    Is there anyway to add subtitles? As I've got a few films, where subtitles are hardcoded in a foreign language, and I could really do with the ability as and when to add English subtitles.

    Is this easy to do?

    Yep, it's quite easy to do! Just add the soft subs to the same folder as the movie itself, and name them both the same (case sensitive). For example, if you have "Movie name.mp4" (or .AVI or .MKV or whatever), place "Movie name.srt" (or .ASS or .SSA or .SUB or .SMI) in the same folder. Then when you play the movie, the subtitles ought to show right up, else you can turn 'em on/off via the Options button. You can also change the positioning of the subs, increase/decrease the display speed, change the font, add a border for better visibility etc. (see the manual for more).

    Bonus tip: If you'd like to have subs for more than one language, you can name the files as "Movie name.en.srt" and "Movie name.es.srt" (for English and Spanish respectively) or similar, and they'll all be available during playback of the video.

    P.S. There are many subtitle sites that you can use to search for subs to accompany your movie rips, such as http://www.opensubtitles.org

    P.P.S. Of course, the hard subs can't be removed and might cause visibility issues when the soft subs are overlaid on them. That's why it's always recommended that you obtain clean copies and use soft subs (which BTW are mostly plain text and can be edited in any text editor).
