    Steps to open idx files in Mac?

    I remember opening up the movie file with the subtitle before but now it doesn't work at all and the subtitle file is .idx file.

    So can you please give me the steps to open up the .idx file and make it work with the video as subtitles? It will be highly appreciable if you can give the solution soon.

    Thank you.

    Dear Guest,

    You can use Mplayer to play .isx files as subtitles,

    make sure to rename your subtitle file to the same name as the video file.

    Download Link for Mplayer(http://mplayerosx.sourceforge.net/)

    other wise if you have access to any machine running in windows then you can use the software VOBSUB(Link: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Multime...s/VobSub.shtml)

    Download and install ,it can convert your subtitle(.idx) to subtitle(.srt)

    then you can again use it in your mac.

    And you can also use this windows application in mac using WINE(Link:http://winebottler.kronenberg.org/)

    Install wine and Install VOBSUB then convert.

    Dear Friend..

    No need to worry for opening idx files,
    These files require a player or you can say a support software for playing these files.
    idx files are quite similar to SUB files,
    The name of that player are:

    1. VLC:-VideoLAN VLC media player http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

    2. URUWorks Subtitle Workshop

    Both the players are able to open idx files and compatible in Mac as well,
    Now you will not fave any issue for playing these files,

    Hope i help you,
    Thank you.

    The idx files are not able to open directly but you can open this files while playing the related media file.
    That's means that this idx files are subtiles files for a particular media file only.For opening this follow the below things.
