Ok guys, I know this is crazy but I would like to do this from scratch. I have the Laguna Beach Season 1 DVD but I was surprised that it has NO SUBTITLES on it! But I managed to google myself and found that there is actually a subtitle for it but is in .HTML!!! Please visit the following website to see the text:
and trust me, I searched google and yahoo for one whole day but I can't find anyone who actually did a premade subs in .sub or .srt for this TV Show. This is the only one I can find!
I have found the subtitle for it and now, I would like to synchronize the text with the DVD to make a .sub or .srt file for it. I understand that I may have to watch the whole DVD in order to create the subtitle files but I'm willing to do it for someone I love!
So right now, I just need to know the following:
1. Tools that I need
2. Kind of softwares to make it happen
3. a DETAILED STEP BY STEP guide on how to make my dream come true!
4. Everything or anything at all that would be able to help me create the subs
I hope you kind fellows out there would be able to guide me through this pain process. I really hope to make it happen. I owe you guys one! Below is what I have cut and paste from the website above mentioned.

Subtitle Workshop is a great tool but there are better options to create subs from scratch. I would use VisualSubSync. You can find a tutorial here: http://christophe.paris.free.fr/VisualSubSync/tutorial.html
I don't know if VisualSubSync will accept DVD files or not. If it doesn't, convert it to DivX or similar using for instance AutoGK.
Follow the tutorial but do some cut-and-paste work instead of typing it all in. You will need to edit a bit since what you have is a transcript, not subtitles. Try to keep the subs short, not much more than 40 letters per line or the final result will look strange. Be careful about how long they are shown: a sub of one line should be shown 2 - 4 seconds, one of two lines at least 4 seconds, 6 is better. This is of course not a law but it is a handy rule.
Once your text subs (*.srt) are done you can follow this excellent guide https://forum.videohelp.com/topic338721.html to add them to your DVD.
Good luck!In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.
