Hi guys. I know this isn’t a video encoding forum, but I’ve done lots of googling with very little results, so I thought I’d try my luck here.
Say for example that I rip Elephants Dream to my computer as a .VOB file, with a particular subtitle language. Is there any free/open source program that I can use to “burn” the subtitles into the video track of the .VOB file, and output the file as either a new .VOB file, or as an MPEG4? (If only MPEG4, the program would need to let me control the resolution, as well as bitrate, etc.)
My ultimate goal is to take a .VOB with subtitles, and apply the subtitles to the video, so I can output a subtitled video to my iPod, with as few encoding steps as possible, so that I don’t lose quality.
Right now I have a program to rip the .VOB, and a program that can output a .VOB as an MPEG4 (Videora iPod Converter), so the main thing that I need is a way to apply the subtitles.
Thanks in advance for any help that you guys can give.
edit I’m running Windows.
