BS.Player version and build number? Type of movie-file? Type of subs?
I suppose you already have (downloaded) the sub-files in the languages you want?
With a movie file loaded:
[1] (rightclick >) Subtitles > Primary ...... select subs-file ... etc
[2] (rightclick >) Subtitles > Secondary ... select subs-file ... etc
Or are you using on-line subs?

(Did you set "Default subtitle languages" under
rightclick > Options > Preferences > Subtitles [Subtitle properties] ?)

Default more info

I just downloaded newest version 2.58, since i had old one without option for 2 subtitles. I have also already downloaded subtitles.
I can not use this option, right click, subtitles, primary.... and there is no option to choose anything except subtitle editor, which is blank since there is no subtitle loaded...
Anyway It is not problem for me to upload subtitle, I can just drag and drop, or options, load subtitles.... but if i do it that way I can just make one subtitle as primary and secondary

In movie folder, put the two subtitles with same name as movie:

Movie.avi
Movie-eng.srt
Movie-yourlanguage.srt (for me: Movie-rum.avi )

Whn loading the movie, both subtitles will be loaded automatically. Now, you can select primary subtitle as one of them and the secondary..the other one.

If you still only see primary, then first also load both subs (e.g. using [Ctrl]+[L] keycombination or rightclick > Load subtitles).
After having done so you should be able to select as previously indicated.

I can swear that I tried this before, but it was not working, and after managing to upload two of them using previous, adicoto's recommendation, now this works too, and also I can even drag and drop one, and then second, and both are on the list... and for that i know for sure that I tried, and after dragging and dropping second one, it just automatically become primary, and first one was not loaded anymore....
it is some kind of bug in program or in my head

Default WORKAROUND: how to play two different language files

HERE IS YOUR SOLUTION!

I spent HOURS with this problem, until I finally saw the detailed advice to have two files. What the hell, I decided to try it:

-> THE REASON YOU NEED TO RENAME THE SUBTITLE FILE IS BEFCAUSE THE PLAYER IS BUGGY, and will play the same language in 2 different locations otherwise.

So just copy the subtitle file, rename them to be the same but end in -english and -otherlanguage before the extension.

Like this:
myfilm-english.sub
myfilm-otherlanguage.sub

and then you will have, for example, 6 languages show up instead of 3.

For example mine repeat

English
Spanish
French
English
Spanish
French

Before I copied I would have seen all 3 languages, but just 1 time. If I selected two different languages, they would still show up the same. After I made the change of copying, I could select this for the first one:
English <-- first subtitle
Spanish
French
English
Spanish
French

and this for the second one
English <-- first subtitle
Spanish
French
English
Spanish <-- second subtitle
French


If you are getting your subtitle from a single file, it is NOT possible to set it this way
English <--- first subtitle xxxxxxx not possible!!!
Spanish
French <--- second subtitle xxxxxx not possible!!!

If you did it this way, the same language would be played at top and bottom.

This is a bug, since why wouldn't that work? But it doesn't.

The workaround works fine!

Note that I experienced the same issue otehrs reported, where the two subtitles would match. So take this as a bug report and hopefully in future versions the workaround !!!

Thanks for a great player, team.



(technical information: in my case my subtitle file consisted of a an .idx and a .sub file, so after the copy I had two sets of files ...-english.idx and ...-english.sub and the same for another language.)
