@Cubicheote
Make a Backup of your srt-file.
Open srt-file with notepad.
Choose 'SAVE AS' - it shows the dialog where(at the bottom) 'ANSI' 'UNICODE' or 'UTF-8' might be shown.
That's the coding now. Choose UTF-8 and save.
Check for the right suffix. Do not use caps.

MPC/VOBSUB sometimes do not show subs if it is coded in UTF-8. After saving as ANSI-coded (notepad will do the trick), the subs play just fine. Same goes for UNICODE-coded. It appears that VOBSUB does not work with UTF-8, but ANSI and UNICODE. Don't forget to make a backup of your srt-file before ch...
