    Default Visual Hub + dvd with subtitles

    Hi there,

    i'm wanting to convert my fearless Audio_TS and Video_TS files to an ipod touch format. This works fine for getting the picture over and in Chinese language as it is meant to be, however i cant work out how to get the subtitles to come along too. Anyone know?

    Also, i have the godfather in the same format. Basically what i want is the english audio track with the subtitles only when they start speaking in italian. Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    I'm hitting the same wall. The only way i can find to do it (so far) is to rip the movie to a mov, quickly run thru the movie to find other language bits, edit the srt to include only the other language dialog, then using the perian codec pack to jam it into the mov and export out to mp4.

    There has to be a better way.

    Yep. Most certainly does. Bottom selection under Audio & Subtitles

    Handbrake will do it, but can you get it to display subs when there is another language spoken in the movie?

    Yep, if the DVD has a subtitle track that type. Select "Forced Subs Only".

    What about using ffmpegx and "burning" the subtitle into the movie rather than including the .srt file with the movie file? I've done it many times and it works well.
