I've always used VobSub without any problem on different OS'es, with all kinds of media players.
Now at one point i had to play an unknown media format, i believe it was .mkv. Google "told me" to use the CCCP codec pack. The installation of this codec pack told me it was necessary to disable VobSub to work properly, so i did.
Subtitles didn't work anymore and the green arrow didn't show anymore in my systray …
So i uninstalled the cccp. No change. I've searched and searched, but haven't found a solution yet.
I have the feeling that VSFilter.dll isn't registered anymore somehow. When i use GSpot to list all my codecs and filters, VSFilter doesn't show up.
I've tried different version of (Direct)VobSub/VSFilter, to no avail.
What's going on, how do i bring DirectVobSub back?
This is on my Windows XP; may be different in a newer OS which I don't have.
If a DirectShow filter is not registered, you can register it manually this way:
1. The <Start> button -> <Run> (Or , , )
2. In the small edit box that pops up, type cmd to get the dos box.
3. In the dos box (a black-ish window): for example, if your VSFilter is located in "C:\some folder" type:
cd "c:\some folder"
If it works, a small message box pops up saying
"DllRegisterServer in vsfilter.dll succeeded."
A codec pack can be very useful but also can be very dangerous.
I wouldn't use any codec pack unless I absolutely have to.
