    I find that this program is fussy about the path.I place the folder in the root directory (c:\)

    The alternative is to hard code the subs to the AVI with VirtualDub.
    It's not hard but takes some effort.

    When i open the file i get the following error:
    "Couldn't locate decompressor for format XVID (unknown)

    Virtual Dub requires a Video For Windows(VFW) compatible codec to decompress video. DirectShow codecs, such as those used by Windows Media Player, are not suitable"
