View Full Version : Subtitles and re-encoding

25th February 2002, 14:09
I'm not sure I'm posting in the right forum... if not, please excuse-me ;-)
I can't extract the subtitles in GKnot ; it doesn't work with any DVD. So I use Subrip and then I insert the subtitles in VDub or Nandub. Then I guess I have to recompress the whole movie.
Is there a way to prevent compressing twice the movie?
Please let me know how you do that ;-)

Take care

Why extracting subtitles do not work?? Could you be more specific??? Give us some more info.
You can always have subtitiles in a separate file and use DirectVobSub or DivxG400 for displaying them in any player.
If you want to have permanent subtitles you can always use VritualDub's Subtitiler filter.

1. When I click on vobsub configure in GKnot, it opens a new window. Then, I click on Open and I select either the ifo file. It asks me where I want to save the result. I should then get the different languages but it stops instead.
Nothing happens even if I wait for hours and hours.
I've installed vobsub but I can"t understand why it doesn't work.

2. Yes, I want to have permanent subtitles. So, I have to recompress the whole movie in full processing mode, once I have applied the filter. This means two compressions (and loss quality I guess).

Thanks for your comments and ideas ;-)

Take care
