Viewing external Subtitles in WMP12 / 7MC


i am trying to show external subtitles (srt,sub) in my Windows media center\player 12 in WIN7 (in VLC it works)

i am using the WIN7 32BIT, with the latest FFDSHOW INSTALLED
now i understand that the problem is with WMP\WMC 12 loading their default codec which doesnt support sub srt subtitles.

so i tried to changing preferred DirectShow filters in Windows 7 using these:

Resolution: 624Ч352 23.97fps
with an external SRT file
