Wink Remove Subtitles from an *.avi video

Hi guys ; need some help....

I have a video file (actually atleast 5-6 avi files from a total of 22 episodes of 2nd season of Prison Break) which has French subtitles (the moron downloaded almost 3/4th of them without subs and only some wid subs !!).... It's annoying to read those subs because they're like 10 km long and 100 kms in width....

I need help from any1 who knows more than a thing or two abt this stuff (video processing and editing).... Yes, as u can see from the tags I had my go at it.... I downloaded Virtualdub, then the Virtualdub MSU Subtitle Remover 2.0b (*.vdf) file.... I did exactly as it was required ; yet somehow sometimes the software crashed or sometimes if it didn't crash it just didn't make any changes at all....

What am I doing wrong ??? I have done my bit search and turns out the software isn't as easy as it's made out to be.... You just don't turn on filters and process the file and then eat ur sandwich while watching the file turn out on it's own.... It feels like a piece of the puzzle is either incorrect or missing.... The latter ; I'd say....

Any and every suggestions are welcome.... A detailed tutorial which I followed is here :
Edit sound and delete subtitles - Digital Video Forums

What seems to be the Officer, Problem ???

P.S. : I don't think this has anything to with it ; but just incase ; I'm running 32-bit Vista and the versions of the softwares I'm using are :

Virtualdub 1.76
MSU Subtitle Remover 2.0b

And before I sign off ; if any of u have a better method of doin# this ; do suggest it.... It's fun to learn this s**t !!!

Re: Remove Subtitles from an *.avi video

I'm not an expert in video/audio editing. The only thing that pops up in my mind right now is a chance that the tools you are using are not compatible with vista.

I'll forward this thread to one of my Video editing pro friends and he may be able to figure it out.

Did you try VobSubStrip ? Free-Codecs.com :: Download VobSubStrip 0.11 : VobSubStrip strips unwated subtitle streams

here is a guide on how to use it : VobSub Language Editing Guide

Well in that case a simple compatibility issue would've solved the problem.... But it hasn't.... Maybe the compatibility helped in preventing the software from crashing ; but it definately didn't help with removing the subtitles

Re: Remove Subtitles from an *.avi video

simply pick the file and place it alone in a folder, if it still shows subtitles, probably it uses embedded subtitles which cannot be removed.

Ok I'm gonna make this very easy for you.... See this :



Those FRENCH subtitles are NOT hard-coded or embedded, but the English ones (FOX WIDESCREEN) are.... I wanna remove the FRENCH ones not the English ones ; I'm an Engineer too u know.... Kapisco ??

And as I said earlier ; I have done my basics.... No offense but that wasn't exactly a suggestion or a solution....

I'll check with the guy from whom I downloaded the original video file (screenshot displayed above) and see if his folder (we're on a LAN connected thru DC++) has the .idx or .sub files....

If he doesn't ; then I dunno what to do.... Basically what it looks like is this : I need a software which will convert the exisiting subs as .idx and .sub files ; then I need to feed these files into Vobsubstrip and then strip the video of the subs.... This is like paying money to the bank so it has money that we can later rob.... Ridiculous !!!

Any help ???

What make you say the French subs are not hard coded? If they are not hard coded, they'll be present in the AVI files folder with a .srt or .sub extension. If you have the AVI file alone in a folder without any other files with it, then the subs are hardcoded.
