A few days ago, I downloaded and installed the DivX+ Codec Pack on my HP laptop. I watch foreign dramas in Windows Media Player and since 2009 had been using an older DivX codec version on this 64-bit computer. Since 2009, I've also always been running VobSub 2.23 to display the English subtitles (i.e, an .srt file) associated with an .avi file in Media Player. The new DivX+ Codec Pack does also work with VobSub 2.23 in Media Player. HOWEVER, the new DivX+ Codec, unlike the old DivX Codec version, no longer allows the subtitles (.srt file) to stay time sync'ed to the video (.avi file) WHEN or IF the video location is changed for any reason using the mouse, to advance or back-up in the movie via the on-screen slider bar in Media Player [see blue bar in attached .jpg photo]. The English subtitles (.srt file) lose their sync with their video (.avi file) location and simply reset/go back to the very beginning of the subtitles, no matter where you are in the movie. It seems to be a problem with the new DivX+ Codec because when I uninstalled it and went back to the old set-up, this problem went away. The problem came back again when I re-installed the new DivX+ Codec.
What might be done to resolve this problem? Is the problem most likely with..... DivX Codec? ........Windows Media Player? .........Windows 7 OS? Is there a setting or adjustment I can make that might fix this? I've spent hours trying to find one in all three items and have come up empty.
