    Is there any good application for converting videos(avi,mpeg etc) with subtitles to dvd-video format?
    I use visualhub but it does not support subtitles.
    What do you suggest?

    Does this mean there is not such application for mac?
    I cannot believe it since macs are supposed to be 'media' computers.

    Are you looking to have the subtitles always on (hardcoded) or user-selectable subtitles)?

    I would like user-selectable subtitles but if this is not possible even have them always on.

    There are a few applications for the Mac.

    This google link will point you in the right direction.

    Is that what you were after ?

    I know about handbrake. But it does dvd-to-divx conversion, right?
    I want to convert divx or any other video with the appropriate subtitles to dvd-video. What is the mac solution?

    I don't know if there is any good all-in-one solution but it can be done. The trick is to first use one program only to convert the video to mpeg2. "DVD video format" or VOB is just mpeg2 packaged in certain way. After that you need a DVD authoring software that supports subtitles. I use MovieGate. There is also Mpeg2Works but I haven't tried it.

    I think in FfmpegX it is possible to do the whole thing in one go (conversion AND authoring the dvd). The drawback is that this way you can't put more than one video on the dvd and there is no support for chapters.

    In FfmpegX it is also possible to make hardsubbed mpeg2s. If you have Toast or some other easy DVD authoring software that does not support subtitles, and you want to put several video files on one DVD, this may be a good way to go.
