Okay, I have a RAW of a dorama episode of Tantei Gauken Q and I have the ass file for the particular episode with it.

The problem is that when I open my media player when I have both of them highlighted, the subs don't show on the video. I'm opening it like I do it with an SRT file extension.

Am I doing this wrong or is the file extension corrupted ?? rolleyes.gif

I got the episode and the ass. file from here -----> http://getfansub.com/wiki/Tantei_Gakuen_Q_%28JDorama%29

So yeah, I couldn't really convey my problem as I wanted but I tried to do it as best as I can.....................so PLEASE someone help me!!!

Thanx!!! XD biggrin.gif

did you try labeling the files the same name and then opening in media player classic? (they need to be in the same folder.)

if i get it right the rss file contains subs so I would advise you to press CTRL + L when you open MPC if a select box to select its location dose not appears(dosnt always works but seems to work in codac packs) then you should just download BSplayer that will save you trouble in the future.

if you did the old method in the right way and it didnt work then you should click with the right key the player(after you loaded the movie with the subs ) and go to filters and see the filters you have one of the name in the list can be opened to the right see if its off.
further more you can open the subtitle section and check it out as well

Whats the player?

If it's media player classic, first open the raw episode, then go to File>Load Subtitle, and pick the ass file. For most players there is something close to that, like "open subtitle file" or something.

If neither of those work, try remuxing it (google "mkvmerge gui"). It sounds hard but really isn't, and it saves time for rewatching.

Hmmm, try ussing the program subtitle workshop? It can convert up to 50 differnt formats of subtitle files. .ass to .srt is easy... But i agree with ussing mkvmerge gui.

Ugh... It's usually way easier and more helpful for the future to just figure out how to play the original file then to find workarounds like converting...

Also subtitle workshop is crap. The only decent subtitle editing tool is Aegisub, which is what most fansubbers use.

BSplayer

BSplayer is likely the most broken player ever made. Even VLC is more usable.

BSplayer fun

Lastly, the correct way to play ass subtitles that are separated. Is to rename the video and subtitles so that they match and keep them in the same directory. Or to mux the file together instead with mkvmerge.

Using Load Subtitle from the file menu in MPC will force usage of the internal renderer. Which is outdated and might not work correctly.

Thanks guys. biggrin.gif I tend to use MPC over VLC. rolleyes.gif

EDIT: -
DAMN...........now I'm getting this message when I use the load subtitle option: -
QUOTE
To load subtitles you have change the video renderer and reopen the file.
- DirectShow: VMR7/VMR9 (renderless) or Haali Video Renderer
- RealMedia: Special renderer for RealMedia, or open it through DirectShow
- Quicktime: DX7 or DX9 renderer for Quicktime

Okay, what on earth does this mean ???? ohmy.gif blink.gif blink.gif blink.gif blink.gif blink.gif

Like harukalover said, using the "load subtitle" function doesn't always work... (yeah, i know i was the one who suggested it) It's probably workable if you change the renderer, but it's not really a good idea to mess with it if you don't know what you're doing.

Choice 1: Try renaming the sub with the same exact file name as the raw, exactly the same. If they are in the same directory, you should be able to load it just like if it was muxed into the file, assuming you use cccp.

Choice 2: The best option is to remux it.
http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolni...ds.html#windows
How to remux: Download, then install, and open the mkvmerge gui (mmg.exe I think?). Click on "add", and add the raw file. Then, add the ass file. Then, if you want to, type in names for the streams (ie "English Subs"), or set the language codes, but its all optional. Change the output file (line on the bottom) to change the title of the file. Then, click on "start muxing". It will be an mkv, but it will be the same quality as before, just with the softsubs added in.

Doofus, I tried out what you said but after I restarted MPC, the video didn't show up, however, I was able to use the load subtitle option but unfortunately that was useless since no video was coming up. wink.gif

chickenwing71x, both the avi and ass file are in one file. rolleyes.gif

The thing is on my desktop, I've installed both CCCP and K-Lite together. wink.gif

Anyways, I'm now remuxing it with MKVmerge GUI.....I will give feedback on it, once its done. biggrin.gif

I remuxed using mkvmerge GUI and sadly again....it didn't work out. I'm about to uninstall both codecs and then reinstall CCCP alone, since, almost everyone here loves it. tongue.gif

EDIT:

Now its only CCCP but it still won't work................why ???????????? sad.gif

So, am I correct in saying... You took the avi raw you downloaded, and muxed it with the ass subtitle file into an mkv with mkvmerge?

If so, after opening the new mkv in media player classic, go to Navigate>Subtitle Language>the subtitle file (it might be called "unknown" or something). That should work.

But if none of our suggestions work, i don't know what to say... All i can think of is renaming or remuxing. remember to go to Navigate>Subtitle Language in case the subs don't show up automatically.

Well i knew this would happened any way stop all this complicated actions just download
BSplayer and reinstall your CCCP that will do it for shore!!

Mod's note: Link removed. No warez allowed; also, CCCP works fine by itself without BS player. Throwing more stuff in won't fix the problem.

P.s: the rar contains install and keygen i think you can figure out how to install it smile.gif (ignore the buleshit in russin)

P.s:can you give me the rss file you are trying to use?

To try to summarize:

Uninstall every codec/player you have. Then, install the newest cccp. You can always add another codec if cccp doesn't support something. This isn't to help the sub work, its just generic advice for anyone who had mult. codec packs installed, and it can prevent possible future problems with which filter are registered. Now, for getting the subs to work:

1: Try renaming the subs/episode to the exact same file name in the same directory.

2: Try remuxing it.

3: Upload/link to the ass file so we can see if theres anything wrong with it.

Don't forget to go to Navigate>Subtitle Language in case the subs don't show up automatically.

By the way, its called bsplayer for a reason. Don't even bother with it.

CCCP Insurgent

With the remuxed mkv, run a test render with insurgent (tools>test render), and copy/paste the result

I don't know why It wouldn't work...where did you get the raw from? And do all the episodes not work, or just one? I'll try dling the raw+ass and test it myself.

EDIT: Ah, found the torrents for the raws, but they look almost dead. I don't feel like waiting a few days for it to download... so i won't be doing it myself.

Probably is a pebkac problem...

@JCDRANZER
if you followed all the directions to the word in remuxing, there is something wrong with your player/splitter (don't go technical on me Harukalover, i know it could be something else) or the ass script. I looked at the script, opened in aegisub, looks fine. Downloading the raw now (another half hour, megaupload is slow on me today), then I'll remux them myself.

I don't know what to say. If mkvmerge doesn't do it, I don't know what will. All I can think is you overlooked something, like opening the raw instead of the mkv by accident or forgot to turn the subs on with navigate>subtitle language, or... Did you check the box next to the subs in mkvmerge? I know people have done this before, and didnt mux the subs in. I forgot to add that earlier. Some people see the lack of karaoke and assume the subs don't work, even though fansubbers usually hardsub karaoke.

pro-tip: When checking the validity of a sub file. Open it in notepad, not Aegisub. Then check the formatting and if the header is fine.

Just download my attachment to this post to see what are the valid ass specifications.

Lastly, in order to solve this. You must take into account that the topic creator has already destroyed his directshow environment. This means not only a test render would be needed but also a File --> Save log from insurgent. Then when you are sure directshow is usable, you can instruct him to remux (maybe using gdsmux instead of forcing him to install mkvmerge) or just rename the two files so they match.
