UPDATED! - You don't have to kill off DirectVobSub!
Ok... I've completed my tests with RC1...
If you never got subs before, RC1 won't help you.
However, based on the other information provided in this forum, I have figured out why subtitles do not show.
Subs won't show under the following conditions:
- Directvobsub is installed
- Haali is installed with vobsub set to autoload
- !IMPORTANT! you have another video steam decoder decoding the video instead of ffdshow
DirectVobsub is the reason why no subs show up. In its default configuration does not do anything when tversity transcode.
The next thing has to do with the video stream. With Haali now no longer doing anything about the subs, if you had something else decoding the video (eg CoreAVC, xVid) instead of ffdshow, then ffdshow VIDEO filter won't load (duh!). No ffdshow = no directshow processing for subs.
So you have THREE options:
a) kill off DirectVobSub and those other pesky video decoders and let ffdshow decode everything
b) enable ffdshow to process RAW video (disabled by default). This means that ffdshow video decoder will load no matter what video is fed in.
c) !NEW! fix up DirectVobSub's configuration, you go into DirectVobSub's properties (not the runtime one; check your start menu or do rundll32.exe VSFIlter.dll,DirectVobSub). In the General tab, change Loading to Always Load
Debugging this process can be a lot less painful if you find a copy of Graphedit (graphedt.exe) and have it render the DirectShow graph.
