VLC player not displaying Cyrillic subtitles correctly
As the title states, VLC player displays Russian subtitles as question marks. I've changed the text encoding to Cyrillic (Windows-1251), UTF-8 autodetection and Formatted Subtitles both checked. The subs are .srt format.

The video file is HD and is an MKV file, that's why I used VLC. Any ideas? I already tried downgrading to version 1.1.

Try this:

Navigate to Preferences --> Subtitles & OSD in VLC and choose the following values:

Default encoding: GB18030
Display Settings, Font Arial Unicode MS

Couldn't find this encoding. They all go by name. What's the name of GB18030?
