I have a similar but opposite question. Someone gave me an English .srt subtitle file for a film that's only out in German. I ordered the dvd. I want to rip the movie, add the .srt & reauthor a dvd (menu is not absolutely necessary.)
My question is: The software I currently own would require me to rip to avi, add the srt file & convert back to dvd. I would prefer to avoid the avi step for quality.
Software I currently own relating to this is Nero 6 (Recode & Nerovision), which afaik won't allow me to add subs; + Winaviconvertor 8.0 & an older version of Convert X to DVD, which I believe both require an avi to add subs.
Any suggestions? I'm looking for cheap (hopefully no more then $30 USD) & simple (I don't have time to learn a complicated program).
There also may or may not be a timing issue with the subs, the dvd I purchased (I don't have it yet, it's coming from Germany) is a new restored remaster & I believe the srt file is a bit older.
