I recently recorded a video to send to a friend (lollipoppet, who I believe STILL hasn't gotten her computer back yet) and I wanted to add subtitles.
I downloaded Gaupol Subtitle Editor and it works perfectly. I also downloaded VLC Media Player so I can add the subtitles and then send it to my friend.
I got the subtitles loaded onto the VLC, but when I tried saving it, the resulting save file wasn't playable at all and was "0 KB."

My question is that does anyone know any other free and safe application that loads Gaupol subtitles and is able to save the video AND the subtitles in a file that will play?
Thanks :thumbsup:

This new product Overstream was just announced last week. I saw it on TechCrunch.

Thanks for introducing me to it. I have bookmarked it. However, I was hoping for something that added subtitles to non-online videos. Any suggestions?
Thanks :thumbsup:

Found a solution =D I actually found the solution a few days ago, but I haven't posted until now.
I got VobSub and VirtualDub. If I just open the video and the subtitles, then save it as AVI, the AVI comes out perfectly. Only problem I find is that between the line changing there is a slight blur. I've sent the "experiment" to a few friends, but apparently the XvID <-- hope that's capitalized right codec is needed for the picture to show up.
In the process of finding something that'll save as Matroska format...
