When I try play a .mkv video file in any player like VLC Player, GOM player or KMPlayer (not even on drag and drop), subtitles with .srt extension are not working for these video files in my Windows 7 machine.

What can be the possible reason for this behaviour?

Are we to assume you are using Linux? How are you loading the subtitles? Is the problem that you have foo.mkv and in the same directory and they are not loaded automatically? – terdon Sep 29 '13 at 18:13
@terdon, I updated the OS in question. The way in your comment is not working + it even doesn't work if I drag and drop (KMPlayer has an option to do so) as well. – RinoTom Sep 30 '13 at 2:34
