    How to Hardcode Subtitles to video file using Mac OS X

    Does anyone know how to hardcode subtitles from SRT file to one video file. I have found this feature in handbrake and vlan but will not able to find the same functionality in toast or final cut. This is due to the limitations of external player and it need to be hardcoded. Is there any way around solution?

    I heard that FFmpeg was able do the same. So I think that now the iFFmpeg can also do the same. But before that, you should keep in one thing. You must create AVI file or convert any movie or video file to AVI format in order to make the hardcoded subtitles. After that you can again convert to DVD format. During the conversion, you may notice slight loss in quality but it won’t affect much.

    I have got one free toll and that is XviD4PSP. This tool is capable to hardcode subtitles in any video. Moreover it can also convert any video file to iPhone, iPod, PSP, and other device format. You can simply hardcode the subtitle even if you don’t want to convert the video to another format. The Encode button will do the rest of the task for you. Make sure to set proper formats, encoding options and additional settings before clicking the “Encode” button.

    I have got one Japanese version DivX AVI file along with the SRT file for the subtitles. You can view the video with subtitles in QuickTime (but with Perian add-on). But one thing you have to make sure that both AVI and SRT file should have the same name and should reside the in the same folder. At that time only, you can view the subtitles. In order to make it as a self-contained movie, you have to hardcode subtitles or AVI file should be hardcoded.

    While burning AVI movie to DVD, you might have noticed that the software always burns the AVI and subtitle file separately. But before the burn process, you are forced to encode AVI movie after that mix up with the subtitles over it.

    This takes plenty of time in order burn a single DVD with subtitles. To save your time, it is always better to go with Perian plug-in for QuickTime. Since you are using the Mac, the QuickTime is readily available there. You just have to install Perian plug-in. While playing any .avi file, make sure to put the subtitle file with same in same folder. That it.

    For all of your issue, there is a professional software called TEncoder which you can try for routine video encoding needs.

    This is an open source video encoder with the support of multi-thread technology helps you to convert multiple videos fast and seamlessly. It supports video conversion between 9 different formats, including, Xvid, FLV, H264, WMV, MP4, MPEG 2, etc.

    By the help of FFMpeg and Mencoder codecs, it will convert videos by abandoning major confliction between the video formats. Using this software you can pack subtitles into single video file.
