When you download VLC media player, you will end up with a VLC-0.5.x.dmg file. Double-click, or drop it on the application Disk Copy, to open this file. An icon will now appear on your Desktop, right beside your drive(s). Open it and drag the VLC application from the resulting window to the place where you want to install it. Most often this is the directory Applications on your main harddrive.\

\f0\b0 \ulnone Support for subtitles in separate files is still very much in a testing phase.\
- DVD subtitles (not experimental) can be used trough the Controls->Subtitles menu-item. Subtitle files NOT. Read on for those.\
- Subfiles need to be opened at the same moment as the video to which you want to add subtitles. You can do this in the File->Open menu.\
- As of yet it is not yet possible to adapt the font, size and/or position of the subtitles.\
- You need to specify the subtitle when you open the file.\
- A subtitle is global instead of bound to a playlist-item. This will be fixed in a future version.\
- Only MicroDVD, SubRIP, SSA1-4. SAMI and vplayer subtitle files are supported at the moment.\
- Subs can only be added to .avi and .ogm movie files at the moment.\
- You cannot change the size of the subtitles.\
- Don't bug us asking for the features mentioned above, they are coming.\
