How to shows subtitle (*.srt) in Windows 7 - Windows Media Player 12

By default, Windows 7 Windows Media Player 12 (WMP12) does not support *. SRT files for movie ssubtitles. To shows subtitle on WMP12, we can use Local Subtitles for WMP plug-in from This Plug-In will allow you to play movies with subtitles in Windows 7 Media Player 12

And here's the steps :
  • Prepare your video files
  • Download subtitle (*. SRT) in accordance with the title of the movies and languages you want. (Subscene is a recommended site for subtitle's searching).
  • Rename the SRT file name with the same name of your movie file (excluding the extension). 
For example:
- myvideodvdrip.mp4

    • The movie will be played. Make sure the subtitle is loaded by right clicking on the movie screen > Lyrics, captions and subtitles> On, if available
    • Done. Your WMP12 will shows the subtile below the the screen.

    Have a try ! :-)


    1. thanks for the info!
      its very useful~
      i should have found this before i downloaded so many other media players but still cant play the subs(-_-)

      1. @Shania :

        So you've tried to downloaded many media players?
        Have u tried VLC or Light Alloy? they can show the subtitles by default, just renamed the subs files with the same name of the movie. Have a try

    2. It's really working but there is a black semitransparent cover behind subtitles.It covers a part of the video

    3. One of these system requirements has a processor. For you to have the windows media player performing, you have to use a processor with capabilities of about 233 megahertz. These types of processor chips are easily obtainable, and a good example is the Apple Pentium processor, as well as the Advanced Small Devices processor.
