What is AVIAddXSubs software from DHMK, what is it used for and how to use it?
Create, modify or manage your subtitles
AVIAddXSubs is a simple program to incorporate subtitles (XSUB) from .srt (ANSI text, up to 8 srt) or idx/sub (containing up to 8 subtitles) quickly and easily to your avi files containing DivX/XVid video streams.
Just place the avi and its associated (same name) srt in the same directory and Drag&Drop the avi on AVIAddXSubs icon or shortcut in your desktop.
In 2-3 minutes a new file with divx extension will be created and be ready to play in your hardware DivX player.
To see the subtitles you have to activate them through your remote control much like you do with normal DVD. Check the configuration page of the program for the offered options. Maybe you have to put a smaller number at "Vertical Position" field if subtitles are selectable, are selected, but do not appear. The generated file is a regular avi and you can rename it if this helps the player.
Additionally to incorporate XSUB subtitles in avi files there is another alternative solution for video subtitling that AVIAddXSubs supports: To generate idx/sub subtitles from srt. The subtitles in idx/sub are too in bitmap format and have the same benefits with XSUB, mainly that can support any language that your PC supports and also any configuration in font, font size, outline and colors. Many players support this kind of subtitles directly and some users may prefer them instead of incorporating XSUB. So AVIAddxSubs can handle idx/sub subtitles in two ways: One to generate them from srt and two, to read and convert in XSUB. More specifically the user has the following alternatives:
Incorporate XSUB subtitles in the avi from srt files.
Incorporate XSUB subtitles in the avi converting idx/sub files.
Incorporate XSUB subtitles coming from a combination of srt and idx/sub files.
Generate idx/sub files from srt and use them as external subtitle files in supporting players
