    Handbrake seems to do the trick.

    I think QuickTime Pro can do this, but I don't know how user friendly it would be. You can check out the long user guide at Apple's website to make sure. The guide has step by step descriptions on how to do a lot of audio and video stuff.

    I don't know the answer either, but just to let you all know. I'm also interested in learning this stuff. I'm deaf myself, and I know several other deaf people interested in technology, and subtitle support on OSX and its variants has been a hot talking point recently.

    I have used it a few times... although not recently. As I recall it definitely solved the problem that Visual Hub and Handbrake couldn't

    And where do you get these .srt files from?

    Do enthusiasts interpret and enter them all in for you?

    Or are they OCR interpretations from a DVD vobsub?

    The latter requiring significant manual correction.

    The way I see it there is no decent mechanism available today for subtitles, however, what you have described is pretty nice, as long as you can get the .srt files from somewhere and can massage the video into the correct forma.

    IMHO there are still too many gaps in the subtitle arena that need to be filled by the content and media suppliers.

    Cheers, Ed.

    im from israel so we have alot of groups that translate the movie by hearing or translating a written text (english subtitles).
    submerge is a great idea but im a windows user (the switch id going to be in feb..i hope) so .. not good for me

    any converter that uses quicktime should include the subtitles, but without acceleration i find it seriously slow
