10.5: View subtitles in Quick Look System 10.5
Last year my wife and I returned from Thailand with some Bollywood movies we bought at a market. They aren't on DVD—some are on regular CD-ROMs (a mix of VCDs and regular CDs), complete with .avi files and .srt subtitle files, which we can play with VLC Player. However, I noticed that if the .avi and .srt files are in the same folder, and you press the space bar to preview the movie, Quick Look will show the subtitles in the movie. Previously I thought only VLC Player & QuickTime could do this. Quick Look even does this after I convert the .avi files to .m4v files.

It works only if you have Perian installed which QuickLook uses when it asks Quicktime to decode the video.

This is only thanks to the third-party QuickTime plug-in called Perian.
