    Ok, I'm sure someone's posted these questions before and I know the answers are in the manuals...somewhere. I can't seem to find the answers to my questions though. So here it goes. Any help will be appreciated. I have two questions:
    1) How do I get subtitles onto my avi's?
    2) How do I split the avi's into smaller files so I can fit them on CD?

    Right now I am using vobdec gui and flask mpeg. if I am using the incorrect software to do what I want, please give me more information on what I need to get. By the way, I am able to rip DVD's and get them into AVI's just fine, I just need help on my two questions. Thanks

    1) Subtitles are ripped using SubRip and converted to SRT format. An SRT file is just a text file with time codes & corresponding subtitle information. You need to use a DivX player capable of viewinging them in order to actually see the subtitles imposed on the picture. DivX Digest has a good subtitle ripping guide available at http://www.digital-digest.com/nickyguides/subtitles.htm

    2) You can use Virtualdub http://www.afterdawn.com/software/specific.cfm?id=149 to split an AVI file. Just choose "Direct stream copy" for both video and audio, select the range you want to copy, and hit "Save as AVI.."
