Step 1. Install MPlayer

In the absence of an appropriate program, its installation in the vast majority of cases will fix the problem. Below is a list of programs that support the file MPSUB.

Step 2. Create association of MPlayer with MPSUB files

However, it may happen that the application itself does not cause the MPSUB file to open in the MPlayer application, but you can set it manually. It is most convenient to call the context menu with the right mouse button and select Properties. The window will show, among other things, the type of the file and the information by which the program is used to launch the file. Changes can be made using the "Change" button. The program should be visible in the window, otherwise it should be selected manually using the "Browse" button and the program installation directory should be indicated. Checking the "Always use the selected program ..." box will permanently associate the MPSUB file with the MPlayer program.

Step 3. Update MPlayer to the latest version

The fault may also lie with the MPlayer program, it is possible that MPlayer Subtitles Format requires a newer version of the program. This can be done using the application (if it provides such options) or from the The MPlayer Team website and install the latest version.

Step 4. Check for the following problems with the MPSUB file

Of course, it may happen that despite the above steps, the file still does not work. This could be due to the file itself, the cleanest issues are:

The affected file may be 0 KB or smaller than expected. Usually this applies to MPSUB files downloaded from the Internet in case the download did not finish properly. The file should be downloaded again, making sure that the process has finished correctly.
The computer may have fallen victim to a computer virus or hacker. A virus scan using an up-to-date antivirus program should fix the problem. Alternatively, you can use the scanners available online. However, it is important to scan the entire system, not only the file MPSUB or the program directory. However, remember that not every infected MPSUB file can be recovered, so it is important to take care of regular backups.
Older version of MPSUB file may not always be supported by the latest software version. On their websites, developers usually offer free solutions to such problems, e.g. in the form of a conversion program or an older version of the program.
There can be many reasons for this. The repair method must be adapted to the type of file and damage. Sometimes the program itself has options to repair the most popular MPSUB file corruption. You can restore the file from a backup or use MPlayer help.
The program can also signal the fact of encryption. The encrypted MPSUB files can be used by the device on which they were encrypted, on any other device it is required to have the appropriate cryptographic key and decrypt the file before its recovery.
Some of the system directories are excluded from modification. These directories are write-protected to them and it's very hard to fix this problem. It is best to move MPSUB to a different directory.
This problem usually affects more complex files. You may find that another program you are using is preventing you from working with the file. Running programs (including those in the background) should be verified. Sometimes you have to wait for the session to the file MPSUB to close. Antivirus programs or a backup being made may lock the file for a while without the user's knowledge. If the problem persists, restart the machine.
