I'm trying to make my softsubs into hardsubs, but when I try to open the video with VirtualDubMod (or any other version of VirtualDub), I get this message:

"Couldn't locate decompressor for format 'DX50' (unknown). VirtualDub requires a Video for Windows (VFW) compatible codec to decompress video. DirectShow codecs, such as those used by Windows Media Player, are not suitable. Only 'Direct stream copy' is available for this video."

I've tried two different tutorials and couldn't get past this step in either of them. These are .avi files I'm trying to open, by the way.

I've converted soft- to hardsubs using VobSub and VirtualDubMod before, but they were with different videos and on a different computer a couple years ago, so I'm not sure what's going wrong.

Thanks for any help.

basically you need the codec to decompress it. If you uninstall all your previous installed codec and install cccp, you should be able to load it in vdubmod without problems to encode it. cccp codec has compression and decompression codecs in its package; ffdshow (included in package) should be able to handle most of your codec needs, so good luck.

hi, for the past week i have tried many different ways to change subtitles from softsub to hardsub. but i failed. i read like almost all the links i could find on google and yahoo.
but still unable to work. i downloaded all Virtualdubmod, VobSub, Avisynth, Divx and almost everyother thing. But to no avail.
Ok, getting to the point, i tried to put subtitler.vdf into the my plugins file of the virtualdubmod file. but doesnt work when i press videos/filters/add, i couldnt find the word textsub, the only thing i could find is the subtitler by AveryLee and it kinda fails.

i just need to put convert sdf/sub file into the avi file.. but seemed impossible. i tried downloading even all the different codecs, or even uninstall then reinstalling but still cant work. can someone help me? i need to know of a way to put subtitles into the avi file as hardsub because i need to convert into my itouch the single file and its kinda important for me. i need it to spend my daily life><

someone please help me!! any kind souls ? PLEASEEE!

Code:
LoadPlugin("C:\_encode\TextSub\VSFilter.dll")

AviSource("Your_episode_in_avi_format.avi")

TextSub("your_sub_file.srt") # or .ass if you have that too


This doesn't work on IDX/SUB, because it's not a textfile, it's an "image". These are images subtitles. You need to convert that into srt or other.

I used the link above ( http://forum.koreandramas.net/topic_541.html ) to convert to hardsub. It worked well. But, I downloaded an avi file (716 mb), after I harsubbed it, became 494 mb (the quality is not good anymore). Is there anyway to keep the avi file to 716 mb?
Thank you!

In VDub, under file menu, select File Information... look at the Video Stream Data rate value (example 1800kbps). When you select and configure the video codec for full processing, use the same data rate. I assume the audio is set for "source audio", then by using the same video rate as already discussed, the total size and quality of the re-encoded avi (with subtitle) should be very close to the original avi.

You need to change the quality settings, if there are any available.

I typically use the xVid encoder in VirtualDub and set the quality to 1 (maximum), that's way there's little or no degradation in video quality. thumright

EDIT: At the maximum quality setting, the file size does get bigger... Usually double. sweating
