Recently, I have downloaded some Ted talks (.flv and mp4) with subtitles (.srt files), I put the video and subtitle file in same folder but when play video the subtitle doesn't display, I am using jetAudio and Windows Media Player. (this first time I have used subtitles)

Rename the subtitles exactly as the video file. For example,


and try again.

Regarding video player, I recommend GOM Player.

You should try VLC. You'll have the option there under Video> Subtitles track

+1 for VLC. Rocks, plays just about any video, and wide range of subtitle support. Just make sure the filename part has the same name, just the different extensions – Rich Homolka Sep 27 '10 at 18:32
