Japanese with English subtitles WMP 10?

Discussion in 'Windows Media Player' started by Kinda sick of technology., Nov 30, 2005.

  1. So I want to watch anime in japanese with english subtitles. I know it HAS
    subtitles because I can watch it on another DVD player with subtitles. But
    clicking english subtitles in the disc menu, clicking english subtitles in
    the play menu, and turning on show local captions in the tools/options menu
    did not work either. What to do? I need help!

  2. It looks like you might need FFDShow from Sourceforge :
    http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=53761#files

    It's a set of filters for playing video, but also includes subtitle
    support. The subtitles on DVDs are usually a stream of pictures of
    text rather than text itself, and I think the subtitles & captions
    part of WMP only deals with text subtitles. F

    FDShow should allow the player to overlay the subtitle 'pictures' onto
    the video.

    HTH
