Since all the Megaupload files are no longer available, this section has been removed.
I’m sure there are random subs still available on youtube…but don’t think I’ll be subbing videos again. It’s much too time consuming, not to mention copyright laws, etc. I’ve had my fun… :)
However, it was good to see that there are a lot more official subbed videos on youtube that are high definition these days. My, how things changed in the five years that I’ve had my hiatus. Mostly for the better…

I think most of the .srt softsubs will play by default…
However, if you have softsubs in other formats, you may need the right plug-ins or codecs.
I use Advanced SubStation Alpha format (.ass) a lot… and to view this, you need to install Vobsub.
Or, you may wish to install the CCCP Codec Pack which will work too.
Put the video file and the softsub file in the same folder in the computer.. and rename them so that they have the same name with just different extensions.
When you play the .avi file with a player like Windows media player, the subtitles should show up automatically.
