Additional Notes (Questions asked on the net) Q. I want to add a .srt file with subtitles to .avi. What do I use, is it Nero Recode or Nero Vision and is it then possible to burn it to a DVD with them? A. Use Recode. Recode DVDs and Videos. You can add your subtitles and burn in Recode. If you add a subtitle to a video file, please make sure that you select Recode DVDs and Videos to Nero Digital. You can only export or burn this file with a subtitle into a Nero Digital (mpeg-4) format. Q. How can I burn .avi video with .srt subtitles? Im trying to use Nero Vision Express. Is there any way for me to input the subtitles into the movie and burn it? A. To just burn you dont need Nero Vision Express (NVE), you can just use Nero Burning ROM. To convert with subs using NVE you would have to hard encode (Hard coded means you will always see the subtitles and cant switch them off theyre burned into the video switchable meaning you can turn them on or off)since I dont think it supports subtitles streams. Just be sure that the video file & the SRT subtitle file have exactly the same base name, capitalised exactly the same, and in the same folder (good to keep everything else out of this folder as well)

If you had named your SRT as lets say My-Movie.SRT many apps wouldnt recognise it.

Example: MyMovie.AVI MyMovie.SRT

If your movie is longer than a standard DVD format (just < 4.7 GB) Nero will warn you if you want to shrink to fit. Nero doesnt always do the best job of shrinking, but its usually good enough for most uses. Finally, if the AVI video is PAL and you want NTSC, Nero will also warn you about this [again, it doesnt always do a good job of format conversion, but its good enough for most general purposed].

Also youll need to select the output format - Im assuming youll be doing a DVD to play on most standalone DVD players? If so, Nero will guide you thru this process. Otherwise, you could create an SDVCD assuming youd want this, meaning if the video is short enough itll fit onto a standard CD (700MB).

If youre not sure what youre doing, I always recommend buying a few re-writeable DVDs [DVD-RW] - only a bit more than DVD-R which cant be re-used. This way you wont be cursing yourself out if the first burn doesnt come out exactly the way you want.

Play around with the settings in Nero if you want, and you can also create some pretty nice basic menus, buttons, additional screen, etc.
