    When I watch a video with external subtitles in a external player (VLC, bsplayer, etc), the filename of the subtitles can be "videofilename +", and it will be recognized

    video--- Blade runner.avi
    subtitles--- Blade Runner [XVID][AC3]

    video--- Lost 3x04.avi
    subtitles--- Lost 3x04 - Cabin

    But when I watch the same videos inside MP, the filename has to be exactly the same. Only the language extension is recognized:

    Lost 3x04.avi
    Lost --- recognized
    Lost 3x04 - Cabin --- not recognized

    Any idea about this?
