Yesterday, i tryed again to watch a movie with subtitles. No success. No subtitle.
The file is 2012 Doomsday.avi and the subtitle is 2012 Doomsday.srt with a symlink to 2012 Doomsday.avi.srt.
Today i did an apt-get upgrade and an apt-get dist-upgrade.
After that i installed vlc and kaffeine.
After reboot, i did try to watch the same movie with kaffeine. No sound (All Audio Drivers Failed to initialize).
So, i did try on Hybrids MD Media -> Video. For my surprise, subtitles now works.
Well, so happy with that i tryed to watch Twilight.mkv, having subtitles on Twilight.srt and symlinked to Twilight.mkv.srt. Dam... does not work. No subtitles......
So, i renamed the Twilight.mkv file to Twilight.m2ts. Now it plays with subtitles, but no audio
- subtitles where not working until yesterday. Now it works, but for avi files only. Or with .m2ts but without sound.
The funny thing is that swtching environment (booting the second partition, with kubuntu 8.10 only), with the same versions of kaffeine and vlc, i can watch ALL the movies with subtitles (avi, mp4, mkv, mpeg)....
Could someone more experienced than me explain what could be happening?
I'm not lazy, and not a linux newbie. But what is happening is simply ilogical.
I got a hint which did not work. Reporting it did not work, simply silence. Thx!
Lmce has a fabulous interface, but it's not helping "stupid" users like me....
It' s really driving me nuts, and i give up. Maybe in some weeks i will try again.... in the meantime, will test telephony.
