Windows 7: .MP4 Not showing subtitles in WMP 12

.MP4 Not showing subtitles in WMP 12

I have been fiddling around with codec packs and finally found 1 that is ideal for me (Codec Pack All in 1 1.6.3)

Everything works perfectly except for mkv thumbnails which I found another way around it by installing Icaros 2.0

The only problem remaining is that .mp4 files are not able to display subtitles in WMP 12, they work perfectly well in VLC but for aesthetic reasons I prefer WMP.

Is there anyway to make this work with some sort of registry tweak without having to install additional codec packs such as Shark 007 which even though it states to work without any mess, it ruins all my file types associations and subtitle display.

SO to summarize I am looking for a registry hack that can force WMP 12 on WIN7 x64 show subtitles

There is no registry hack that is going to make this happen for you. The codecpack you are using is over 6 yrs old. Uninstall that archaic codecpack and Icaros (Icaros is developed on my forum) before installing the Shark007 codecs (which include Icaros).

It is quite simple to acheive the results you seek. You just have to read a bit.

When you 1st install the Shark007 codecs, you are taken to a Setup and usage page.
This page has all of your answers for anything playback related.
For your specific issue, look for the section beginning with "If an MP4 file fails to play properly"
