Character set used with subtitles
I have the BS player 2.56 installed on a Windows XP with US/English localization. Hence, even if I try to play subtitles in other languages, the default system codepage/charset is used for their display. Is there really no way to ask the player to use a charset suited to the language of the desired subtitles, independently of the "native" language of the OS?
Under (rightclick >) Options > Preferences > Subtitles [Subtitle properties] > (Font)
you can set/select (independently for Primary and/or Secondary subtitles) i.a. default font - fontstyle - fontcolor - fontsize and (important for your purpose) fontscript.
Did you try that already?
If the script you're looking for doesn't seem to be present, you may try if it perhaps is when using another font. (E.g. Ariel unicode MS.)
With a moviefile and (text)based subtitles loaded you can also do so following
rightclick > Subtitles > Primary/Secondary > Subtitle properties > Font
You don't mention whether you're using the "new subtitle parser/renderer"-option or not (under [Subtitle properties]). In this connection please note that new subtitle parser/renderer has been buggy for "right to left" languages for some sime. However, this is reported to have been fixed in version 2.58.1058.) (See this post.)

When posting always mention your computer's OS and the version and build number(!) of BS.Player as used by you,
as well as - if applicable and especially when encountering problems - the type(s) of the file(s) mentioned in your post.
