Your emergency is not our problem. Nobody gets paid to answer your questions. Asking us to answer your questions as soon as possible is not only a bit rude, it may actually make people not want to help you. Other people have problems too and want help and they don't ask us to answer them as soon as possible.
Some programs that can play videos have an option to take a screenshot. I know that older versions of PowerDVD can do this. VLC might also be able to do this. I don't know about MPC.

Anyway, thanks for your message, i think im gonna stick to vlc media player anyway. i think its the only easiest multimedia player out there to use.
Do you have DirectVobSub/vsfilter installed?
For taking snapshots in Media Player Classic/MPC-HC, go to File > Save Image... (or hit Alt+I). You'll have the option to decide whether you want the snapshot in BMP, JPEG or PNG format when the Save As box pops up (use the Save as type: dropdown).If cameras add ten pounds, why would people want to eat them?

If they are not in a Western European language that uses the Latin alphabet, what character set are they in? You may not know the character set, but if you do it can be helpful to mention that.
How did you get the subtitles file? Did you create it yourself or download it from somewhere? Is there any chance that it was created on a non-Windows (ie. Mac or Linux) system? I've seen weird problems on DVD players with SRT files when the SRT file was edited on Linux. The because the end of line character is different between Linux and Windows.
Unicode can be a problem with some programs, but I think that Unicode subs should work OK. Not sure, but I think so.

Another user here on this forum had the same problem as me, he used a software tool called VobSub or something, i tried that but still didnt work. Anyway im using Windows XP. Thanks for your reply.
Have your run both MPC and MPCHC? They both use the same registry key for subtitle settings but the values are incompatible. After running MPCHC the location, colors, etc of the subtitles are wrong in MPC and they may be rendered completely outside the window (so you don't see them). Try deleting \HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Gabest\Media Player Classic\Settings\SPDefaultStyle in the Registry. MPC will reset the defaults when started.

If its greyed out. then click File then subtitles. if you have the subtitle file already. then you can load it or you can have MPC do a subtitle search. then pick the one you want and it downloads it. it will use it upon playback.

to have MPC auto look up subtitles of your choice. you have to check off the unchecked ones for the databases to look up from.

and then you can setup MPC to auto load subtitles of your choice by adding .;.\subtitles;.\subs\en to the autoload paths. this is telling MPC to autoload english subtitles on every video played. replace en with your language choice by using 2 letter abbreviation of language choice
