i just have a simple question. how do you combine a .srt file and an avi file together?
Convert the .srt file with the application 'srt_ssa'.
Run VDubMod, 'File' > 'Open Video File' (to load the AVI).
'Video' > 'Full Processing Mode'
'Video' > 'Filters' press 'ADD' and select 'subtitler' then 'OK'
Browse to the saved .ssa file and open and 'ok', 'ok'.
'Video' > 'Compression' > 'Xvid MPEG-4 Codec', OK.
'File' >'Save As..'
Subtitler Just copy subtitler.vdf into the PLUGINS\ directory in the VirtualDubMod program directory
srt_ssa converter converts srt files to ssa for use in VirtualDub
Divx subtiles source for subtitles
iv added da subtitler filter and added mi .ssa file and done da compression, but no luck, i played the file and i don't see any subs. need more help??
Before saving the file, check it first.You should see the subs.
I added the subtitles just as you said but the sound does not sync, starting the movie it starts before the video while the movie is playing it goes delaying and at the half of the movie it is like 4 seconds after the video and at the end of the movie it syncs again and even gets beore the video again. Please i need help
All I can suggest is that if the original file has VBR audio is to save the audio as a WAV, disable the original audio and load the WAV file; convert it to CBR (Lame 3 MP3), select Direct Stream Copy for the video and re-save as a new file, then start again with the subtitles.
How i convert it to CBR
'File' > 'Open Video File'
'Streams > 'Stream List' > 'Save WAV' ...give it a name and save it.
Double click on the existing stream to disable it (hatch lines through it).
Click 'Add' > load the WAV .
Right click on it and select 'Full Processing Mode'
Right click again and 'Full Compression' then 'Compression'
Choose 'Lame MP3' '4800 128 CBR' > OK
'Video' > 'Direct Stream Copy'
'File' > 'Save AS...'
I stumbled onto some freeware at www.divx.trustfm.com.ru
It took about 5 min to merge the SRT file onto the AVI and it worked like a dream. It's called AviSub V2.1
BUT...it's used to place the subtitles into the AVI to be played from either a system or home DIVX player (which I have). You would then have to convert the final DIVX file to DVD format if you don't have one of those players.
One other FYI. When you load the AVI into the program, it seems to "freeze". Just ignore this, and it will go back to normal in a couple of minutes to load the SRT in.
I've used this on about 4-5 AVI's where I needed English subs, and so far it works seamlessly.
That just muxes avi's and subs to divx files with xsubs. In most cases it is easier just to leave it as an avi and an srt. Most hardware and software players will play it fine. Really comes down to whether the OP was talking about hard encoding or not though.
