Downloading Subtitles using Media player classic

Are you a Movie lover and download or purchase movies frequently? Many times you must have faced a problem when you downloaded a movie in some other language. Now its a bit hard to watch a movie in some other language which your mind can't understand.

The solution is to use Subtitles. You can watch movies in other languages with subtitles in English or your own language. In that way you can understand the movie.

But the main problem occurs where to get these subtitles? Many times we waste a lot of time in searching for the subtitles for a particular movie

So here is the solution which will make your life easier. MPC , it is a little old - latest release is dated to 2006-03-20, but that means nothing. It is still one of the best software players floating around. I will show you in this guide how to download perfectly matched subtitles without opening any website using OpenSubtitles ISDb protocol.

  • Step 1: Open MPC, press “O” - you will get options window
  • Step 2: Find Playback → Output, change settings to VMR9 (renderless) or VMR7 (renderless) - if you will not change this, Download will be disabled!
  • Step 3: In options window set in Subtitles → Database: "", you can test it if you want
  • Step 4: Open some movie (drag and drop, CTRL+O), and click File → Subtitle Database → Download

Step 5: Select some subtitle in your language, click to Download & Open
Congratulations !! - You are watching Movie with Subtitles!

If no subtitles are available - don’t panic, go to File → Subtitle Database → Search - browser will open and maybe it finds something :) If this step fails too, you have to search those subtitles manually - if they exists on website it means they are not connected with your movie, so it should be nice, if you upload them again.
