yes it is possible using SubMux and DVobSub DS filter installed to display them on playback.. Though you can only mux srt files into the avi right now.. Just use SubRip to create the srt file.

It is probably because of the badly mixed mp3 audio track in the source avi.

It is probably because of the badly mixed mp3 audio track in the source avi. Could you please clarify, I've had the same problem. Audio was VBR mixed by GKnot. Should audio be only CBR?

By Avery Lee @ VirtualDub's news page (http://www186.pair.com/vdub/virtualdub_news.html) under 12/02/2001: How seeking in AVI really works, a.k.a. why your sync is off:

So everything is hunky dory and we can use VBR audio, right? Unfortunately, not really.

First, DirectShow's buffering does not seem to react very quickly to VBR audio, and if you have high variance in the audio stream, it can cause the video playback to suddenly speed up or slow down. Second, neither DirectShow nor AVIFile will write out an audio stream in this way, so nearly any other program will trash the AVI file when it's rewritten. DirectShow actually refuses to rewrite the stream with an "The data is invalid" error if you try using GraphEdit in a direct copy configuration (File reader -> AVI splitter -> AVI mux -> File writer), even though it works if you disconnect the audio stream or decompress it, or use a regular AVI file.

This reffers to nandub multiplexed mp3 audio, but as I noticed this "data is invalid" error happens quite often with other sources too.

Thanks, gabest. You should mention this in submux.txt, until now I thought it was submux's fault.

Btw, are there any chance that you will make DVobSub 2.06 installer?
