Hi Everyone!
I have Windows 10 OS Home installed on my notebook.
I have some English Video files along with their English .srt subtitles files.

However, by using Notepad, when trying opening some .srt subtitles files, I found that contents are unreadable although the audio files of all those Video files are English. Content was shown like this (This is part of the content of .srt file opening with Notepad to only show you what I mean with unreadable content)

I even don't think that that above content is written in any language.

On the other hand, I have other English Video files along with their English .srt subtitles files.
And when opening .srt subtitles files, I found contents are shown in readable contents.

Bear in mind that neither AVI video files, nor their subtitles are my own. However, they all were downloaded from the internet.

I decided to Add External SRT Subtitles to its Video file, whatever the result.
So, using Any Video converter program, I added the AVI video file, along with its .srt subtitles file shown in an unreadable content while opened with Notepad stated in the beginning of this thread. Then I began converting the file. However, I found output file was played well, however, subtitles are shown in an unreadable content, something like this in screen shot below:



Using the same Any Video Converter, I dded another AVI video file, along with its .srt subtitles file shown with a readable way while opened with Notepad. Then I began converting the file. However, I found output file was played well and subtitles were shown in a readable content.

As a result, do you think all those .srt subtitles NOT shown in unreadable contents using Notepad are corrupted or the faulty in the Windows 10 OS. But if the issue was with Windows 10 OS, then all .srt subtitles files would be shown in unreadable contents.

It's Unicode but I doubt you will get much help here if it's pirated films or subs

Thanks a lot,
NOT at all. They are not pirated films. They are all downloaded from a university forum via trounet while I was studying in a university in KSA. All of them were download about five years ago. All those films are available to be downloaded for free.
I am NOT lying to you? Could you please help me let the subtitles be readable?
NOT all those .sft subtitles shown in unreadable contents using Notepad. However, only some of them. So, I am expecting those files are corrupted or the faulty in the Windows 10 OS. But if the issue was with Windows 10 OS, then all .sft subtitles files would be shown in unreadable contents.
