I’m having a problem getting subtitles to show up when I convert movie files to DVD format. I thought I had it all figured out, but apparently not.
My understanding was that if you have an .srt subtitle file located in the same folder as the movie file, and the subtitle file has the exact same name as the movie file, then ConvertXtoDVD will automatically pick them up and put them on the converted DVD file. This has worked fine for me in the past. However, recently I got a movie from Egypt, and even though ConvertXtoDVD acknowledges that the subtitle stream is there, the subtitles don’t appear on the converted movie. When I watch the original, unconverted file on Windows Media Player, the subs appear, but I don’t like to watch movies on my computer, I like to burn them to DVD and watch them on my TV! Anyway, I thought maybe it was just a glitch with that particular movie, but it’s happened again with a German movie I just got.
So my question is…am I forgetting something? I swear this used to work fine, now it doesn’t. Any ideas as to what gives?
The version of ConvertXtoDVD I’m running is 18.104.22.168, if that matters.
