Getting subtitles to play.
You should keep your movie and your subtitles both in the SAME folder, a lot of the times your media player will pick up the subtitles (otherwise you have to go to the subtitle options in your media player and select the subtitle files manually).

An alternate method to playing subtitles is DirectVobSub. Once you install this application all you have to do is make sure the filename of the movie and the name of the subtitle file are the same (except for the extension of course).

Note: if you can't find the subtitle file that exactly matches the movie file, it will save you some work to download a subtitle that uses the same frame rate as the movie. You can then use SubMax or Subtitle Tool to get the subtitles in sync with the movie.
