Uh huh. I'm assuming you're using Windows and that retched Windows  
Media Player.

Isn't TCPMP a player for Palm OS? I'm pretty sure that while TCPMP  
has support for Matroska, I don't know if it has support for subtitles.

No problem. If you're trying to play with Palm OS, I don't think  
there is a player that will render subtitles on top of a video. For  
that, you'll have to transcode the file and burn the subtitles into  
the video. For Windows, I have little clue what to do, but I know  
that VLC will allow the use of most Matroska features, including  
multiple video, audio, and subtitle tracks, and chapter points.  
Subtitle options are stashed in the Video menu.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.1 (Darwin)
