Failed to allocate subtitle surface


Hi Wayne, 

I believe the issue is with the current version of BS Player that you are using. Please upgrade the Player to the latest version. If this doesn't fix the problem, check whether the subtitles file is in .srt format. If it is, rename it such that it matches the video file name exactly.Both must be in the same folder. 

If all else fails, try VLC Media Player.
