Default Support for SVCD with selectable Subtitles ?


I was looking for a software player to test my multiplexed SVCD's with subtitles to see if they worked, but unfortunatly i have not found any player yet to support the Subtitle functions in the standard SVCD format by Philips.

Is there any other player out there for windows which is capable of showing the subpicture streams in SVCD or is there any change of seeing this in a future update of BSplayer ???



P.s. The Standard SVCD format allows up to 4 subpicture streams in SVCD format.

will send you today or tomorrow. Those subtitles are overlay graphic (OGT) and exist as svcd-style and cvd-style (read below). The sample will be with CVD.
Here some tech info I found about it, maybe it helps:
"the following info. maybe useful to the
developers. It is copied from VCDImager manual. SVCD Subtitles

There exist two major subtitle formats for SVCD's, of which only one
is officially supported. The non-compliant one has it's origin in the
so-called CVD format, a competitor for the Video CD 2.0 successor. The
real SVCD subtitle format is part of the Super Video Specification,
wheras the CVD-style subtitle format is not. Alas the latter one is
more widely used, due to older pre-SVCD aged software only supporting
the non-compliant CVD subtitle format.

Compliant SVCD subtitles are transported in a private_stream_1 stream
with only the private_data_id 0x70(19). The sub_stream_id is used to
distinguish between the 4 available subtitle channels.

As of the time of writing, there is only a proof of concept
implementation (read hack) for creating proper SVCD subtitles. The
source code is available from the contribs download directory, but its
use is not recommended for production use. If you are searching for a
new free software project, you could take this as an idea...


While AC3 tracks use the private_data_id 0x80+, DVD subtitles 0x20
onwards and CVD subtitles 0x00 and up."
