Installing Jubler on Windows

Software name : Jubler
Homepage : http://jubler.org/
Software version used for this installation : 3.9
Operating System use for this installation : Microsoft Windows (XP)
Recommended Hardware : 200 Mhz processor (CPU) minimum 

Note : Jubler can be tricky to install. If at any point you get stuck installing Jubler then one tip is to try the freeware Subtitle Workshop instead as it is easier to install but not as feature rich. Jubler requires MPlayer and Aspell to play video files and spell check subtitles. Before proceeding with this installation first install these two applications. If you need some help we have provided information on how to install MPlayer and Aspell (in the sections after installing Jubler - you can follow the process exactly as see below, installing first Jubler and then MPlayer an then Aspell.


Go to the Jubler download page http://jubler.org/download/index.html


Click on "Visit this page on SourceForge" and you will see something like this:


Click on "Download Jubler-3.9.0.exe" (the green button) and Jubler should start downloading to your hard drive. I am using Firefox (a type of browser) to download Jubler so I first see this window:


I press 'Save File' and then when the download is completed I see this:


If you are using another browser like Internet Explorer or Opera then the above two steps would be slightly different. 

Now you must know where the file has downloaded to. I always save my files to the Desktop so when I look there I see the installer file I just downloaded:


Double click on the icon to start the install process. The first screen you should see is this :


Click "Next >" and you see the following :

install jubler licence

Put a tick in the "I accept the terms of the Licence Agreement" box and click "Next >":

install components

Leave the above set with the defaults and click "Next >":


Click "Install" and the installer will start doing its magic. If you do not have Java Runtime Environment (also just called 'Java') installed then the installer will download and install it for you (if Java is already installed then you will not see the following installation screens for Java). In this case you will see something like this:


When Java is downloaded you need to accept the license agreement from the pop-up window that appears:


Just press "Accept >" and you will see the progress bar displayed for the installation process of Java:


Click "Finish" and then the last screen should appear:


Click "Finish" and then start the programme from the Start Menu or from the icon on the Desktop.
