I'm unable to include the .srt file (for subtitles) when I burn the image to DVD - how do I do this? According to the documentation, it's supported.

I downloaded the latest version of Sothink Movie DVD Maker yesterday - Version 1 Build 70424

Thanks a bunch!

Hello oceania,

Yes, you can inlude the srt files. I know you are using Sothink DVD Movie Maker program, but sorry for that currently we do not have the tutorial for Movie Maker.

You can take reference the tutorial of Sothink iPod Video Converter, since it is the same method.

If you get any problems, please let us know.

Have a nice day.

Thank you very much Sophia. I really don't want to complain, especially since it's free, but I would like to recommend the instructions be a little more clear because it is confusing.

It says to:
Quote:
1. Install VSFilter (also known as DirectVobSub)

VSFilter (DirectVobSub) is a DirectShow subtitle filter which can render different formats of external subtitle files (such as ".srt", ".sub") onto video during video playback and conversion. Download it here and install.


On the download page it says to read the release notes before downloading...but there's no release notes or instructions.

When I download the newest version of this file, it is named incorrectly vsfilter_20051125.7z - when I rename it to a zip file it says it's corrupted.

So then I download the one after (again no instructions) - all I get is a .dll file - I wasn't sure what to do with it. Fortunately I Googled it.

Full instructions should be put in the tutorial.

So what did was save it to c:/windows/system32

Then run regsvr32 VSFilter.dll


But it works so I'm very happy and grateful...thank you!

Actually I have a couple of more questions.

For some reason I always get the error message "Estimated size (space in need) is beyond the size of the target disk. This might cause the converted files can not be burned successfully. Please reset the converting (recoding)preference."

With the option of: Yes or No

However, that's not true because my target DVD has 4.5 GBs - the image I'm trying to burn is 700-800MBs. I ignore the message by click 'no' and it does burn the image successfully. So something's not right with that error message always coming up.

Second, if you select the checkbox "I want to store the DVD file to a folder and do not burn it to disk at this time" - how do you burn the image at a later date? Do you just add the VOB images?

One suggestion as well, it would be really helpful if the Help talked about what the options mean (e.g. gain, bit rate) there's nothing that indicates which each option actually means or does.

Thanks again!

Sorry it's me again. I have a new problem and I have no idea why this started happening.

After I added files to be converted and burned, I click next- nothing appears under "writing speed" it did before and when I click on next to continue and I get a message saying "please choose a burner, and insert the target DVD" - but there is a blank DVD and I can navigate to the drive through windows explorer.

Recording is enabled...not sure why all of a sudden it doesn't recognize the DVD - however the correct recorder is selected under "select recorder"...any ideas?

Hello oceania,

Thanks a lot a for your suggestions! Even it is a free product, we do appreciate your helpful advices to improve and perfect our program. :D

We have provided it in the help file. Please check Sothink Movie DVD Maker Help>Advanced Configuration>Option

Have you solved your issue "please choose a burner, and insert the target DVD" yet? Since the program need time to recognize your DVD please wait for a while after you inserted the blank DVD on your computer.

Hope that helps and happy weekend. :D

No unfortunately it has been resolved. The DVD has been in there for hours...that's not the problem. Any other ideas? It was working fine before...not sure what happened.

You too :D

Where do I change the recording mode HQ, SP, LP, EP, etc)...this is affecting the quality of the recording for longer videos.

Hello oceania,

Sorry for the reply delayed due to the weekend.

Referring to the "Estimated size (space in need) is beyond ... reset the converting (recoding)preference" message, that's because the encoding settings you set in the program is too high, and the size of the generated file exceed 4.5 GB. You can decrease the settings in Opions>Output> Audio/Video panel and check whether it helps.

If you have choosed option "I want to store the DVD file to a folder and do not burn it to disk at this time." The program will only convert the time but not burn the file this time, if you want to burn the file later, you need yo use burning tools. just like Nero to burn the file.

Hope that helps and have a nice day. :D

Sophia, this goes back to my suggestion about making the Help files more helpful because I don't know what I bit rate or audio gain means and I also don't know what value I should be selecting. If you can please recommend what I should be choosing - I just left the default values.

Will this also fix the audio problem - when it pauses/skips?

I also noticed sometimes green patches (don't know the right terminology) appear on the screen.

Thanks!

I used those settings and the picture quality is horrible! It's very hard to get help.

Hello oceania,

Sorry for the inconvenience. :oops:

If you choose a lower settings of the bit rate, the quality of the file might be decreased and the file will also be smaller. The higher the bit rate is, and the bigger the file will be.

Or you can according to the estimated size of the converted file to adjust the settings. Since different file might have different settings, it is very difficult for us to provide a universal setting which work for all the files. Hope you can understand.

Have a nice day. :D
