Subtitle Strangeness

Jan 26, 2012 at 10:33 PM

First off, I've been using VidCoder for the last 3-4 revisions, and it is an awesome GUI, so much better than the even the new Handbrake GUI. I thank you for your work and time on what has become my favorite method to convert my DVD collection to .mkv.  Now on the the problem I'm having:

It appears that VidCoder is handling subtitles somewhat differently than HandBrake itself.  I say this because I have encoded an episode or two in both and the issue does not appear to occur using Handbrake but does with VidCoder.  For reference I believe I was using the most current build of HandBrake something like svn 4470. 

I am mostly, well actually entirely, encoding Anime DVD's at the moment, and the subtitles are coming out wrong.  It seems that about half the subtitles never display, and they are not out of synch, in need of stretching/shrinking, or missing to begin with.  After watching sections of 300+ episodes, it seems that either some of the subs are displaying for too long and keeping later subs from appearing, or sometimes appear too early in the video by a line or two and manage to keep lines both preceding and proceeding them from appearing.  By backtracking in the video after one of these flawed subs plays, it is sometimes possible to get one of the missing likes to display for a split second or two, so I know I'm not missing the subs outright, and they appear when they should from what I can tell, so the basic timing isn't off either.  Ripping the subs with Vobsub and muxing them in manually produces the correct results, albeit with the needed delay adjustments at times, so I know that the original subs themselves aren't flawed either.  Out of curiosity I tried out the current build of Handbrake and the subs were perfect, so I'm guessing that VidCoder is handling things at least a bit differently. 

While normally I wouldn't bother to bring up something like this, because manually ripping and muxing the subs isn't all that difficult.  I am planning to convert my entire collection of 4000+ DVD/Blu-Ray's, and the added time involved, considering how much I've got to do, is daunting.

Hope this helps in someway to make VidCoder even better!  If you need to know more I'll be happy to provide any information I can get you.

If you could get a log of each encode (In VidCoder and the latest HandBrake SVN) that would be helpful. That *might* highlight some setting that's getting passed in differently.

Okay, I'll queue up the same episode in each and post what I get.

Alright, I have the logs now.  The settings on the encodes are as close to the same as I could make them.  First VidCoder 1.2.6.0:

Okay hope that helps!

Nuts. I don't see anything different about the way the subtitles were encoded. Hopefully it is some bug in whatever HandBrake snapshot I'm using and will be fixed when I update to the latest.

Jan 27, 2012 at 4:12 AM

Yeah it looked the same to me too, though I'm no expert.  I'll keep doing things as I am for now, and update this discussion when I've played with your next release.

Jan 31, 2012 at 10:35 PM

As a result of some very strange subtitle structure on one of my DVD's, I ended up extracting the screwed up subs and remuxing them in with mkvtoolnix as a last resort and it worked.  So I can now say that the subtitles themselves appear to be perfectly fine, so it must have something to do with how VidCoder is synching the subs to the video, at least that's the only thing that comes to mind.  Just thought I'd say something here in case it could be of help.
