I found an easy and mostly working way to embed subtitles in movies (this after 4 days of trying all kind of other solutionas that didn't work for some reason or another. What you need is Ulead Video Studio 10 and DivXland Media Subtitler. (get them from softarchive.net if you want to.) Then take the subtitle file and movie and load them into Media Subtitler (many formats) to checjk syncronisation. (change if necessery) then save the subtitle file either in .srt or plain text (!) format. Open Ulead and open the movie into a new project. go to the "title" tab and choose "open subtitle" open the subtitle file and create the movie in any standard you want (and Ulead supports) I found this the easiest and quickest way to do this. Enjoy!
