    Hi,
    Usually when I play a movie in my PC some players enable to watch 2 different kinds of subtitles; 1) subtitles and 2) subitles for Deaf and Hearing impaired.

    Recently I purchaised from Amazon a DVD (of an old documentary movie).When I am playing it on my PC and select the "subtitles" option, it shows no subtitles; however, when I select the "subitles for Deaf and Hearing impaired" option it shows such (English) subtitles. The problem is, that when I am playing that DVD on my standalone DVD player it shows no subtitles (and there is no option to select "subitles for Deaf and Hearing impaired").

    I thought to solve the problem first by converting that DVD - including the said subtitles for impaired - to AVI with AutoGK, however AutoGK didn't recognize those subtitles. Next I tried to extract the said subtitles from the DVD with SubRip, however SubRip did recognize no subtitles in that movie.

    Any idea how to enable watching of those subtitles AutoGK with a standalone DVD player?

    Thanks in advance

    Is it possible that the subtitles are in line 21 format.
    If they are, then it's a setting on the TV that turns them on.

    If they are closed captions, CCExtractor can save them as .srt files.

    Hi attar and many thanks for your prompt and helpful answer.

    Indeed, the subtitles are closed caption and so CCExtractor saved them as srt.

    However - I don't know why - almost each sentence spoken in the movie appears in the srt in several lines. For example:

    9
    00:00:38,639 --> 00:00:40,138
    WEHRMACHT, BRINGING HOME THE
    HORRORS OF WAR TO THE GERMAN

    10
    00:00:40,173 --> 00:00:41,539
    HORRORS OF WAR TO THE GERMAN
    PEOPLE AS THEY HAVE NEVER

    11
    00:00:41,541 --> 00:00:41,572
    PEOPLE AS THEY HAVE NEVER

    12
    00:00:41,574 --> 00:00:48,713
    PEOPLE AS THEY HAVE NEVER
    EXPERIENCED IT BEFORE.

    13
    00:00:48,715 --> 00:00:48,746
    EXPERIENCED IT BEFORE.

    14
    00:00:48,748 --> 00:00:50,648
    EXPERIENCED IT BEFORE.
    THIS WAS THE ALLIED

    To fix this one must listen several times to each such sentence in order to decide which duplicates to remove. I am going to contact the author of the CCExtractor, maybe He would know what could be the reason of the said problem.

    Anyway, thanks again

    At the VideoHelp site, there is a frequent poster 'usually_quiet' who seems to have insight in the CC area.
    You might consider posting there.
