    Windows media player subtitles

    I have a problem with windows media player 11 (running on Windows Vista Home
    Premium). It cannot read subtitles... Can you PLEASE provide me with a link
    to a group of codecs (or other meanings of solving this problem) that can
    solve my problem? Some help will do a HUGE good to me and I will apreciate it
    very much.

    What type of subtitles? WMP only natively supports SAMI. If you're using
    SUB or other extension, you'd need a custom file filter for that. Since you
    didn't mention which specific subtitle format it was, we'd all have to
    guess. =)

    Yes... as you undoubtfully guessed, I want it to read *.srt and *.sub files.
    Can you please give me some advice about it? Thanks anyway for your help.

    I don't track SRT or SUB file filters and so couldn't provide
    recommendations there. If you do a quick search, you should find various
    answers. =)
