    Hi,

    I have a movie in .rmvb(real media) format. I also have the associated subtitle in .srt format.

    But when I open it using real player, it doesn't show the subtitles.

    After searching in google, I found that for windows, there is a seprate codec to show subtitles. I haven't found any for Mac OS.

    Can someone suggest anyother player or any other way to play this file with subtitle

    thanks

    Have you tried using VLC? You can specify the subtitle file there in addition to the video file. It might work (and certainly it would take less time/effort than to convert the file to .avi).

    RealMedia has never supported OSX very well, and it seems that the trend is continuing.

    This is most definitely not a question of real media supporting OS X. I had the same problem trying to run rmvb files on my windows laptop with subtitles - i tried everything, made sure the .srt file was named correctly, and then finally was forced to so some searching online.
    To the best of my knowledge, rmvb files can't be played with subtitles. I concede that it's a great format (file sizes are incredibly small), but really, I don't see why Real just doesn't close down and stop bothering ppl with their eccentric software.
    Oh, and VLC doesn't support rmvb files.

    Actually its pretty easy to play rmvb with subs on windows. There is at least Media Player Classic (found in k-lite codec pack) that runs on windows, and that is what I use to do that.

    And I totally agree with your last sentence about Real! hahaha
