    I found this video in spanish and I wanted to add english subtitles to it and I was wondering if there is suck a program where you just import it and it adds subtitles to right where it needs it.

    Is there such a thing, and if so, what program do you recommend.

    ffmpegX (shareware) can add subtitles to video files.
    Handbrake/MediaFork (open source) can add them when you transcode a DVD to a compressed format.
    VLC (open source) can display subtitles (.srt, etc) to a video you are playing.

    What do you mean by automatically? Unless you already have a subtitle file, there's no way for any program using today's technology to know where the subtitles *go*, is there? Or of course what they are. So the best you'll get is something that makes it easy to place them at the right point in the show and type them in easily....

    Or just manually. If not, is automatically impossible?
