Video - Special characters in subtitles are not displayed

Ask a question


The special characters (é, è, à, ù, ç..) in of my subtitles (.srt) are not displayed, instead there's an empty space. Is there any solution to convert the subtitles or there any specific settings that must be adjusted in my video softwares.


Simply open the .srt subtitle file with notepad:
1 - File> Save As ...
2 - In "Encoding" choose UTF-8
3 - Save

Thanks to Momo for this tip.
