    I think this is the first time you hear this
    May be, But I'm sure of one thing
    I was playing one J-drama on quick time
    and I saw something unexpected, it plays subtitle!!
    in the beginning I wasn't sure about it, so I played another movie to check
    and it played it, with the subtitle!!
    Screenshot is in the attachment!!
    I'll add more attachment later

    Cheers

    I know that under Quicktime preferences, you can check a box to show Closed Captioning if available.

    Judging by the screenshot, the files probably just had hard subs. :rolleyes: (can an AVI even contain soft subs?)

    Unless you are using perian, and playing a fileformat that supports subtitles, like mkv's, you are probably playing a hard subbed avi file.

    Quick Time playing subtitle (UPDATED MOVIE)

    I’ve done the video but I'm having trouble uploading it.
    I don't have fast internet at home, so I use internet in my office!
    And when I upload it to you tube or Google video I get file too large message
    It’s about 131 MB, any one can help me?
    Or give me a place to upload it there

    Thanx

    The video is online

    Finally I've uploaded the video,
    This is one of the strange (but good) features I found in Quick Time
    It actually plays subtitle, in the video:
    1- Play the avi file without subtitle.
    2- Move the file to EN sub folder for the English version of the subtitle.
    3- Again move the folder to AR sub to play with the Arabic version of the subtitle.
    4- Move to NO sub folder for non subtitle play.
    Tested on a standard Mac Pro with Mac OS 10.4.10, and Quick Time 7.2
    Please don’t ask me how did I did it, because I don’t know!!

    Please give me your feedback about this
    Cheers

    YES, I did

    OHHH MAN,
    I did all this miss for this!
    Yes I did install perian, it works great!
    Even with Arabic sub too,
    Because the only app that does Arabic sub is Chroma

    Cheers
