How to use.sub and .idx files to make subtitles?
 
Hi... I'm trying to back up a dvd and I have subtitle files that are .sub and .idx. How do I include them in the script to make them show up when I play the kvcd?? Do I need to do a conversion to .srt?My subs are chinese characters and I want to keep them. The .idx and .sub show up when I play the file in wmp.

Hi,
As you may find in many guides here.
I assume that from the file extensions you're talking about *.idx/*.sub you used vobsub to extract the subs from your movie.
You need also VSFilter.dll in your Avisynth's plugins folder.
Besides that you'll need a line in your script like:
Code:

Vobsub("c:\path\subtitles.sub")
But if you're saying that playing the script through wmp you can already watch it with subs, it's because you've followed these steps and you'll be alright.
Cheers

what about the .idx? I find that if I don't include it in the same folder the subs won't show up

Hi Wowie,
You don't need to use the *.idx at all.
But, you have to keep it in the same directory where you have the *.sub file or else this won't work at all.
That's just it.

what is vobsub under? I tried to find it in my computer but I can't find it.

Hi,
How did you get that *.idx and *.sub files?
What tool did you use?
I assumed you used VobSub.
Seems I was wrong?
Cheers

I can also use something called Internet :-)

Note: in the script you can put either :
Vobsub("c:\path\subtitles.sub")
Vobsub("c:\path\subtitles.idx")
or
Vobsub("c:\path\subtitles") :!:
