Subtitles still don't appear to work in the video player, I have read the other two questions on this site, but neither have a fix.

I am using an external srt subtitle file that works on windows using VLC.

File a bug report at the relevant Github repo elementary/videos.

Alternatively there is an issue already open Audience doesn't show subtitles here. Try renaming the subtitles to match the video file exactly.
