If you want to play episodes on lets say your PS3, 360 or even just have the subtitles and video in one AVI file use this tutorial. To do this you will need:

Avidemux 2.5 - Download here
http://fixounet.free.fr/avidemux/download.html (Choose your OS)

After downloading and installing the program run it and follow these steps:

1) Go to File>Open and open your video of choice

2) Under Video change Copy to MPEG-4 ASP (Xvid)
*If this video format is not shown you must download the "Xvid codec pack"

3) Still under video click Filters, then go to subtitles, double click ASS a screen will pop up. Click Open and choose the subtitle file of choice (.ass)

4) From that popup you can also change the subtitle size and the margin sizes. Click ok and then preview the video. If the subtitles are showing then you got it. If they are not fiddle with the sizes (Margin, font scale, spacing etc.

5) When you got the video and subs working together go to
file>save>save video

It may take a while because the video has to completely re-encode.

Hope I helped :)

Thanks for this, been looking for even simpler ways to play files on my ps3 with subtitles! :D
yeah i tried this on my mac using both the mac app and the windows app (via crossover) and it's not working. when i click open using the button (not by double clicking on .ass / ssa) it says "problem reading XML filters" any idea? I'm using both the video and sub's from this website on the hospital batsu game

I got the same problem that you, i think is maybe one problem i ahve with my .net frameworks but i really dont know, but you can use another way to hardsubbing it and is using the Virtualdub http://www.virtualdub.org/, using the filter form Aegisub(you need to download and install to get the filter) http://www.aegisub.org/, you just need the installation of Aegisub,you have to go to the installation folder of "Aegisub->Csri" there you will find a file called "VSFilter-Aegisub.dll" you have to change the name to "VSFilter-Aegisub.vdf"(the filters format for virtualdub),then open Virtualdub and open you video, later you go to "Video->Filters.." then you select"Add.." and then "Load.." fint the "VSFilter-Aegisub.vdf" that is on the installaiton folder of Aegisub, then after load it you will se two new filter you have to select the "Text Sub Gabest" then just find you subs and its all, then just chose your compression(the only compression that have worked for me is "Xvid on Single Pass")

This maybe will fix the problem, after you encoded it you will have a file to easy manage.

Note: This only works for ".avi". Also the Virtualdub dont have mac version i dont know if it works :S

Mode99Rox YouTube Account, havent uploaded any videos but in some weeks uploading Hotel Men Sub Spanish.
EDIT: o.k I solved my own problem. ;) but I have a bigger one now :D when I am trying to encode the new vid. with subs , which takes some time, the process suddenly "crashes" witout any reasons and I can´t read the report why it crashed....mmhm any ideas ?
Haha, that usually what happens with me too... I was told that perhaps my graphic card isn't powerful enough, something like that...

Try with other programs to hardsub like Format Factory! You'll find tutorials through the web.
The thing about this is...I was trying to hardsub no laughing hotel man and basically the subtitle coding shibatabread will popup

Example

<verdana=0911022><ARIAL0220202[Translationby shibatabread]

I guess I'll try format factory.
I found a faster way to do this, using a program named AviRecomp. You end up with an avi with the subtitles burned in just like normal but this is soooooo much faster. Basically (and this is leaving out a lot of detail) you don't have to re-encode the whole avi to get the subtitles in. Follow this guide:

mp.
yea what madpanic said...avi recomp is better and faster
Does AVIRecomp work with MP4 files though, or do you need to reincode them to AVI?
i think anything works TK
thanks a lot for the tutorial ^_^
Thank you very much for this tutorial, JAndrade :) I tried to make a hardsub with one part of the Hotel Employee Batsu Game but didn´t work 100%. The video movement was damaged, doesn´t flow, get stuck every second. I don´t know how to put in words lol. But the hard sub worked fine in a +3GB .avi file with all .ass effects. It took me 4hs to see the results. I loved the Avidemux 2.5 and would like to know what I did wrong, or should do to get a video flowing with the subtitle :) is there something more to change in the config? thanx

P.S: One thing I did before the first time subbing is converting the original file to .avi with the format factory, because I only read about .avi files being sub. I don´t know if was the problem.

On the next day:
I tryied again using the tutorial, but with the Police Batsu file. Smaller avi file then the Hotel Employee Batsu file, and did work perfectly! :inlove:
This time the Avidemux asked me to Build VBR time map, and asked me to Rebuild frame because say index is not up to date. I don´t remember if it was asked during the first time I used :$

Now I have to work, but when I come back home I´ll try one more time with the Hotel Employee Batsu Game.

One more time, thank you very much!
