It's probably the most popular subtitles format, how come the subtitles (.txt. .sub) are ignored by the player?

To be exact, I mean frame based format {yyy}{xxx}

Same problem with v1.02.21.
With .sub extension WD shows "No subtitles".
When I change the extension to .srt WD  let's you select that subtitle but doesn't show any lines.

Everything works if I convert the microDVD .sub format to Subrip .srt (with TimeAdjuster or Subtitle Workshop).

I bought this on monday and this pisses me off because it says on the box that SUB is supported.

In manual it says that you can convert a subtitle that has been saved in another format by using the Notepad's Save as function with parametres "File Type All Files and Encoding UTF-8." This doesn't help.
