View Full Version : [ubuntu] Seperate subtitles?

October 8th, 2009, 03:07 PM
My dvd player can only read Dolby Digital,dts, mpeg-1 or 2,LPCM. I have to therefore convert an AVI file to a format it likes. I would like to play Crouching tiger, hidden dragon in Manderin with English subtitles. If I find a separate English subtitle file can I just add it to the DVD or do I have to do some form of conversion before it will be recognised?

My dvd player says:

You can select the default subtitle language if supported by that DVD disc.

How do I set up subtitles on the DVD player as above?

Since your DVD player doesn't support xvid/divx video files with external subtitles you must convert your video to DVD format.

There are a few good programs for this job.
