Having issues getting subs

posted in General, viewed 1182 times

Ok I am kinda a noob at this so help would be greatly appreciated.

So I am starting with an mkv file. I have winavi to convert it to svcd format, but the thing is i cant get the subs to go on to my svcd that I make. I have mkv merge but I cant get it to put the subs in by default so they show up on my svcd when i play it.

I know its probably really easy, its just after playing around for about an hour i still cant get it.

Any help would be appreciated, Thanks. reply

I’m not sure if WinAvi can add subs to a Matroska file but here is a link to VirtualDubMod how to do it. First try to play the file with VLC and keep the subs in the same folder with the mkv and check if the subs works. http://www.doom9.org/index.html?/vdubmod-procedures.htm

I not sure we are on the same page, my mkv file already has subs in it i can open it with vlc and if i go into the options i can turn them on. But whenever i convert it to svcd i cant get the subs to go along with the audio and video.

I opened the mkv with mkvmerge and i see the 4 parts or whatever I have tried tuning default track checkbox on but when i convert the subs still are not there.

Again i am very new to this video stuff so it may be me not understanding, but i figured i would clearify my issue. reply

http://www.videohelp.com/tools?tool=MKVExtractGUI is a guide to a tools to extract the subs from your file so you can add it to a converted file with the first link I gave you. As I said before I’m not sure about WinAvi and seems like you loose the subs after convertion. Here is another link to Santa and that works for sure with Matroska. http://www.matroska.org/technical/guides/dvd/index.html So now you’re on your own page and have fun. reply

If you see my other posts dotted around this you will notice that I mention AllToAvi a lot. I have found this programme very usefull for converting random filetypes at whatnot. (http://alltoavi.sourceforge.net/index.php)

Anyway...

Using this, you can simply select the subtitle file whn you convert the file. This will hardcode the subtitles into the video file. Then simply convert it to SVCD as you did before.

PS. Why SVCD? Surely DVD would be a better idea?

Hope this helps,
