How to get rid of double subtitles in Media Player Classic

Media_Player_Classic_Home_Cinema 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:

Subtitles enabled in Media Player Classic
Subtitles enabled in Media Player Classic
MPC subtitle language selected
MPC subtitle language selected

The Video Codec however was also opening the subtitles:

FFDShow Video Decoder
FFDShow Video Decoder

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.

FFDShow Settings Subtitles
FFDShow Settings Subtitles
