DivX Subtitles?

5 posts in this topic

I have recently run across a pile of avi files with soft-coded subs.
So, yes, I can switch them on and off.
They are yellow and placed in the middle of the screen!
I decided to mux them and copy to an .srt file.
I opened the avi using My MP4Box GUI
Saw the AVC video stream, and the MP3 audio stream.
And, the text - DivX Subtitle.
Could not demux or extract, however.

Does anyone know how to extract these - or - how to shift the subs to lower on the screen?

Thank you.

If you can turn them on and off it means they're embeded, so technically you should be able to extract them and convert them to .srt.

Which you already did apparently. But you say your subs are DivX subtitles.

I think .ass and some other formats enable position tags, but not .srt.

Do you have a release's name for me to check, and be sure we understand each other? :)

I have now researched this somewhat extensively.

Apparently there is no way to demux or extract xsubs (DivX subs) from an avi container.

The most recent post I found was from 2012, wherein someone had contacted the developer of DXSB and the developer admitted he had no idea how to extract the file from the avi container.

I suppose this query can be closed.  Grrr.
