How to use DivXLand Media Subtitler

DivXLand Media Subtitler is not difficult to use.


You can create a new subtitle file manually from the File > New menu; but the recommended procedure is to manually create a text file (using a plain text editor such as Notepad) containing all the dialogs spoken in your movie in order of occurrence, one line below the other. To split a caption in two lines, insert a “|” character (without quotes) in the position where the line should be split. Then save this file as a plain text document (txt file).

Notice, you can also use an existing subtitle file (in one of the supported formats) to modify the contents and timing of the captions, instead of creating a brand new file.

When opening a subtitle file, Media Subtitler will automatically apply the correction rules defined at the Timing Management section from the General Settings dialog window, if the current settings are set to apply them on file load only.


This is the process of synchronizing the text file captions with the desired video file. Simply open the target text or subtitle file containing the video file captions from the File menu in DivXLand Media Subtitler and then open the media file to be subtitled.
