How do I permanently add subtitles to avi files?
Hi all!
I'm kinda new to BSP (ver. 0.86-493).
I want to add subtitles to an avi movie, save it with the subs and then burn the movie (with nero or other apps) as VCD.
I can't figure out how to do that. Every time I add the subs to the movie I can watch it with subs, but when I save the file, it is saved without them (eventhough I marked "Draw subtitles to overlay surface").
What should I do?

if you use bsplayer for all your movies, then you have to easy ways to et your subs with the film:
1. give the same name to the movie and the subtitle file
( for example myfilm.avi and myfilm.sub or .srt or ... )
2. write a .bsi file ( ini file for bsplayer ) it's all explained in the bsplayer directory /doc/ini_files.html
here's an example:
let's call the file myfilm.bsi
here's what's in it:


Title=American Pie 2


Font=12;Arial Black;24;24


at the cd root put:

hope you find it useful

...and if you want a launcher with a BSPlayer to your CD, download BSCD.

With it you don`t need anything but the codec on your PC. And your CDs will be a lot easier to view. (autorun menu)

You may aslo follow this simple guide to add permament subtitles to AVI video

This guide also helps to add subtitles to MP4, MKV, MPG, MOV, WMV etc.

To permanently add subtitles to avi files, you need to hardcode subtitle file into video file. I'm sure some video conversion tool can do it, like VLC or handbrake, etc.

I use handbrake, a total free tool.
It enables me to add hard subtitles permanently or add soft one for turn on/off subtitles.
Here is the way to do it.

There are many kinds of subtitle formats: SRT, ASS, SSA, IDX, and SUB, etc today. One of the most widely used formats for subtitles is SRT (SubRip), which is supported by most video players, subtitle editing tools and some hardware home media players. Even YouTube supports .srt files.

SSA (Sub Station Alpha), is a subtitle format used by the famous subtitle editor, SubStation Alpha. It has an enormous amount of options including Karaoke, audio effects, graphic drawing etc. ASS, similar to SSA, is another popular subtitle format.

SubViewer (.sub) files are the native subtitle format of the SubViewer utility. SUB file usually comes from DVD subtitle, which contains subtitle images. Where there is a SUB file, there must be an IDX file. IDX file is a text file which specifies which image in SUB file should be showed at specific time. SubViewer became popular when support for it was included in the DivX media player. On August 28 2008, YouTube included support for SubViewer and SubRip, allowing existing videos to be retroactively subtitled.

To permanently add subtitles to avi files, you'd better to follow this guide: How to Add Subtitles to Video on Mac/Win?

Or try HandBrake:

Just google to find and download movie subtitles from the web. Please note that subtitle files can be easily found on the internet but there is no 100% guarantee for the existence.
Generally, the subtitle files are saved and.sub. But Handbrake only accepts SRT as the subtitle input. For an effective subtitle file searching, you can put "movie title" + "your preferred language" + "subtitle" as the search strings and select the subtitle file saved in .srt.
Step 2: Load Source Video
Just open Handbrake DVD Ripper open source and Choose the source video or movie as you like.
Step 3: Insert Subtitles into Movie Using Handbrake
Hit the "Subtitle" tab on the main interface of Handbrake. Then press "Import SRT" button to embed .srt subtitle to the movie file.
