Windows 7: WMP does not show subtitles

06 Aug 2011   #1

Windows 7 starter 32bit
WMP does not show subtitles

I have a brand new PC (Home made) dated from 21 june this year.
I use w7 Ultimate 64 bits.
Now my problem:
My WMP since a few weeks ago does nor show subtitles anymore. I can see them in others player such as BS Player and WM Classic.
What can I do to have my subtitles back?

Windows 8.1 ; Windows 7 x86 (Dec2008-Jan2013)

Right click in WMP when movie is playing - Lyrics, captions and subtitles - On, if available.

If we are talking about non-DVD subtitles, Windows Media Player doesn't support playing SRT subtitles by default.
However, you can install DirectVobSub add-on. More info.


May be this codec got corrupted on your computer, reinstall should help.
