[Matroska-users] Sub Problems

Hi Mikko,

vsfilter = DirectVobSub ( from gabest ). To make DVobSub work correctly 
with Haali's splitter, you need the very latest version of it, which is 
coming automatically together with Haali's splitter in our matroska 
playback pack 1.1.1 from http://packs.matroska.org .

If you want the very latest version of Haali's splitter ( the one in the 
pack is about 4 weeks old ) because you are also into viewing MP4 files 
with it, there are 2 options :

1. First install matroska playback pack 1.1.1 ( giving you the latest 
DirectVobSub ), then install latest Haali splitter once again

2. Download vsfilter.dll alone from http://sf.net/projects/guliverkli , 
copy it into c:\ and register it with a command like 'regsvr32 
c:\vsfilter.dll' .. it should come back with the message 'registering 
successful bla bla ...'

VLC is not DirectShow based, so it doesnt use vsfilter.dll or Haali's 
splitter at all.

Hope this helped

>I can play my mkv files most nicely with the Player but problem is that subtitles refuse to show up. I'm using DirectVobSub regularly and the odd thing is that subs show when I'm using VLC media player. I downloaded your Haali Media Splitter, but I suppose it has some troubles communicating with DirectShow and Gabest's Directvob for some reason. I suppose I could try to use VSFilter if it works or some other application, just that I don't have the slightest idea how to apply VSfilter or some other single file packs without any installation programs. I remain clueless. If you have any suggestions please send them to me. Just keep in mind that I'm no programming geek and I have some hardship using RegEdit or something else. I'm just a guy who knows a bit about computers and handling software, not the deepest secrets of them.
