Display Subtitles with a Movie
First things First
First of all we need to have a program wich we can play the subtitles with. For this I use VobSub. You can download VobSub here.
Now we have VobSub we can install it.
You can just click next and install VobSub.
NOTE: If you want to install the Virtualdub, AviUtil, Text for VirtulDub and AviSync plugins, you must choose Full Install.
Now you have installed VobSub.
Click on DirectVobSub Configure
Now you see a dialog with tabs:
First we go to the General tab
I will explain the needed settings, afterwhich you''ll see a picture to go with it.
The first thing you can change is how to extend them. This depends on the movie, but most movies have an aspect ratio of 16:9 (widescreen). Ofcourse it could be that you have a movie with an AR of 4:3 (fullscreen). Modify this setting depending on your need.
Enable MOD32fix. You won''t need it most of the time. But it doesn''t do any damage (as far as i know) so just put it on.
The third option must be set to: Double if smaller than The values on the right of it are the limits if smaller than double. You can play with these settings but for now they are just fine.
Now we''ve come to the final thing to change in this screen. Set it to Always load.'' This so DirectVobSub starts everytime you open a video file.
The Misc tab
Skip this one for now, nothing needs changing.
The Timing tab
Just keep everything like this (original settings if I''m not mistaken):
We''re not going to change anything here, because should a subtitle not be in sync with the movie, you can find a link to tutorial at the bottom of this article.
The Colors tab
Skip, keep original settings.
The Paths tab
Add directory where your subs are stored. A period "." is added by default, which means that it will automatically search for subtitles in the same directory as where your movie file is located. Make sure the video file and the subtitle file both have the same name, ie.: movie.avi and movie.srt
No we''re done configuring VobSub.
You only have to do this once.
Close the dialog by clicking OK.
Putting subtitles under the movie
When you start your player and load the movie. An icon will appaer in your taskbar:
Doubble Click on it.
You''ll see the DirectVobSub Configure screen popup.
Click on Open. Go to the place where the Subtitle files are stored (unrar if you download them in RAR format).
Check Override Placement.
H is to move it from left to right. 50 is the center and is good.
V is to movie it from the top to the bottom. i always have something like 90/100 but you can figure this out for yourself.
Now click on Adjust (down right on the screen)
and select the Language.
Click on OK.
The subs will automatically appear under the movie.
Congratulations you now have subtitles under your movie.
It could be that the subs are not 100% in sync. If that is the case read the Subtitle Workshop tutorial.
