Configuring MPC-HC for easy Anime watching

Whilst watching some Anime recently, I got a bit annoyed that the default language was always set to English, so I had to change the language, and fixed the subtitles every 20 minutes or so which got super annoying.

I eventually found a fix.

Right Click -> Options -> Playback -> Default track preference

Set the number to the "Subtitles" number to the order of the option you prefer at the bottom of the Right Click -> Subtitle Track list, and the "Audio" option to "jpn"

  2. Thanks dude I was trying for a solid two hours to type eng/english/en in the subtitles area with different punctuations and capitalizations. This really helped! Though just to clarify the 1 option selects the first subtitles option loaded rather than true default english. For example, outlaw star I was watching had signs loaded seperately and before the english soft subs so mpc wasnt reading the subs until I used 2 as the option.

    1. Yea - It is a little weird that the short form of languages don't seem to work for the subtitles - I had the same issue :)

      I did state that the number is relative to the position in the subtitle list, although maybe wasn't as clear as I could have been.

      Glad it helped!

  3. Any ideas why this wouldn't work?

    I have known of this for a long time and had no issues with it on my old laptop with win7 but it just doesn't want to work on my new PC with win10.

    1. There's an option above by dukun that you need to select "allow overriding external splitter choice" for it to work. Otherwise, I have no idea. I'm using Windows 10 in this.

    2. try Option > Internal filters > Splitter > Audio > jpn
      This should fix the problem.
