    Hi,

    I was looking for a Wii media player can show divx Xsubs.
    I tried MPlayer and WiiMC, they play the movie fine, but doesn't show the subtitles at all, while my cheap DVD player handle it with no problem.
    Is there any other player I should check ?
    Does anybody know if XSubs support is in development ?

    I don`t know, have you tried all of the media players? maybe there is one that support divx Xsubs.. but im not sure.. [​IMG] (you can use the "Homebrew Browser" to download all the mediaplayers! it`s the simplest way [​IMG] )

    well...
    I justed tested every available player in the Homebrew Browser and non played the subs.
    Strangely, it appears that no one wrote a player which can show these subs, as it solve quite easily encoding and code-page problems

    *.sub and Xsub I'm sure will never be supported on the Wii as they are bitmap that needs to be put on top of a video.

    I'm sad to hear that.
    Aren't DVD subtitles are bitmaps too?
    AFAIK Wii can play DVD movies.
