In re "opening" m4v files...
I've tried several files, and there are issues with the rendered timestamps.

In the example below, a sync done with closed captions using CCExtractor (ripped from a different source than the video at hand) and the extraction resulting from SE (using the original video):


SE Extraction from an M4V file:

Sync with CCExtractor Captions:

When playing the original M4V video using QuickTime, the embedded subtitles are in sync with it, and are a very close match to the CCExtractor captions.
The extracted captions through SE, on the other hand, greatly vary.

 

- The first line is merged with the second one. I couldn't find any other instance on this file, nor it happened using other files.

- While the "Start Time" is a very close match to the vast majority of lines, there are great many instances where either:
   . they are displayed earlier than the CCs, and/or
   . their display time is far too short.

   . the break <br /> is ignored in some instances, resulting in the lumping of  two words. (See line 15 in the first Jpeg)
- When playing the original file with QuickTime, the display times are ok. So apparently this is an issue within SE.

 

Here is the first line, using the embedded subtitles in the m4v, as viewed with QuickTime:

Mind you, I realise SE´s main goal is to facilitate the editing of subtitles, and that these issues aren't the main concern. No worries =).

 

Just to be thorough,  here are the two srt files:

DwaB.CC.srt

DwaB.SE.srt

SE 3.3.15 is out

 

Many minor fixes and improvements - https://github.com/SubtitleEdit/subtitleedit/releases

Also, in Options -> Settings -> Tools - you can enable and test the new 'no-break-after-list' which can make improve the automatic line breaking some what :)

 

@Alice: Thx for the info - I do not know much about the mp4 format, only what I can read here: http://wiki.multimedia.cx/index.php?title=QuickTime_container#stbl

If anyone know about how to decode subtitles boxes from mp4, do let me know!

Nick, you are doing a fantastic job. Before I try the new version, I have two questions:

1. Could you add D-cinema options to show when I start Subtitle Edit?

The way it works now is that I have to save subtitles in D-cinema format

and only after that do the DCinema properties show up in File menu.

2. Could you add two empty lines at the end of the SubRip export files?

I'm asking because some programs don't show the last subtitle if it doesn't have two empty lines after it.

 

Thank you and keep up the great work!

1) When you change format in the toolbar to DCinema (what version of DCinema do you use?) the "File" - > "DCinema properties..." should be visible.

 

2) Hm, you should probably write the author of the program you're having trouble with... as the program has a bug ;)

Thanks, Nikse, as always.

and re issues importing subs from mp4s... no worries, but I hope someone can help you figuring out what is happening.
Keeping up SE with your constant improvements are making me more than happy.

1) Ahaaaaaaa... OK. Actually, what I was doing was opening a SRT file, then going to Save As... I expected DCinema Properties to show in the File menu regardless of the format showing in the toolbar. Sorry.
2) You could be so right. ;) Thanks.

Fantastic, as always, Nikse.

Since the usual situation is that you post an update and some of us say thanks, is there anyway we can help YOU out? I'll be sure to send a donation even though I already did when I started using SubtitleEdit.

Here's a question I'd like to know the answer to: How many of us here have actually sent at least a small donation via PayPal? I mean, Nikse is doing better work than many profit-oriented companies and I'm wondering how many of us here recognize this and appreciate it, truly.

 

All the best, Nikse and the rest of you folks here.
