    Hi!

    I'm trying to add subtitles to my movie clip with dvdauthor::spumux but I can't get it work properly because video players (totem, kino, mplayer) doesn't even recognize the clip after trying to add subtitles with spumux. Before trying to add subtitles the clip works fine with video players. What's wrong? Thanks for any help!

    The command I use is spumux -s0 subtitle.xml < vcd.mpg > subtitled.mpg and the result is:

    DVDAuthor::spumux, version 0.6.10.
    Build options: gnugetopt magick iconv freetype
    Send bugs to <dvdauthor-users@lists.sourceforge.net>

    I'm no spumux expert but I had the same problem and seemed to be because of non-standard MPEG streams. Spumux seems to not like MPEGs that don't adhere to a standard such as DVD, SVCD or VCD. You might also try adding a "-m vcd" to the command line to narrow the error posibilities. Still, I haven't got it to work fully but I got rid of that error message :p

    Good luck!
