Joining Jools for the music show are Glasgow's favourite art school rockers Franz Ferdinand, with songs from their most recent album Tonight. British ska legends The Specials, who recently announced they are reforming to celebrate their 30th anniversary, perform a selection of their classic songs. American singer-songwriter Carole King makes her first UK TV performance since 1971, performing tracks from her seminal album Tapestry. Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Mummers and Karima Francis also guest.
A dual core processor helps when playing MKV/x264.
If your not sure try first downloading a small MKV/x264 file and try to play it.
Check the CPU Usage - if it reaches 100% then buy a new computer.
Subtitles tested with VLC and Media Player Classic - they're disabled by default.
To get subtitles working in Media Player Classic switch to VMR7 (renderless) mode.
View->Options->Playback->Output and tick "VMR7 (renderless)" and hit Apply and OK.
Close down and restart Media Player Classic and play the MKV file - then goto:
VMR9 renderless mode doesn't work for me - I just get a blank screen.
My processor spec: E8200, Windows XP, NVidia 8300 GS, DirectX 9.0c
For help try - http://forum.videohelp.com/topic267678.html
VLC is a bit simpler - just goto:
Video->Subtitle Track->Track 1 English
Subtitles don't work with Windows Media Player or Winamp - the video & audio are ok though.
Should play on MacOSX or Linux using VLC but haven't tested either.
Also haven't tested it on Perian (MacOSX) or Totem (Linux) players.
