Adding subs to video.


Not sure if this fits on this thread but taking a chance. I was always able to make a new folder for the video and then the subs file. Have not done it for about two years. I think too much chemo has frazzled my memory section because I cannot do this formerly simple task.
I have video file and sub srt file next to it. If I make a new folder it appears at the end of the list in my Docs. There is no way that I can click and drag either video or srt file to move them into the new folder. My docs listing stays put. I don't know why this happens and wonder if it has anything to do with having a new computer buiult last year with added Media center etc. I make the titles the same but as soon as I click the file the listing stops dead and I cannot get into the empty folder.

If anyone has any thoughts I would be grateful. Either it is my lacking in thinking or there is a technical reason that is stopping the progress.

Re: Adding subs to video.


Peg, that happens to me too sometimes! When I first got my laptop, I had a hard time getting used to the touchpad feature rather than using a mouse, so this is what I did until I got used to it.

I often made the folder on my desktop. That way, when you drag the video and subs files, instead of dragging them to My Documents and having to go through all those other files till you reach the bottom, you can just drag them into the folder that is on your desktop rather than having to drag AND scroll.

If that doesn't work, I would just copy the file, click on your folder that you're going to put them in, and then paste it manually inside the folder. Then, once the video file is pasted inside, you can just paste the subs file there the same way.

Let me know how it goes! emoticon

Most treasured Hiroshi......

You have neatly solved this problem for me!!!!! I cannot thank you enough and I really feel elated that I could follow your instructions regarding putting folder on the desktop and moving the files that way. Never knew that could be done. You are brilliant and so helpful

Arigatou....

Now to carry on with the rest of 'Saranghae'.

Peg..:-)

Re: Adding subs to video.


Hi Greg,

After a year I wanted to put the English subs on the japanese drama 'MR.BRAIN'
I had forgotten how to do this and I looked it up here and refreshed my memory. I was successful with episode 1. Now I have Audio and Video of Episode 2. there is no way I can get this to work for some reason. I am following the same way by putting files on desktop and then dragging to into the new folder. It just plays without the subs.,
It is a real puzzle and I wonder if you have any comments.

hehe, I knew you'd be watching Mr. Brain. btw, are you watching Shiroi Harou as well?

just forget that method of embedding sub to a video file, it's just too much work and too time consuming. instead, just get one of these.

since you are already stored the require files on the hard drive. get yourself an portable hd and xfer what you wanna watch over to the portable hd, it's relatively cheap nowadays. now, instead watching it on your tiny small computer monitor, you could be watching it on your HDTV, it's the way that it is intended. and you should be d/ling the HQ (720p) version of the video file. you'd suprised how sharp and clearity is on your HDTV. once you've watched HQ or HD version, you wouldn't wanna go back to watch anything on Youtube, MySoju. the video quality on there are so bad!!!

Hi Ex.N,

Yes I am watching and enjoying Mr. Brain.:-)

Actually I do not d/l from Youtube as I don't know how. However the d/l from d-addicts is easy for me and usually quick. My monitor is a large one so don't lose much viewing.

It is usually easy for me to put subs on video and I like to do it to keep my brain cells busy. However I think I could transfer the picture from my PC to my TV if I just take the time to read about it. I had this set -up built to my own specs by a good technician so there is stuff on here that I haven't investigated yet.

I don't have a clue what that photo is by the way. I already have external HD and have plenty of space on internal as well. What is the brand of that external HD and where could I get it here in California please ??

thanks for post.

Peg

the thing in the picture is call media player made by Western Digital. it's available at Bestbuy, Frys. it's function is similar to mediacenter software on your PC. but this thing is stand alone.

what it is, you hook this little media player to your HDTV via HDMI cable or regular RCA cable, it has 2 USB ports for your external Hard Drive. since you know external HD can be move around. so, once you have finish d/l episodes off internet, unhook it from your PC, and then hook it up to this near your HDTV, you'll be set to watch the dramas on the HDTV from your couch.

on the harddrive, I would suggest get an external portable hd, the ones with 2.5" specs. I would recommend you get one. it's not only easier move around without all that power cable and the plug (to weight you down and don't need the hassle to find the available plug for powering up the Hard Drive). the only thing you'd need to move each time is the hd and the usb cable, between your pc and this media player.

Re: Adding subs to video.


Thanks for the info. It looks very interesting. I will save the address and check it out soon.

I still hope to solve my problem with the English subs. I know it should work and it bugs me when I can't remember how I did it before.
It's this old brain. I should ask MR.BRAIN...!!! But don't want a wall to fall on me. :-)

LOL!! emoticon

Peg-san, does the subtitle file in the folder end with a ".srt" extension? If so, maybe it might work if you go back to D-Addicts and try downloading Episode 2 again. Try making the New Folder on your Desktop first, and then putting the video file and the subtitles in one at a time. I'm not sure if that will help, but its worth a try.
