Subtitle problem

4 posts in this topic

Posted

Hi guys. I'm trying to edit some subtitles and I'm having trouble with the character encoding. The subtitle is in .srt format and it shows perfectly fine in Media Player Classic (Central European encoding). However, if I open the subtitle in Notepad or Subtitle Workshop (or any other subtitle editor that I've tried), all the diacritics are changed to weird characters. In Subtitle Workshop I've set the Central/Eastern European encoding, but no effect. 

 

So, how come the damn thing works fine in the video player and shows up weird in editors? :( And is there anything I can do to solve this? Thank you.

Does any other encoding work? Does the font in Notepad support the diacritic marks?

I've only every edited subtitles once, using SubtitleEdit 3.3.8

 

Bit of a long shot, seeing as how you have tried others already, but worth a try I suppose (if you haven't tried it already).

In Notepad, if I change the encoding, there's no effect, except for weird characters instead of diacritics. For the European encoding I mean. If I change it to Arabian or whatever, it changes the text. It's a wonder that Media Player Classic shows the characters just fine, but ANY text/subtitle editor does not... :(

I did, it's the same...

 

EDIT: Here's the subtitle I am trying to edit (well, one of the many, since it's a whole season), maybe some of you can figure out what's wrong with it... http://www57.zippyshare.com/v/82877853/file.html
