitles enabled in ffdshow...

also some codecs are built right in WMP so you can use MPC-homemedia x64

(windows now has OOBE x64 codecs )

Oh those toolbars don't work because you don't need them! All modern browsers including searching already! Microsoft got smart and made Windows7 reject all that crap-ware that is toolbars. :P
