AVIAddXSubs is a simple to use, free program to subtitle videos converting the original srt files you may have. Its services are useful in cases your hardware player is not able to show the subtitles directly from srt or even if it does the result is not satisfactory. Using AVIAddXSubs and converting the srt you have a variety of options to configure the subtitles as regards font, font size, color, outline, position, etc. This effect is achieved through a srt conversion to another format where the subtitles are stored as bitmaps (that is, images) already prepared in your PC.
This conversion process, takes a few minutes (or a few seconds in many cases) and it doesn't re-encode the video so its quality remains exactly the same. The generated subtitles are "soft", not burned in the picture, so the user is able to activate/deactivate through his/her player's remote control the same way it does at normal DVD playback.
What's new in this version:
- Added ability for automatic conversion of mp4/mkv files to their avi equivalent so users can incorporate XSUB subtitles. Please note that this conversion is accomplished through ffmpeg command line executable that has to be downloaded separately. For more information on how to enable this feature read "Converting mp4/mkv to avi for XSUB subtitle incorporation" in the manual.
- IdxSub2Srt removed from zip as obsolete.
