    I know this has been asked a bunch of times, but reading through the posts about this already didn’t solve my problem. My symptoms are very similar to what many people post.

    I have a video file called fileName.avi and an SRT file called in the same directory on an SMB share.

    I load the movie and no subtitles show. I press ‘up’ and no subtitles show. I go to the subtitle settings and verify that they are set to ‘On’ with ‘5.00’ for size and a color of ‘Yellow’. Still nothing.

    I’ve tried changing the Codepage to both UTF-8 and leaving it as default. No changes.

    I load this file in VLC on my PC and the subtitles work fine. I load the video in mplayerCE and the subtitles work fine.

    I know there is probably some little configuration that I’m screwing up, but I can’t find it for the life of me.

    Subtitle settings follow. I’m using 1.0.6

    Any help is appreciated. thanks


    Try these..they work fine for me.


    I ended up looking at the difference between the 1.0.6 “new install” package and the “update” package.

    Turns out there is a file in the “new install” called “subfont.ttf” that does not exist in the “update” package.

    When I update apps for homebrew, I usually just grab the newest contents under ‘/apps’ and replace what I have under ‘/apps’. So this meant that I didn’t get this “subfont.ttf” file since I was using the “update” package (erroneously, apparently)

    I will test later, but I’m guessing this is my problem.

    Who are the intended audiences for these different downloadable packages?


    New Install – you don’t have WiiMC yet
    Update – you’re updating (via WiiMC) or manually.

    People replace the subfont with fonts for other languages.


    That does make sense. I think I’ll stick to updating via WiiMC itself.

    This did fix my problem and subtitles work fine now.

    Thanks for everyone’s help.
