Make sure:

  • The file extension of subtitle file is .srt, .smi, .sub, .ssa, or .txt
  • The subtitle filename is the same as the DivX movie filename. For example: If filename of the movie is ?Movie.avi?, the text file for the subtitle should be “Movie.sub” or “”
  • The subtitle file is in the same folder as the DivX movie file
  • If the full length of the subtitle is not displayed during the movie playback, this could be due to the subtitle text length exceeding the maximum limit for this set. In this case, rename the subtitle to a shorter length.
