For some reason my subtitles started to appear twice in my Media Player Classic (MPC) screen. I obviously did something wrong but how to repair it? MPC has dozens of settings and then there are all the different codecs with their settings. Fortunately I found the solution.
One reason can be that your video file has subtitles embedded AND you’re having a separate subtitles file which is being opened.
For me this was not the case as I did not have a separate subtitles file. The subtitles were enabled in Media Player Classic:
The Video Codec however was also opening the subtitles:
In this case the FFDShow Video Decoder. So I unmarked the “Subtitles” option in the settings menu and all from now on only the MPC player itself is presenting the subtitles.
