Hey there... I'm searching for a way to embed some srt subtitles to their corresponding files. Actually it is the best way to watch movies with greek subtitles right now.

I've tried to search google, but i didn't find something i could rely on.. So i though better ask in here!

I am not sure if AVI very old format support embedded subtitles

but you can use MP4 or MKV


you can very easy convert your AVI to much more effecient formant .mp4 (MP4-ISO container)
and you will save few megabytes space on your usb_media AVI indexes are fat mp4 are ussually 1-5mb less

use this for looseless convertion if you are using XVID/DIVX/H264 or else except WMV3

mencoder <inputfile> -ovc copy -oac copy -idx -of lavf -o myconverter.mp4
if you want have matroska .mkv only change .mp4 to .mkv

then you can use other tools to embed subtitles and add embeded artwork with VideoTag or MetaX appl

more information is here

hey thanx for the reply... actually what i want is embedding the subtitles as part of the video image. Not as part of the container or something like that.

As i explained on the first post, the WDTV has some issues regarding the correct parse time of the greek subtitles and also the font used is difficult to read.
So all i want is to embed the SRTs as part of the video. :)
