I'm trying to use Avidemux to add subtitles (from Gnome Subtitles, .srt file) to an AVI movie. Never used either one before.
Here's the content of the .srt file:
00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:03,500
<i>John Doe (c) 2011</i>
I followed the instructions here:
At the end of the process, you Save the file. When I Save the file, there's no name in the Filename box. So I give it a name "subtitle test", and close Avidemux.
Voila! When I play the saved file "subtitle test" - the actual subtitle on the video reads: "subtitle test" in italics (no quotation marks). Nothing in the .srt file shows up on the video. In other words, the subtitle has the *format* I put in the .srt file, but not the correct text.
Why is the newly saved filename being used as the subtitle itself?
Thanks for any advice.
