There are few problems,

1. With multiple subtitles streams , changing through subtitles sometimes make every subtitles blurry and need to restart playback to fix it. I think it is because of DSPlayer try to apply outline / shadow to graphic subtitles (Vobsub / PGS)
2. DSPlayer won't recognize Vobsub (IDX/SUB) as external subtitles file on network share . Internal player doesn't has this problem and pick up IDX/SUB properly.
3. DSPlayer subtitles won't follow subtitle location placement settings as in internal player. (Top Bottom Above Below won't make any change to result playback.)

It is still better than internal player regarding SSA / ASS subtitles rendering though.

good Sunday. greetings

It can be used per instruction from xy-vsfilter page.

XBMC Users: xy-VSFilter cannot be used with a default XBMC installation. Requires DSPlayer add-on for XBMC, libsubs.dll deleted from C:\..\XBMC\system\players\dsplayer\ , 'Use System Filters' enabled in DSPlayer Settings, setting all 'Preferred Decoders' to 'Use Merit' with Win7DSFilterTweaker, and having some basic 32-bit DirectShow Codecs installed (e.g. LAV Video + LAV Audio + Haali Media Splitter + xy-VSFilter).

It can be used but the major drawback would be unable to change through multiple subtitles stream. It would pick up the highest priority one and can't be change though XBMC interface , can't turn off subtitles too.
