    Alternatively, you can rename your srt file to the same as your video file. eg. if your video file is movie.avi, rename your srt file to movie.srt, install a codecs pack (k-lite codec pack) and u r done

    very simple method to use .srt file
    If you use K-Lite codec pack
    Or windows media player classic
    Just rename the .srt file to the name exactly same as the movie video u wanna watch
    Put them in same folder n enjoy :D

    For example if you have a movie called "Rendition.avi"
    Just rename the srt file to "Rendition.srt"

    ^Use K-Lite codec pack's latest version along with Direct VOBSub plug-in which should do the trick for directly synching the subtitles.If it's a .avi movie file downloaded via torrents then make sure you rename the .srt subtitle file to the exact same name as your movie file.Eg: Matrix_Revolution_1.avi (for movie) & Matrix_Revolution_1.srt (or .sub for the subtitle file).Remember if the file names differ then it won't pick up the subtitle directly.;)

    @mobileman:The advantage of using a subtitle in a movie is to pick up some words which are not heard properly by some people.Usually many words are spoken softly,wisphered,spoken too fast or in a slang manner.So to get those words you can have subtitles enabled to let you know what's happening.Alternatively it acts as a translation for watching different language movies/non-native language movies.

    You can also use the www.fsubs.com service which will automatically rename the subtitle file based on your movie's filename, its quite useful

    the simple and the best method is explained by casanova
    just rename the *.srt file to the name of the video file.

    example if the name of the video file is "terminator.avi" then rename the srt file to "terminator.srt", now when you play the video file the subtitile file is automatically loaded.
