Linux: wrote small program to make .srt subtitle files fro..

Archived from groups: rec.video.desktop (More info?)

wget http:/panteltje.com/panteltje/subtitles/dvbtextsubssrt-0.3.tgz
or

This is actually a rework from dvbtextsubs from Dave Chapman, that
program only has xml output.
I added .srt output.

So now you can grab for example BBC subtitles and end up with a .srt file.

This is how I use it for mplayer to make subs:

# Tune BBC2 on Astra2 with xdipo, use pids 2320 2321 2322
# You can also use dvbtextsubssrt to tune, if you have no positioner
# like I do of cause
cat /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0 > q2.ts

# record
cat q2.ts | dvbtextsubssrt -r 2321 888 > q2.srt

# demux and re-multiplex so mplayer time start at zero.
cat q2.ts | ts2pes 2320 2322 > q2.pes
es_demux q2.pes q2.mp2 q2.mpv
tcmplex-panteltje -o q2.mpg -i q2.mpv -0 q2.mp2

# play
mplayer q2.mpg

mplayer will now use the q2.srt file for subs.

You can also use transcode or mencoder to encode to DivX,
and use the .srt file in a standalone player.

    If you have nothing to contribute do not contribute it!
    And that also goes for the last MS windows user, idiot.

    OK, maybe I was a bit harsh, I asked myself, 'will there be a last MS windows
    user?'
    Yes, there will be.
    And Unix will be there still, it was there long before too.
    As for Easter, well, a day like any other day, may every day be a happy one.

    I don't celebrate Easter. I still can't figure out what the rabbit had to do
    with the resurrection. But I wish others a happy day.

    Unix, Windows.. whatever.. As long as there are apps to run ...

    I think Linux users lose sight of the fact that there are a hundreds of
    millions of Windows systems working at every possible job every day. I find
    the entire discussion about operating systems boring. UNIX is
    incomprehensible for the casual user. mostly because it is too flexible and
    in order to compomise it enough for the common user.. it would end up like
    Windows.

    in the 80's when I was working at a large VFX facility we ushered in the
    first SGI (Iris) machines and it would have been unthinkable that any
    Windows machines could contribute to the CGI workflow in anyway. Now you
    will find a vast number of CGI houses using only windows machines. Of course
    there are plenty with Linux / Windows systems but with respect to your 'last
    Windows user' .. I think the trend is moving away from that possibility. If
    there were ever a flood of apps for Linux I think it would have a good
    chance. I really do not enjoy developing Windows apps with the API approach
    of MS. But it's gotta be done!

    Because of US imperialism, and aggression, more of the still free world will

    You must be joking? For almost any subject there are more free applications
    for Unix / Linux.
    The point is, for any user with 100$ to spare, he can get everything in Linux,
    and buy only a few apps in MS world.
    And often the Unix stuff is university level state of the art, the windows
    stuff deliberately designed broken or limited so you have to buy an upgrade.

    Without support, and zero guaranteed functionality. . If you are telling me
    the quality and quantity of apps in Linux is equivalent.. you are wrong.
    Not only that but these apps are nowhere near as complete as the Win apps ..
    nor do they run on as many hardware variants.

    If you only need one or two apps then sure.. 100 imperialist US dollars will
    get you there.

    Univeristy level 'state of the art'? That's funny as hell. Yes.. that's
    how it works.. You become a student and you think you know everything. And
    those apps are complete, never need upgrades, never fail and run everywhere.
    ok.

    (I'm setting myself up, but I know that going in)

    Nap, if you truely feel, as you stated a couple of posts ago, that you don't
    want to argue *nix vs. MS then don't talk to a *nix user. All talk
    eventually boils down to this same premise. They are physically incapable
    of talking about anything else.

    I have a friend of mine that's been waiting for *nix to overtake MS for 15
    years now. I've almost had to break off the friendship.

    Oh, and the rabbits (and eggs for that matter) are pagan symbols of
    fertility. But don't tell the die-hard christians that. You'll end up with
    another argument that never ends.

    I have a linux system here.. got it in case I was asked to do development
    but hasn;t happened yet. So far its Windows and embedded stuff.. Even the
    OSX development has slowed to a standstill. I was trying to have a rational
    discussion with him but the US Imperialism .. is a problem for him ..

    For me.. Windows is like the prisnoer in the next cell. You HAVE to like him
    for the duration but you really hope he keeps his hands off you.

    So.. Rabbits = Linux!
