    this seems to work just fine!
    tried the recode and the subtitles now show as expected in quicktime so i guess they'll show on the ipod to
    will test tomorrow with some other rips!

    Did You Try Subtitles

    Did you try transcoding with added subtitles?

    i have only one remark after viewing the vid on my ipod:
    the subtitles are to 'weak'
    as if the contrast is not right
    so this makes the subtitle very hard to read...

    might i propose a small change to the profiles system peer?

    how about a user_devices.ini as well as devices.ini, as when i upgraded i lost the xvid profile i had added to devices.ini

    it seems if you edit that file and then upgrade, it gets replaced instead of merged, so a seperate file for user's own profiles seems an idea.....?

    Reporting the same issue, however I *think* this is only happening with interlaced sources when I de-interlace them, unable to check at the moment as I'm at work.

    There are a few things that can cause weak subtitles (depends a little on what "weak" means).

    Of course, there is AnyDVDs option for subtitle transparency.

    And then there is a theoretical possibility that CloneDVD mobile gets the palette information for subtitles wrong - the effect would be that the color of the subtitles and their outlines are exchanged (or in effect inverted).
    But I don't know of any current DVD title, that would have this effect.

    And last of course: if you choose a different resolution than the screen of the device actually has, the subtitles will suffer from resizing.
    So for the iPod you should use 320x240 and nothing else.

    sorry for being slack on my first post, had people asking me stuff in the office.

    This happened on Family Guy Season 3 (R2 UK release), created with the Zen Vision W profile at the max bitrate.

    It's not my anydvd settings, and it doesn't appear to happen on all titles. The subtitles do appear to be somewhat transparent.

    If you'd like me to do some testing I'd be happy to tonight when I get home. Be specific about the things you'd like me to try :D

    Can you send me the IFO files from that disc to bugs _at_
    That should help.

    Also: did you encode the movie to the native resolution (I think that's supposed to be 480x272)? Anything above that wouldn't win you anything anyway, but only cost space...

    i disabeld deinterlace but that didn't change the subtitle
    it's like they are to small to be displayed
    when i play the movie on the ipod, then it's like i'm missing a pixel at the bottom and some letters are like missing pixels in the middle vertical line

    i'll try to encode in the normal ipod resolution to see if that changes the subtitles

    So, for what reason were you not encoding in the iPods normal resolution?
  17. Matt

    Matt Well-Known Member

    The disc is in 4:3 format, so it's 3something x 272, I'll send the IFO's tonight, with anydvd off I assume? or on?

    i encoded in the standard ipod profile but then the subtitles are even i guess there is still a glitch in the subtitle handling?

    This problem is more widespread than I thought!
