Viewing dramas w/ soft subs on a Mac computer

Post by coolios » Mar 29th, '06, 00:38


For Windows, I downloaded the K Lite Codec Pack and VobSub, and then used Windows Media Player to view the drama files. But I'm not sure how that works on a Mac computer? What are the subsitute "programs" that I need in order to view them on QuickTime or something?

Please advise.

An additional tip, rename your subtitles to correspond with your movie file, that way, when you open the movie with VLC, you can press "s" (without the quotations) to load the subtitles. It's fast, it's easy, and it saves time spent using the advanced open.

I use an intel based Mac OSx computer, and I having trouble finding a program that can combine a raw file with it's subtitles.

Any suggestion?

I'm missing out on great dramas because I can't understand them.

Any help is appreciated!

Thnx in Advance :)

Download Media Player Classic from this link - ... c_Pack.htm :-) It's very simple, as long as both your raw & subtitle file have the same file name and placed in the same location, you're on the right track :lol Good luck!

I used to play video with BSPlayer but the program doesn't work in Mac. Can someone tell me what is the best program like BSPlayer for Mac?

K, if you and others would be more descriptive in your post subject like adding "on a Mac" you would find more information and not have to ask what has been asked may times.
the simplest is to try vlc:
it doesn't work with all files/subs but there isn't much else out there.

i'm trying to get a Mac issues sticky or something so information is in one thread.
