I'm working on backing up Star Wars Episode 1. Now my problem is chapters and subtitles.

I have encoded the video, and I am going to use the AC3 Audio. However I would like the original chapter locations, and the subtitles for the parts when I don't understand alien.

Is there any way to just copy the subtitles and chapters from the IFO file?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

I don't know what authoring app you're using, but you can extract the chapters from the original IFO file with chapterXtractor, and 'copy' them in your authoring app.

About the forced subtitles (those who appears when nobody can understand), you can either mux them with the audio, or encode them directly.

Alright, Chapter Xtractor works great, but how do I extract the forced subtitles?

If you mean "permanent" subtitles, those that have been encoded as part of the MPEG movie, you can't
They are part of the video. Not a separate stream.

... and if you mean those subtitles that appear when Chewaca (misspelled? ) or aliens 'talk', you have at least two ways, when using subrip:
1. They can be in their own stream, you need to check it. You'll see several streams of your language, and one of them, not usually the first, will be forced subtitle.
2. If there's just one stream of subtitle with your language, in SubRip global settings, you have to check 'Forced Subtitles Only'.

Try and tell us how it was

No, not the ones that are part of the video stream, they are in their own subtitle catagory. I'll check out Subrip later tonight.

SubRip makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

What I think I am going to have to do, is just encode the subtitles into the video. Which is acceptable for me.

Anyone know a good way to do this with VobSub and AviSynth? I've been looking for proper syntax to do this, but can't find anything about it.
