heres a quick step by step to convert softsubs to hard subs


1. install / extract VirtualDub (search it at google, you'll have no problem finding it.)

2.Once VirtualDub is installed, install VobSub.

3.When installing VobSub, make sure that you includ the "VobSub for Virtual Dub" plugin and the "TextSub for Virtual Dub" plugin.

4. when done installing, load a video file into VirtualDub, by clicking File > Open Video File

5.Next, click Video > Filters from the drop down menu. Click the "Add" button and a new dialog box will appear with a list of filters. If TextSub is not available in the list, click the Load button and find the *.vdf file in the VobSub program files directory (Gabest).

6.Double click text subs

7.Click the "Open" button to load the subtitles appropriate to the movie, then click "OK" and "OK" again to get back to the main VirtualDub screen.

8.Click Video > compression... when a dialog box appears, Select Divx 5.11 codec ( or whichever Divx codec you have in the dialog box) then click OK.

9. Then click File> save as... to save your AVI movie

10. The process of encoding the subtitles to the movie will begin.. wait for a while.

AAAnd then atlast, enjoy the movie!

hey, does virtual dub have extra codecs in it?
i believe last time i installed it, all my codecs went wrong (i use CCCP). it may have been caused by something else, im just checking.

I've been translating the English subtitles of Yasha into German for some friends of mine.
However when I try to convert the softsubs into hardsubs (for one episode) it takes 30GB space O_o;

Anyone has a suggestion what went wrong? :7
(I was also considering to make the German subs available here but I'm not sure how to upload them here ._.)

^you are forgetting to select compression codec, so it is encoding as raw avi.


this is posted in the help on fansubbing thread as well with screenshots, that's where I learned how to do it! cheers

i tend to find this stuff difficult, so an easier way to do it is to use a freeware program called, AVI Recomp. you just choose the avi file and the soft sub then after u convert it, the file should be one.

Dealing with font colors, some reason, using Subtitle Workshop feature settings does not work for me either, therefore I use DivXLand Media Subtitler . Contact me through PM if you need more asstance.

I converted one rmbv file to avi then tried to hard-sub it with this AVI Recomp freeware. Something went terribly wrong; my MPC would not play subs any more! I had to delete and upload every thing again. What went wrong?

I'm using Ultra RM Converter now and so far only can produce RAW AVI file (which consumes quite enomous file space Sad ) However I can burn it into CD with NERO. The sad part is that after NERO my file changed into MPEG instead (playable in many players) and cannot use AVI Recomp since this software only usable for AVI file I think Roll Eyes

my friend recommended me to use virtualdub instead. it should be OK to convert RMVB to AVI and add the subs as well Wub However I haven't found time to try it yet Mr. Green

I use this freeware called MediaCoder. Easy to use. So far, only done conversion from rmbv to avi. No loss of quality, I see.

I wanted to convert soft subs into hard subs and I installed Avi ReComp .
the installation worked fine, but now i can't play soft subtitles when i'm playing a video into windows media player or media player classic. Sad
By installing, Avi Recomp, i installed these components: AviSynth, Xvid and VIrtualDubMob. AviRecomp also requires Vobsub to work fine, but I already have it .
I didn't change anything to my configuration but now it seems that vobsub won't recognize the subtitle file when I play a video, though they have the same name ...
And I uninstalled all Avi ReComp components ( except VobSub) but it still doesn't work....I uninstalled and reinstalled vobsub but it still doesn't work .... scratch
please , please, please, Can somebody help me ??????????

and i'm sorry for my bad english... Unsure

Met the same problem as you did. I deleted Avi Recomp software, uninstalled MPC and the attendant software K-Lite Codec, downloaded a fresh MPC and K-Lite Codec and installed them, and reinstalled Real Alternative (to play rm and rmvb files). Problem solved.

you can use virtualdubmod to convert .rmvb....i do it all the time. you just need to use avisynth as well. there's a good tutorial over at videohelp.com for this method.

It'd help a lot if you posted error message here, and also mentioned what version you have as a RAW. Also, what program are you using? VirtualDubMod?

And remember you cannot re-distribute the hardsub unless you subbed it yourself Smile

depending on your computer processing speed and the codec and settings you use to encode it and the size of the file, a 48 minute episode of a show can take anywhere from 2 hours to 9 hours...sometimes longer, but that has rarely happened for me. if you are running any other programs, it slows down the encoding a bit. generally its best to set something to encode right before you go to sleep so you aren't running as many extra programs

Yes, I use VirtualDubMod to join the soft sub with the video?

RAW video: Iljimae.E16.080710.HDTV.XviD-Ental

Soft Sub: Iljimae.e16.kor.080710.hdtv.xviD-ental.kst.cichlid

I have a problem converting files. I was trying to convert the following file:

You're Beautiful.E02.091008.HDTV.X264.450p-HAN
then a error occur saying:

Couldn't locate decompressor for format 'H264'
VirtualDub requires aq Video for Windows (VFW) compatible codec to decompress video. DirectShow codecs, such as those used by Windows Media Player, are not suitable.

How do you solve this?

Open ffdshow VFW configuration and make sure you don't have "disabled" for H.264/AVC. In other words: change it to libavcodec.

I suggest downloading the XviD Ental rips, since VirtualDub can't (explicitly) handle the h.264 HAN files Smile

I have a question.

I can load the .ssa subtitles onto the video, but when I tried converting the video with the subs, the subs with 2 lines dont show, in other words, when a person is talking, and there are 2 lines, one on top and one on bottom, the bottom line gets cut off. I tried resizing teh video, but that didnt work either.

so, does that mean that I have to go through all the subs and fix the subs into 1 long line? cos that will be a hassle for all 16 episodes!!

BTW, I am using Subtitle workshop to convert .srt to .ssa and Virtual Dub.
I dont know if I am missing any codecs or anything.

so, please, HELP!!!!!!!!!!!

I tried with the .srt file. but the subs are not showing up.
and if i convert the .srt to .ssa, the second line subs are getting cut off.
are there any other subbing programs besides VirtualDub that can put in hardsubs without the second line getting cut off?

I've installed everything correctly and even tried one video to see it works but It degraded the video a little. Does anybody know a trick so it could keep its clearity? My MAJOR problem right now is that I have an video that gives me a VirtualDub Warning. it says that my AVI: stream 1(audio) has a non-zero start position of 534 samples (+33 ms). Virtual Dub does not currently suppost a non-zero start time and the stream will be interpreted as starting from zero.

umm...what does that mean? scratch

It's just a warning... I think you can ignore it unless you see a audio/video sync problem.

I've seen the message in the past and have always ignored it. Smile

To maintain video quality, you need to change the encoding settings for the encoder you're using... In my case, I typically choose anywhere from 1-4 in XviD with single-pass encoding.

THanks so much for the explanation, I didn't know how to compress it, so my files always got REALLY BIG!!
But I was wondering one thing.. I have an .avi file I want to sub, but it sais it's not supported.. But it works with my other .avi files.. Is there anything I have to do??

And, I was wondering, what software do I use to convert .mkv files??

I'm sorry if it's been asked before.. Hehe..

Yeah, if you don't encode it using DivX or XviD the file is really huge. sweating

What program are you using?

What file is it?

The easiest program to use would be avidemux: http://www.videohelp.com/tools/AviDemux

Good luck. thumright

could someone please convert these three srt subs for me into ssa?

I googled how to myself and learned how and succeeded a couple of times. But these files get an error and won't convert fully to ssa and another program works but it shows the subs on to up side of the screen.

^ Why do you need to convert them to .ssa?

You should be able to use the .srt files without any problems...
