Join Subtitles to Files... Without the need of transcoding.

Hi guys! I got a problem... I need to join subtitles so it can be displayed on the 360 while using Media Center.

No, transcoding is not an option. I just want the Media Center detect my .srt files while playing .mkv files.


Any ideas? Thanks

Please note that on Windows 7, both Windows Media Player and Media Center make use of the Windows Media Foundation (WMF) framework instead of DirectShow for playing certain file types. As a result, DirectShow subtitle filters like DirectVobSub are not used.

WMF is used for the following file types: MPEG, WMV, MP4, MOV, M2TS. For other file formats, such as AVI and MKV, the Microsoft players are (in most cases) able to display subtitles.
You can download a third party software and check if it helps. Search using your favorite search engine for more information.
Note: Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the use of Third Party Software can be solved. Using Third Party Software is at your own risk.
