I want to add subtitles (srt files) to my movies and watched by apple TV. If I upgrade to QTPro 7 can I burn the subtitles to my movies (mkv, avi and mp4 files).

 

In the QT I have the subtitles option is always OFF, and if I watched in iTunes I have a ballon for CC and undetermined subtitles, but I just can watched them in iTunes if I go to Apple TV this option is not avalilable.

 

I want to add the srt file to my movie in order to watched any place with this option ON.

 

If I move to QTPro can I recode the file?

 

I use to have mkv, avi and mp4 files and the srt file for different languaje subtitles.


QuickTime Pro 7, Mac OS X (10.7.1), Apple TV / iTunes

    It is possible to use .SRT files with movies in QuickTime Player by installing Perian. However this does not work on the AppleTV 2.

     

    I suggest you look at these two program. The first is Submerge, this 'burns in' the subtitles so they are part of the video, with this approach the subtitles are always on and cannot be turned off since they are now part of the video itself. The second program is iSubtitle, this adds the subtitles as a proper QuickTime subtitle track which can be turned on or off, you can even include multiple languages. As the subtitles are converted to a proper QuickTime subtitle track they will work on an AppleTV 2 unlike a separate .SRT file.

     

    Both programs are actually produced by the same company. See http://www.bitfield.se/index.html

    Try Subtitle Writer on Mac App Store. It's for Quicktime Player X and iOS devices. I don't know Apple TV works or not.
