YouTube subtitle:

0:00:04.130,0:00:09.850 Lorem ipsum vellant volu
ministoccus estodia velitam.

0:00:09.850,0:00:11.790 Lorem ipsum vellant volu
ministoccus estodia velitam.

0:00:11.790,0:00:17.290 Lorem ipsum vellant volu
ministoccus estodia velitam.

According to this site (http://videosubtitles.wordpress.com/2012/10/31/adobe-encore-text-txt-subtitle-format/) subtitle should be in this format:


Encore subtitle:

1 0:00:04.130 0:00:09.850 Lorem ipsum vellant volu
ministoccus estodia velitam.

2 0:00:09.850 0:00:11.790 Lorem ipsum vellant volu
ministoccus estodia velitam.

3 0:00:11.790 0:00:17.290 Lorem ipsum vellant volu
ministoccus estodia velitam.


I save the document as a .txt file. And when I import it to Encore, I get this error message:

"The software that's used to decode the media is not available on this system. Installing the correct decoders for the files you are working with may help to correct the problem."

Very quickly: You can exchange the comma with a blank space with any text editor. Just open the file and go to "Search and Replace" (or however it is called).

The numbering of the subtitles it a little more complicated, but I'm sure there is freeware out there that can do it. I'll search for it later when I have more time. Right now, maybe it helps for you to know that the subtitle format is called "SubRip" or "SRT" and it has the file extension .srt
