    I have a music DVD and it has subtitle on each song, but I need to click and choose "subtitle" in order for it to display. Does anyone know how to convert each song into each vob file with subtitle included? So that when I click on that vob or avi, etc... it will display the subtitle as recorded with the video? Thank you!

    What are you playing it back on? Set top player or computer? With a computer, subs can usually be set to automatically display if you like, depending on your software player.

    If you want permanent burned in subs, then that's a bit more complicated.

    If you are using a set top player, which one? Some of them handle subs differently. You may be able to re-author the DVD and improve how the subs work with your player.

    We do have a subtitle forum where you may get better information. The 'Stickies' at the top of that forum have quite a bit of info on using subs. I can also move this thread there if you like.

    Thanks, I use WMP as default player, and it can allow me to display the sub automatically, but I just want it to be recorded to the video.

    I first want to play it on my computer, and could burn to DVD when I need to.

    I will have a walk on subtitle forum as you said, thanks!

    Convert your dvd to an iso file using dvddecrypter, then convert it into an avi file using fairusewizard, there is an option to include subtitles.

    Thank you very much. I tried and it's looks good!

    Do you know any similar DVD ripping soft like this?

    I saw my friend has some avi files (~700MB) which are ripped from the original movies (DVD5-9), but the quality looks very great! Is this the soft they used?

    You can also use handbrake and autogk and include burned in subs. You should get similar quality using them all.

    It's very possible that it is the same method and software they used. It has worked well for me.

    Thank you very much for all you suggestions, it really helped me out! Below is another question after I succesfully converted the DVD out with burned subtitles using FairUse.

    The DVD I was trying to convert is Camp Rock with 4:3 ratio (I think!), and when I try to convert it by using FairUse, I croped the video to 16:9 by pressing the 16:9 button. So my question is: is the final output file called a 16:9 ratio, because when I compare the screen with other 16:9 video, it's very different!

    For example, when I fullscreen play the output file, it full fill my laptop screen (14.1"). But with other videos, the width looks longer and there is black bars at the top and the bottom.

    My purpose is to crop it and burn it to a DVD with 16:9 ratio (by cropping out the top and the bottom), so how do I do that if I have TMPGEnc Authoring Works? Does FairUse have a option to convert the DVD to a DVD with another ratio? And the mkv option? Because I just saw the only options are avi, mp4, and something about iPhone.

    Why exactly do you wish to crop the video file? Being that it came from a 4:3 it has already been decimated "to fit your screen".

    The definitions " A 4:3 aspect ratio means the horizontal size is a third again wider than the vertical size. Standard television ratio is 4:3 (or 1.33:1). Widescreen DVD and HTDV aspect ratio is 16:9 (or 1.78:1)"

    I just want it to be widescreen, so that it can fit better on my cousin's TV screen... and I think widescreen is more and more popular, therefore I want to make one from fullscreen for my little cousin. First is just for fun, and then is learning new knowledge.

    If you think that's no need, that's ok! I just want to play around with these stuffs...

  13. Crop 60 rows of pixels from both the top and bottom, resize to 720x480, and encode as 16:9.

    The exact ways in which you do these things is dependent on the software you use. An AviSynth script frameserved to your MPEG-2 encoder is the best way. But since I don't use TMPGEnc, if there are ways to do it within the encoder someone else will have to explain.

    Dumb idea, though, to butcher at a perfectly good video like that.
