    Some AVI video have permanent subtitles burned onto them - you play the AVI and you see the subtitles- whether you want to or not.

    It's possible to download a subtitle for a particular movie from a site.
    http://divxsubtitles.net/page_subtitleinformation.php?ID=61385

    The way it works is, the AVI files name and the name of the subtitle file are the same (except for the file extension), viz:

    myfilm.avi
    myfilm.srt

    Both files are burned to a DVD data disk (not authored as a DVD movie) and your standalone, DivX compatible, player will use the subtitles (when you turn them on with the remote).

    The other way is to convert the AVI file to a DVD and add subtitles.
    This is more involved than simply burning the AVI and sub file to a DVD disk.
