Subtitled videos on an iPhone?
January 12, 2009 3:48 AM   Subscribe

I have a bunch of .avi files with separate .srt subtitle files. How can I convert them to .mp4, so I have a video with subtitles that plays on my iphone? I'm using a Mac, running Leopard.

Submerge or RoadMovie.

The above two programs seem to be shareware; mp4box will do this for free by converting SRT to MPEG-4 timed text and re-muxing the AVI to MP4, but I don't know of a good GUI for OS X.

ffmpegx converts every format, and has a subtitle option in the Filter tab that should work for you.

I've done this successfully with ffmpegx, but it only worked if I used the mencoder codes, not the ffmpeg ones.
