The easiest solution:
Play the DVD with Media Player Classic and load the subtitles from File->Load Subtitles.
In MPC (Media Player Classic) under View / Option / Playback / Output :
Check VMR9 Renderless or VMR7 Renderless on DirectShow video.
Click ok, then close and re-start MPC.
Start DVD with MPC, then load subtitle in MPC. Voilà!
You can also use your favorite player together with vobsub or ffdshow. Both allow for manual loading of subtitles together with whatever video you are playing.
One of our users, Noooneh,
made a little tutorial video about this topic and uploaded it on
youtube. I think that leaves no questions about displaying external
subtitles with a DVD unanswered. Thank you, Noooneh.
I can't embed the video here, so this is the link to youtube:
