Glad to hear that it works for you :)

Checked out reelbox plugin 9053 and I still have the problem.
When and where was this fixed? Should I re-install all reelbox files?

If I want to apply a quick fix, how can I delay the subtitles?
The subtitles seems to be 6-7 seconds too early.
I have recorded a very good German film that I'd like to watch, but
my German is still not good enough so sometimes I need a little 
help from the subtitles to be able to follow the plot

Having said that, a setting that would enable me to always have the
subtitles delayed a little would be a very nice feature. This would
help me improve my German. When watching German films I could always
first try to understand the speech and when there is something that I 
don't understand I could read the subtitles.
