subtitle problem with sn2592

Post by zorglou »

Hello
very good job for this release !! and many thanks
the subtitle work very well for me, but i have still a problem (sorry for my so poor english)
i make MKV/x264 with 2 languages and subtitle, work fine with Plex and VLC but the subtitle are near the middle of the movie ! It is possible to decide the position of the subtitle during the encoding ?
I encode with anamorphic strict : is that the problem for the subtitle ?
Thank you again

Re: subtitle problem with sn2592

Post by JohnAStebbins »

We pass the subtitles through with no modification. There is no way to change the subtitle position. vobsubs have a relatively complex instruction code that says when and where to show the subtitle. Decoding those instructions and re-coding them for new positions was more effort than I wanted to put into it and would have been very error prone. The player is given the dimensions of the original frame and the position of the subtitle in the original frame. It also knows the the dimensions of the resulting encoded video. So it should be able to make an intelligent decision about where to place the subtitle. Unfortunately, several players do a straight linear scale horiz and vert to calculate the position. A better method would be to note the obvious that the horiz and vert scale are not the same and assume the more common case of cropped video. Then pick the dimension that is not cropped and use it's scale.

Anyway, if you really want the subtitles in their original positions, you can set cropping to 0. This isn't usually recommended because encoding black bars is wasteful and/or affects video quality. But it's all you can really do if your player isn't cooperating.
