I have this problem too and can't figure out a way to fix it. It seems I have tried everything. I can't believe a commercial player has such flaws.

I'm switching to MPC.

it seems that you guys are in a mess just like me before :(

i know, BSplayer got some bugs when playing mkv file, no subs, and all... but i love BSplayer so much and it seems that, im not sure if this solution would apply the same to you guys, but in my case, i MANAGED to get the subs played in mkv, and managed to make the mkv file played smoothly from beginning till the end. here's what i've done:

considering you guys already done what it need to show the subtitle in BSplayer option such as in preferences>filter management>tick both 'allow immediate filters' and 'enable advanced graph building' AND in preferences>subtitles>tick the 'subtitles disabled' and go to 'VobSub' tab, check the both option in there.

ok, now:

1-I install the latest k-lite mega codec full pack (version 3.6.5), yes, the MEGA, not the common one.(make sure to uninstall any other codecs first)

2-after that, i go to the ffdshow video decoder option that can be found at start menu>program>k-lite codec pack>ffdshow video decoder. the page at the right side of the window, you could see what kind of decoder is used for which codecs to apply to. noticed that the H.264/AVC the decoder for it is disabled (as default). click at 'disabled' and select 'libavcodec'. click ok.

3-now when you play mkv file, the subtitle should be showing by now (in my case, yes there's sub). notice at the taskbar where there's green arrow showing up too (vobsub).

4-double-click the vobsub, go to 'Misc' tab, tick the 'Pre-buffer subpictures' only IF its not tick yet. this is to make the video decoding become smoother, and there wont be like the video slowing down and the voice go play ahead without sync with the frame (in my case). and you're done.

and again, i dont know if these are applied to other users. but for me, it works like a charm tonight. i just wanted to share it with others. so... i would like to apologize if what i give out here didnt make the subtitle appear for mkv file.

feel free to try though.. :)

Sorry to dissapoint you, but I have just 1 or 2 mkv files where subtitles don't work (I assume the subs are in ssa/ass format). The other files play OK, even with 10 different subtitles. Without VobSub or Vsfilter, just default settings in BSPlayer. And at this moment I am allmost sure that BSPlayer it's not the faulty one in here, unless the subtitles are in ssa/ass format.

Since it works correctly in every other player including GraphEdit, the fault MUST be in BS.Player.

adicoto 4th January 2008 06:58 AM

Are you sure that GraphEdit uses the same decoders/filters/splitters as BSPlayer ?

Tizio 4th January 2008 11:02 AM

No, graphedit don't always use the same graph as bsplayer, the same applies to GSPot.. there you can choose the splitters and codecs to use, bsplayer tries to use the best ones (and sometimes fails)

Gabest's splitter does not support some of the more advanced Matroska features. People should not be forced to use another splitter because of bugs in the player. BS.Player should just be able to work together with Haali's splitter. It works correctly in MPC, WMP, GraphEdit, GSpot and ZoomPlayer.

BS.Player team should fix this bug.

adicoto 4th January 2008 07:16 PM

It's not about Gabest. See new image, with Haali.

speedtrap 4th January 2008 07:50 PM

Sure it will work with some files, but not with for example SSA subs. Also I want to use DirectVobSub instead of the internal subtitle renderer. And yes, I have got thing configured correctly.

adicoto 4th January 2008 07:52 PM

For now, I am the only one specifying that ssa/ass may be a problem, and that's because BSPlayer's support fot this format it's almost 0. So, at this moment you are just quoting me, nothing new.

speedtrap 4th January 2008 07:59 PM

That is one of the reasons why I want to use DirectVobSub. That does support SSA and ASS subs.

DirectVobSub gets loaded correctly for embedded SRT subs. But once a file contains SSA/ASS, then DirectVobSub won't get loaded. So I suspect that the "Subtitles disabled" option in BSPlayer does not disable everything that it is supposed to do.

adicoto 4th January 2008 08:17 PM

If you select always load into VobSub options ?

speedtrap 5th January 2008 03:12 PM

Does not work either.

Here is a sample file:

Can someone from the BSPlayer development team please comment on this problem? Or better yet, fix it.

adicoto 5th January 2008 05:10 PM

I remember testing this file some 2 years ago, working fine, some 7-8 subs inluded, many colours. Downloading again.

adicoto 5th January 2008 05:21 PM

Same as always:

LE: You can't swich between subtitles :cry:

adicoto 5th January 2008 05:43 PM

Internal subtitle renderer may be the cause, also poor support for ssa/ass. Seems anime fans still have to wait until BSPlayer will be their first option.
