PowerDVD requires the subtitle files to be in the same directory on your drive.

Subtitles can enhance video for users who are hearing-impaired or watch media produced in a foreign language. In many cases, subtitles are not hard-coded into the video and you may need to download them from a separate source. To view external subtitles in PowerDVD you will need to move them into your video directory while ensuring the names of both your video and subtitle files match.
