Help! Problems with adding subtitle : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

Plese help.

I make SVCD with TMPGEnc and then burn it with Nero. The result is so good thet i'm really proud of my work but...

I have a serius problems with adding subtitle.

I tried to add it with VirtualDub which accepted the file but when I recompres there is no subtitle or I cannot find it. Tell me please, does VirtualDub actually adds the subtitle but I cannot see it because I tried to see it on an file that is not a SVCD or should I wait to Burn the SVCD and then find the subtitle.

If you offer me a good softwer to do thet tell me please how to do it.

I wish U well

Answers has some subtitling software that may help you. There are many problems with SVCD subtitles. Some DVD players don't recognize them. There are 2 different ways to make them and some DVD players only recognize one format. Finally, I don't know if any software DVD players for the PC will play them or not. I did notice that if I made a subtitled SVCD I could not burn it as a BIN/CUE image or the subtitles never played on my DVD player. I had to load the SVCD video file directly into Nero using the SVCD template to get it to work. I don't have a lot of experience with this as I basically abandoned SVCD last year. I consider it a dead format now that DVD burners have dropped in price. There are some people at who still work with it. Technically this is a VCD forum and a SVCD question is a bit off topic for us.

Are you using Substation? Because I'm pretty sure it worked for me.
