Many movies, clips, and other video files have built-in subtitles. This property allows you to duplicate the speech recorded on the video in the form of text displayed at the bottom of the screen.
Subtitles can be in several languages, which can be selected in the settings of the video player. Turning subtitles on and off can be useful when learning a language, or when there are problems with sound.
This article will cover how to enable subtitle display in standard Windows Media Player. This program does not need to be installed separately, as it is already integrated into the Windows operating system.
- Immediately you need to download and install on your computer a package of appropriate codecs to view video files with subtitles. It is best to use the well-known assembly of K-lite codecs. If the desired video file is delivered without subtitles, you will have to additionally download them from the Internet, fansubs.ru or subs.com.ru resources are suitable for downloading. Unzip the downloaded archives into the folder with the video file.
- Download from the Internet an additional plug-in to the player, which synchronizes the video file and subtitles. If possible, install a plugin that supports working with various players, this will simplify the reproduction of these files in the future. For these purposes, we recommend using the DivXG400 plugin, but it may not work correctly with subtitles, for which Cyrillic was used. This plugin is freely distributed on the Internet.
