This is a project I did back in 2009 to allow me use SRT files that were totally out of sync by manually displaying them line by line.
It uses Java Native Interface (JNI) calls in C to instruct Windows/Mac OS X to hide system toolbars (start menu, etc) and displays on top of your media player.
It is set up as an Eclipse project and you can build it from there.
- Open your movie in whatever media player you like.
- Switch to SubtitleViewer and open your SRT file.
- Start your movie and switch back to SubtitleViewer.
- Press escape to quit, left arrow to go back a line, and any other key to proceed.
I have used this on my MacBook Pro with an Apple Remote quite successfully, but it certainly is no fun to flick through each subtitle manually.
