I want to hardcode subs to avi for stand alone DVD player. I used AVI ReComp 1.5.5, It installed Vobsub 2.23, AviSynth 2.3, Xvid codec already installed. I used the accompanying srt file. AVI ReComp re encoded the avi with the subs, played on PC. Then used ConvertX5 to convert that subtitled avi to DVD for stand alone player. That rendered video had no visible subs, even in VLC. So I just added the srt file to another ConvertX project, I could see the subs in the preview. After conversion and burn, The subs are visible on PC. (though way to big but thats another problem. Trying convert the srt to ssa was a descent into hell) so Im sticking to the original problem, no visible subs on stand alone DVD player. WTF am I doing wrong?
