    junk characters

    I don't even know if junk characters is the proper term in English but here's the situation: I download subtitles in Russian from http://subs.com.ru and when I open them in VLC they display as junk, symbols that don't belong to any alphabet. So basically I want to say, "when I open Russian subtitles I get junk characters."
    Thanks!

    P.S. if anyone knows how to solve this problem let me know. I never had a problem with subtitry.ru but on subs.com.ru it's not working. The srt files open properly in wordpad but when I put them in VLC they display as junk.

    I do not claim that my opinion is absolutely true.
    If you've spotted any mistake in my English, please, correct it. I want to be aware of any mistakes to efficiently eliminate them before they become a habit.

    You can try to open srt file in wordpad and then "File" - "Save as..." - "Text document in Unicode" with the same filename.
    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?
