Hi All,

I can't do it? it's weird...

a snippet of the movie.srt file:

00:01:09,320 --> 00:01:11,379
Pay attention!

00:01:11,522 --> 00:01:14,286
Ah, yes sir.

00:01:14,425 --> 00:01:20,295
Take this map to Kanemaru now

the file is movie.mpg

the subtitle.xml is:

<subpictures> <stream> <textsub filename="dvd.srt" characterset="ISO8859-1" fontsize="18.0" font="devedesans.ttf" horizontal-alignment="center" vertical-alignment="bottom" left-margin="60" right-margin="60" top-margin="20" bottom-margin="30" subtitle-fps="29.97" movie-fps="29.97" movie-width="720" movie-height="478"/> </stream> </subpictures>

the command:

spumux -s0 /home/some/DVD/subtitle.xml < /home/some/DVD/dvd.mpg > /home/some/DVD/dvd.mpg.temp

driving me nuts...

Command line output:

some@some-one:~/DVD$ spumux -s0 /home/some/DVD/subtitle.xml < /home/some/DVD/dvd.mpg > /home/some/DVD/dvd.mpg.temp
