Thanks Syncronator! I guess I should have found the solution to my problem in the post you cite, but since I didn't know it was an ANSI/UTF8 problem, my search didn't point me in that direction ... Btw, my mediaplayer is a ACRyan Playon!HD. Couldn't cope with the UTF8, but the ANSI works just fine now. Many many thanks again anyway!

Re-downloaded a few subs for Boardwalk Empire that I had problems with, now forcing ANSI. No more problems! Seems this does the trick! Never heard of the "UTF-8" problem before, but you obviously had. Can you tell me what causes this problem? And why not always force ANSI if this removes the problem? Thanks anyway for the very good advice!

I've forced the ANSI. Thanks for the advice. Will let you know if I encounter any more problems ... Hope not!

Hi,

Try to use Subtitle Edit ( from HERE), install it then open a subtitle that have those issues and save it as UTF - 8 (you'll see under toolbar some options, how to encode a file is one of them).
Or, use PM and send me a file, to check.

doc.

A recent one I had this problem with is the Once Upon a Time - 01x10 - 7_15 A.M..LOL.English.C.orig.Addic7ed.com.srt (works with 720p DIMENSION). Doesn't open in Subtitle Tool. Open in Subtitle Edit and save as UTF - 8 makes no difference ... It's a mystery to me ...

Thanks doc! I'm mostly using VLC on my PC. Windows XP. After posting I realized that the strange characters I'm describing may not be the original characters that are in the problematical srt files, because when I see them the files are already converted to MS-DOS txt. In that process for instance, when there are musical notes in the srt file, they are changed to something completely else. So all I can say is, I'm looking for something (program? coding?) that sometimes puts something (characters?) in front of the number 1 of the first sub line, resulting in VLC player (and also Subtitle Tool and my ACRyan PlayOn!HD) not recognizing it as a SubRip file and not playing them... And it's only with some of the Addic7ed subs that I have this problem, most are fine. And quite excellent, of course!
