Greenfish Subtitle Player is a handy software that is used to play subtitles in transparent window. It supports *.srt files to play them with its black transparent window. Its main use is that you can put the transparent window on any video player that doesn’t support subtitles. Even more, you can use this subtitle player to play subtitles with online streaming videos together. There are many video players, like ESFSoft Media Player and Toolwiz Player, that come with good features, but don’t support subtitles. With those players, you can use this subtitle player and can play your favorite video/movie with subtitles.
Greenfish Subtitle Player also comes with its adjustable size window. Moreover, you can also forward/backward subtitles to make them sync properly with playing video or movie.
In above screenshot, you could see that black transparent window playing subtitles added by me.
What makes it more interesting is that if you move mouse cursor from that window, than all its controls will hide automatically. Only subtitles will be visible to you on that window, just like visible in screenshot below. This will look like subtitles are attached with that particular video.

It is a portable subtitle player which doesn’t require installation. To use this software, download the zip file available on its homepage. Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 is also needed to work with this player successfully. Use the link I have placed at the end of this review to download it.

Now you have to perform two tasks. First one is to add your favorite video or movie’s subtitles in this window. Use Open button to add .srt file of your favorite video available on your PC. Second task is to play that video online or on your media player. If you want to download subtitles first, then Subtitle Hub and subscene.com could be useful websites to find subtitles.

If playing video and subtitles are not in proper sync, then you can even use forward and backward buttons to perfectly sync playing subtitles with video.
Greenfish Subtitle Player is quite good software. It is one of the lightweight software as well. You can use it with online streaming websites and with video players too. Even if you are listening to an audio song, you can use it to play subtitles of that song separately. However, what I except with this subtitle player is that it should let users adjust the transparency by providing an option or slider. It could be even good if its window can be made completely invisible to make only subtitles visible.
