Tip #12: Play DivX with Subtitles

leave a comment »

One good feature is going to be added into LinuxMCE 0710. It’s a possibility to playback DivX movies with subtitles. The media player expects to have file with subtitles in the same directory as DivX and with the same name but with one of following extensions: *.asc, *.txt, *.sub, *.srt, *.smi and *.ssa. For example, if we have DivX file The_Troy.avi, the file with subtitles should be named and placed in the same directory.

A few configuration parameters are available in the /etc/pluto/xine.conf to customize subtitles font, size, encoding type. You can find them here.

Unfortunately, that feature is not yet included into LinuxMCE 0710 Beta 3.

UPDATED: It should work in LinuxMCE 0710 Beta 4!
