Default Subtitle in Unicode

I edited a .srt file and saved it as Unicode (or rich-text) with a .srt extension but BSPlayer does not load it. Does anyone know how to display subtitle in language other than English. Please input. Thanks.

Use text files for subtitles. In options->preferences->subtitles->font, select the script more suitable for your location (IE, i use central european for my language to be dislpayed correctly)

Thank you Adicoto. If I saved the text file using encoding ANSI, I lost the Unicode characters. If I saved using encoding UNICODE, BSplayer does not recognize it. Any other hints, please!

So, let's see if we talk the same language.
1. You open notepad (text based editor)
2. Change keyboard layout to your mother-tongue
3. Type the subtitle using the new layout (not combinations of alt+ )
4. Save the subtitle as a text file, using txt extension.
5. Open the file again. Do you see the special chars speciffic to your country ? If not, then you don't installed Windows with support for your language. But this is not fatal for BSPlayer. If you see them, all is ok.
6. Open a video file with BSPlayer. Load the subtitle with BSPlayer. Go to font options and select a true type font (that support your language) and select the script suitable for your country.

So, after doing all that you can't see the subtitle correct ?

If you have WindowsXP, the notepad version is different from the Windows 9.x/ME one!!
With XP version you can save texts with Unicode charset, so if you want to try the adicoto suggestion, when saving your text file, save it throught the menu item File -> Save as..., and then at bottom of the Save as window select ANSI.

I hope that these instructions could help also giddybird

Not so complicated you only have to save the file with "Save as" instead of only "Save", and in that dialog window select the ANSI code.

But if you have problems, just post a message and I (or other users) will try to help you :)

Default problem with subtitle showing

This is what I see when I watch movie:


<i>Čekajte, ajmo... ajmo još nazad.
Preskočio sam previše konekcija.</i>


problems are this: Č, this: č, and this: š


When I open the same text file in ms word, with (Unicode UTF 8), I see this:


<i>Čekajte, ajmo... ajmo još nazad.
Preskočio sam previše konekcija.</i>


in ms word - ÄŚ is Č, ÄŤ is č, š is š



so you can see what is the difference


I noticed the same problem a 100 times before, but, each time before, when I've got a problem, I found another subs for that movie, with correct letters. Today, I couldn't find better subtitles. So, can somebody help?

One more thing: I tried with correction in ms word. I opened subtitle file as ms word doc, using find and replace, I replaced strange characters with correct ones and saved the new subtitle so BS player can recognize it. But result was the same. When I started the movie, letters was the same strange as before.

I solved the problem. I simply saved text file with correct letters as ANSI in notepad. And yes, I loosed the special letters as Č its C now, and Š its S now, and Ć is also C, and Đ is D (as VIDEOTREE answered to ADICOTO), but - it works for me now, because I can watch the movie because I naturally recognize the words.
