Load subtitles in Windows Media Player 12 on Windows 7

RECOMMENDED: Click here to fix Windows errors and optimize system performance

You can find many players that can play videos and upload subtitles with them. But most Windows enthusiasts still like to use Windows Media Player to watch movies, listen to music, and so on. One of the main problems encountered by most users with WMP is loading subtitles.

We are tired of complicated corrections and patches like renaming DLLs, patching EXE to make subtitles work, etc…. Some may have worked, but most of these processes are dangerous because they can switch the player to other installed codecs.

I found an easy and hassle-free way to run subtitles on Windows Media Player.
