    I'm trying to convert an avi divx files to SVCD compliant mpeg2 with Xmedia Recode to author with VCDEasy. I also have a srt subtitle file that I want to hardcode into the file (not switchable). In the change log for Xmedia Recode it says that starting with version 2.1.2.5 you can do hard coded subs (I have 2148). I don't see anywhere in the app to select a subtitle file and it does not automatically use the sub if it is the same name as the avi. Can someone tell me how to get the subs in there? Thanks.

    here is the changelog

    Have a DVD ripped to hd, hit the DVD button > choose second option, locate ifo now on hd and wait ... now there's the subtitle option and now you can encode to what you need.

    In order to load any other file for hard subbing Id suggest a small script of avisynth ... might even be possible to use vdubs frame server ... something to try tomorrow

    My source is not a DVD, it is a divx encoded avi file with separate .srt file for the subs...... Which of the free mpeg encoders will work with virtualdub frameserver for encoding to SVCD?

    Have you tried The FilmMachine or avi2dvd or the old dvd2svcd. They can convert to svcd with burned in subs.


    Or else it will work to frameseve from virtualdub to tmpgenc...but it's not a free mpeg2 svcd encoder though.

    I ended up using AVS Video Converter. Output was surprisingly fast, VCDEasy sees the file as compliant, the output looks great and the hard subs look very good. I'm surprised that AVS Video Converter is not listed in the "tools" section of this site, especially since adverts are plastered all over this site for it??

    I thought I added it a couple of years ago but apperently not.

    AVS Video Converter, and yep it's a very easy all-in-one converter.
