Before I begin, I have no problems playing subtitles with Mplayer or any other media player. However I have come across a few anomalies that as a relative newbie I can't get my head around.
I have two separate movies. Both *.avi files with a *.srt subtitle. Both have exactly the same name bar the file extension. When I click on one avi file the subtitle loads automatically, the other I have to select is manually.
Not a big deal you may say, just select it manually, a few seconds of your time. However, for the past few months I have been running all video files from the terminal on the account that prior to that I experienced countless playback problems, since using the terminal as suggested on these forums my problems have been virtually zero. So my next question is how do I load subtitles manually from the terminal I've tried numerous commands (suggested from the mplayer help ) such as
mplayer -sub <file.srt> <file.avi>
and vice versa, but to no avail.
Pointers in any direction will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
(incidentally one film is Japanese the other is Korean. The problem file is Korean. But, I live in Korea and have full Korean language support on my computer so I can't see why that would be the problem)
