    For a movie to play with subtitles (that aren't embedded) the file needs to be names EXACTLY like the movie fire, except for the ending.

    Based on your link:
    1) Download the file
    2) double click the .zip file, it should open and unstuff on it's own. [Fresa.y.chocolate.aka.Strawberry.and.Chocolate.1994.srt]
    3) move the .srt file into the same folder as the movie
    4) copy the name of the movie (except for the ending .mov/.mp4/.avi/etc) [for example: Strawberry+Chocolate.1994.mov]
    5) Paste that into the name of the .srt file (keeping the .srt ending) [Strawberry+Chocolate.1994.srt]
    6) Play movie and enjoy subtitles.
