Use a VLC player . Just install and open the file with VLC, you can select sub and language, from "Video" and "Audio"

Easy To Use, doesnt need codec or anything

Use VLC and most groups will frown at you when asking for support since it doesn't play all files properly... :/

Use the instructions in the link that Arimfe posted.

Not only will you be frowned upon, but a large number of subs you find in H264 will be soft-subbed, which VLC has problems decoding.

VLC had played all files property with no problem, havent seen a file that VLC can't run (Depend on your computer that what codec,etc you have downloaded.) But i think just read the link that Arimfe gave to you.

@Takemaru: I suggest you take the time to read a few other threads in here, and you will find that there are indeed files that VLC does not handle properly.
Also, VLC uses internal codecs and can NOT use Windows DirectShow codecs.

Quick recap: files that contain H.264 video are commonly contained in MKV files. MKV files may possibly contain "soft-subtitles" in SSA/ASS or SRT format. For example all H.264/MKV files by Eclipse (Kanon, Pumpkin Scissors) have ASS and SRT format "soft" subtitles.

VLC support for soft-subtitles, especially SSA/ASS support is crap at the moment.

It it is for that reason that recommending VLC is not wise.

Which btw, is something I have included in the [READ ME FIRST] How do I get this fansub to play? sticky a few weeks ago.

h264 codec

Im not sure if I should create new thread. So, I post here.

Any suggestion for best h264 codec? (for playback).
- least CPU usage
- fastest

CoreAVC, no competition. Has some blocking issues though. If you can use lavc (CCCP/ffdshow/mplayer).

I recommend using a build of FFDShow that makes use of your hardware optimizations. For example, when I received a Pentium M laptop, I put an SSE2-optimized build of FFDShow onto it. That dropped processor usage pretty dramatically. I also linked my media player to a different overlay mode, which further dropped processor usage.

Enabling YV12 can also knock some processor strain off. Those are just my experiences with my hardware configurations; you should experiment with yours and see how it goes. Following what I did exactly may render videos unplayable for you, though, so when you're making changes, keep track of what you're doing (and what your original settings were) so that you can always go back in case something messes up.

ffdshow builds with SSE optimizations have proven to have insignificant speed differences in decoding. It doesn't matter which you get, just that you get one from a trustable source. Doesn't matter if you get one that is SSE2 "optimized" or for just MMX.

CoreAVC is extremely recommendable, though I don't seem able to run avi-contained h264 with it... need to use FFDshow for that one.

Nobody seems to have pointed out that CoreAVC isn't free... Though to paraphrase the CCCP Wiki, it's cheaper to spend $15 on a codec than $500 on a new computer, so if you want to give it a try, by all means go for it. It should let you play H.264 on an older machine, assuming your processor speed's at least decent, and you turn off deblocking/deinterlacing.

Would it be possible for you to link me to the proof? This runs counter to my own personal experiences, and I can't really think of any other explanation for what I've seen on my systems.
