Subtitles in two languages

Post by zizzzzzzzz on Thu Aug 10, 2017 2:23 pm

It would be great for the mpc-hc to show 2 subtitles simultaneously, like one in the original langueage, and a translation. As far as i know it is not possible now.

This is possible with MPC-HC.

MPC-HC options > Advanced > BlockVSFilter = False
Then you can use both the internal subtitle renderer of MPC-HC and VSFilter at the same time. Each can display a different subtitle.
There is just one limitation: at least one of the two subtitles must be an external subtitle file (for example .srt), because only one embedded subtitle can be active in the splitter.

MPC-HC options > Subtitles > disable "Prefer external subtitles over embedded subtitles"

Here you can select first subtitle:
MPC-HC menu > Play > Subtitle track
(it is recommended to use MPC-HC for displaying an embedded subtitle and VSFilter for an external one)

Second one can be selected by right-clicking on the VSFilter icon that appears in the system tray (right bottom corner of screen).
VSFilter can also be accessed through: MPC-HC menu > Play > Filters

Now you need to adjust the position of the subtitles, so that they don't overlap. You can do this in either MPC-HC or in VSFilter. Both offer the same options.

MPC-HC options > Subtitles > Default Style > Adjust the position of the subtitles.
For example position it at the top instead of bottom. Or increase bottom margin to move it to a higher position.
- or -
VSFilter settings > Main > Text Settings > click on "Arial"


When you want to display only one subtitle, you can use one of the following settings to disable subtitles in either MPC-HC or VSFilter:
MPC-HC menu > Play > Subtitles > Enable (or simply press W on your keyboard)
VSFilter right-click menu > Hide subtitles
