Problem with displaying VobSub subtitles
 
Hi. The problem I'm having has me kinda baffled and I'm out of ideas.

The following happens when I try to play x264 files. When there are soft-coded subtitles in the file, and those are bitmaps, they play just fine, turn on and off as I want.

When they are VobSub subtitles, I get the following error msg: A decoder for the new track could not be found. Track type: VobSub. I click okay, the player goes to a black screen and then nothing.

Now I know it's not the file itself that's screwy, because when I use a thumbnailing program, it creates those just fine.

Under Options > Preferences > Subtitles on the VobSub tab, 'Enable VobSub support' has been checked.

Using BS Player 2.58 build 1058 on a Win7 64bit system

VobSub <=> bitmaps.

I understand that if the subtittles are in an external file, they work OK but if the subtitles are internal (included into the MKV file) you get the error message ?
Can you post here file specifications and which filters are used to decode such files ?

nemmy 15th August 2012 05:55 AM

No, the subtitles are included in the file.

As for the info you asked for, would post it if I knew what you meant :)

If they are bitmaps, then it's a VobSub subtitle, that's why I was refering to external subtitles. Probably you ment to refer to text subtitles (sub, srt)

In this case you refer to internal bitmap (VobSub) subtitles

Open file in Media Info, for example, for file specifications
For filters used, open a file, rightclick -> options -> filters

OK, now, if you click on source filter, on the right hand you will see the splitter details. Can you post here ?

OK, can you post here or via PM a link to such a file to test ?

Downloaded test file. In here it plays OK using Haali media splitter and CoreAVC.
Using old subtitles renderer, no problems, using new renderer, subtitles not displayed, but no error messages. Problem could be in another setting. Enable VobSub and load subtitles into memory enabled in subtitles options.
Does the file contain only English subtitles ?
Do you have VobSub installed ?

nemmy 17th August 2012 01:36 PM

If it plays for you it's definitely a problem on my box, as I suspected. Yes, VobSub is installed, it's enabled, and the load in memory box is checked. And yes, only english subs.

adicoto 17th August 2012 02:15 PM

Coul you try to install CoreAVC instead of using ffdshow ?
In ffdshow, load subtitles is enabled ? Could the error be generated by ffdshow ?

nemmy 17th August 2012 09:13 PM

Wouldn't it then always have to give the error. I have files with subtitles included that work just fine...

adicoto 18th August 2012 05:51 AM

Internal subtitles can be text based (.srt, .ssa/ass...) and bitmap (vobsub). If all vobsub subtitles files gives an error, then we have a common ground. If not, then is a random problem and it's harder to pinpoint.

nemmy 18th August 2012 10:10 AM

And there lies my problem: both the ones that work and the ones that don't are VobSub...

adicoto 18th August 2012 11:18 PM

DO the files that fails have more than one vobsub stream inside ? 2-3 subtitles ?

nemmy 19th August 2012 09:13 AM

I have one that works fine that has 4 subtitle streams.
