How To Display Dual Subtitles With Storm Codec

Unless a movie file comes with an open subtitle (a.k.a hardsubs or hard subtitle), you may separately download soft subtitles (also known as softsubs or closed subtitle) of the movie from Internet.

With these closed subtitle files, you may get the Storm Codec (a.k.a Baofeng codec pack) and MPC (Media Player Classic) to simultaneously display two subtitles for the movie!
It is possible to display up to two movie subtitles in Media Player Classic with Storm Codec installed.

How to display Chinese and English subtitles of the Shrek movie?

First, make sure the subtitle files and movie file are using the same “major” file name. For example, if the movie file is named as Shrek-CD1.avi, then the English and Chinese subtitles must be named as Shrek-CD1.en.srt and Shrek-CD1.ch.srt respectively.
There are many subtitles format, such as .SRT, .SUB, .SUB + .IDX, etc.

Next, open Media Player Classic (MPC) and set the DirectShow Video option to VMR9. (Click View menu | Option… | Playback | Output | DirectShow Video)

Configure MPC DirectShow option in Playback Output to VMR9.

Then, click on the Play menu, go to Subtitles, make sure it’s set to Enabled and select the second subtitle in the available list.

Now, the dual movie subtitles for the movie are displayed, but most likely overlapped each other, as seen here.
