With a recent version of ffmpeg (requires the subtitles to be in a separate file, due to current libavfilter limitations): ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -filter:v subtitles=subtitle.srt -c:a copy -c:v libx264 -crf 22 -preset veryfast output.mp4 If your SRT subtitles are muxed into an MKV container, you can extract them like this: ffmpeg -i input.mkv -map 0:s:0 ...

Here are three ways to burn subtitles onto video: http://blogs.princeton.edu/hrc/2011/01/three_ways_to_burn_subtitles_into_a_video_avi_file.html You must use or convert to an AVI file The subtitle file (.srt) must be named the same exact name as the video file (AVI) The video file and the subtitle (.srt) file should reside in the same folder. ...

Subtitling is a horrible horrible thing, and there are loads of regulations and standards and other bull which can be found here. As for the font, it really depends on your opinion - if I'm not mistaken Trebuchet Sans and Deja Vu Sans are as close as you can get to the standard DVD fonts. But all I just said depend on your artistic point of view - if the ...

If you work on a regular basis with the "owner" of the voice I can recommend Nuance's Dragon it offers very accurate speech to text with very few errors but it needs some "calibration" to a specific voice. So if you can get your actor/narrator to read the calibration text you will have an easy time making transcripts and subtitles (though subs will require ...

There are lots of tricks to proper subtitling, but none of them involve delaying them. The reason you see large lags is because of "live" captioning -- they're appearing as fast as some trained operator can hear and enter them, which for the very best of them is still a few seconds. For post-event titling, you want the text to appear at or slightly before ...

I've just discovered Subler, which makes it super easy to add subtitles to an existing m4v file, and then burn that.

Freemake would be my best choice. It gives you great flexibility and also enables you to add subtitles to your video also. There is a variety of codecs and formats available for your testing. Just give a try , after all its free na ? Here is the Link. `.freemake: Free Video Converter with Subtitles Support Convert DVD, MKV, MOV with embedded ...

I have use Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate to render hardcoded subs in a video file. The name from the video and the subs must be the same. Import the video file: The subs are coming automatic with the import file. Under Subs you have the options to edit the high and so on from the subs. I render to DIVX but otherwise is possible.

Sorry this is a bit late but I just found your question while doing research on this topic. If you have access to After Effects, I've developed a script that can import .srt subtitle files (I think you can export .srt from Aegisub). You can download a trial at http://aescripts.com/pt_importsubtitles/ It preserves the timings but not the font or position, ...

If you select your clip and go to the Clip menu, then choose Analyse Content, Premiere will attempt to identify speakers and even attempt to dictate what is being said. You can assist this analysis by providing a script file to it by adding either an Adobe Story Script file or a TXT file to the Reference Script option. I don't have any experience with how ...

This can also be accomplished if you have VirtualDubMod and a TextSub provider installed such as VobSub or VSFilter. To use VobSub, during installation you must select the Plugins -> TextSub for VirtualDub and Avisynth option. To use VSFilter, you must locate the VSFilter.dll file in the installation directory and copy it to the plugins folder with the ...

We use a service called 3playmedia to do our subtitling. It's not free, but it's pretty cheap, considering the amount of work it saves - it's certainly cheaper than paying post production staff to do it. I'm not affiliated with them, just a happy customer.

YouTube has several captioning options. At one time they had free computer generated captions which you could then download the results in a text file. YouTube currently provides this list of caption software and services.

You should be able to define you own 3 character long language code for imported media using the option :lang=LAN when specifying your media file for import. LAN being your own language code. So you could use something like SCN and TCN.

In that case Adobe After Effects can do this easily, which probably also produced the effect in the video. It's actually the only software where I know you can do this without too much manual labor. Other products usually only offer a timer effect which would be tedious to use for these kind of things. Though if you want to do this based on just a single ...

Check out Derivative's TouchDesigner. Its a real-time compositing and rendering software that we use in our studios. It's used worldwide for really complex projects, so you could easily make a little patch in that where you could make 2 UI buttons and link those to some incrementing numbers, then composite the numbers onto the video and record it. Then you ...

Have you ever heard the expression: 'Good, fast and cheap. Pick any two.'? A good and fast way would be to hire a professional post-production studio capable of layering over the video a scorebdoard graphic, and layering over the graphic a character-generator input. You sit in the chair behind the editor and tell him what scores to input and when. The new ...

Have you tried WebVTT for marking up the subtitles? http://www.w3.org/community/texttracks/2012/08/23/webvtt-support-in-browsers/ http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/Graphics/CaptionMaker/ is a surprisingly good tool for making captions. You could also cheat a bit and use Youtube's pretty good voice recognition to perhaps save time transcribing.

Ordinarily, I'd create an Adobe AIR or AIR-for-iOS app to solve this problem. You'd just sychronize your captions to cue points in the video and make 'em visible or invisible with a programmed-in button. You could easily have multiple languages in this way. Are iTunes podcasts just flat-out mp4 movies?

In Vegas you can make a default text or preset by using the save preset feature. For instance you may add a text at the end of all your movies that looks like this: Joe Blow Productions Copyright Joe Blow 2014 After you make this text, give the text title a unique name "Joe Blow", then click the save preset button just to the right of the title ...

Vegas' text capabilities are rather limited. It allows you to insert captions only one by one. There is an extension for Vegas Pro, which is called Vegasaur. It contains Text Generation Wizard that can import text from subtitle files (srt, sub etc.) or just from the Clipboard http://vegasaur.com/Vegasaur

A player doesn't have to acknowledge the position of subtitles. So a user could re-position them if he wanted to. Thats actually the standard way of doing it. What you have there is a custom tag. The .srt format doesn't include any position data for the subtitles. Some players can recognize this sort of custom data and use it but you can't expect that a ...

m3u playlists only contains links to the media itself that you're playing. It doesn't actually consider the srt file at all. If the software used to play back the m3u file support srt files it will look in the same folder for the same file as the video only with the extension switched to srt. You will therefor always need to store the srt together with the ...

Try to publish your video on youtube and add 'Titles' as plain text file. It will be synced automatically if language is supported by Google voice input.

This is not possible with Premiere without plugins and I don't know of any that would do this. I recommend doing this outside of premiere like explained in this question: Render srt subtitles to video?

What do you mean by burned in? Do you mean you wish to actually render the text on to the video or that you wish to encode it in a format that supports inclusion of a subtitle channel? For actually making them a permanent part of the video, I've always done it through titles rather than an srt. I unfortunately don't have any experience with the latter ...

Will refer to Premiere Pro as PP and After Effects as AE from here on: Here is a solution which requires AE that I think works but can't test it because my demo of PP and AE has finished. Luckily for you, they have trials for many products including AE which you can download from their site. I contacted a friend of mine who works as a video editor about ...

Tips on subtitles. 1) make it clear, be sure the font color is not washed out by the background for instance don't put light lettering on a light background. In a word "contrast". Some title programs will have a shadow or outline to assist when the title is over a mixed light and dark area. Choose an easily readable font. Consider why highway signs have ...
