downloaded avi file but turns out it is subtitled does anyone know of a way of removing them
Iwoudl think that yo ucan use oen of teh guides here, except skip the part about teh subtites and don't include them. Unless it is rigth encoded into the frames, in which case, it is impossible unless yoru a wizard with video editing.
I'm not sure that you can remove the subtitles when they're encoded into the video.
Try this http://www.afterdawn.com/guides/archive/extract_ac3_from_avi.cfm it says
Thanks Rhino but audio is a lot easier to remove than subtitles are.
if the subtitles arent in the image but under it or all the way at the bottom you can try this
1) Load the .AVI into VirtualDub (or one of its variants)
2) Set "Audio" to "Direct Stream Copying"
3) Set "Video" to "Full Processing Mode"
4) From under the "Video" dropdown menu, select "Compression" and select the same codec and settings that were used for the original .AVI
5) From under the "Video" dropdown menu, select "Filters"
6) Click on the "Add" radio button
7) Doubleclick on the "Null transform" filter
8) Click on the "Cropping" radio button
9) Enter the proper amount in the "Y2 offset" (at lower left) to cut off the subtitles
10) Click on "OK"
11) Click on the "Add" radio button
12) Doubleclick on the "Resize" filter
13) Under "New width and height" enter the NEW dimensions of your cropped video (e.g. 720x440)
14) Select "Precise bicubic"
15) Put a checkmark in "Expand frame and letterbox image"
16) Set "frame width" and "frame height" to the ORIGINAL dimensions (e.g. 720x480)
17) Click on "OK" (brings you back to primary "Filters" screen" and then click on "OK" (to get back to main VirtualDub screen)
18) From the "File" dropdown menu, select "Save AVI" and save with a NEW filename
