    the power brick to my external hdd which houses my 600gb of anime died sometime last night (im guessing while i was asleep) so until i decide to get a replacement sata caddy or hooked up internally (muhhahaa) there will be no anime for me :( :( :( Im stuck with a poorly emulated version of Gundam Dynasty 2, not to mention all my porn was on that drive too.....


    CURSE YOU AQUA SCUMMM!!!!!!!

    That's also the last one word post you'll see from me unless I go on here partially sober again (just got back from a barbecue and I'm NOT going to bed at half 10...
    I'll check out his other death note strip tomorrow morning when I'm more awake.

    How can you separate the subtitles in a .mkv file to a .sub, .srs etc. file format?

    I wanted to convert the .mkv files into something my new phone can play (.avi, .mp4) WITH the subtitles. So far I'm only able to convert the file itself without the subtitles. The converter can include subtitles but as a separate file that must be selected and loaded during conversion of the file.

    you'd have to demux the files into seperate audio, video and subtitle files and then recode them back together later in the formats you want.

    dont ask me how to do that as i havent a clue - i'm still trying to figure out how to pronounce demux

    Use MKVextract GUI to demux streams from mkv's (even subtitles).

    This is a little complicated, so bear with me.

    It takes a little configuration, but if you have a proper codec pack (if not, grab this: http://cccp-project.net/ In fact, I suggest you uninstall any other codec pack, and just grab that one anyway), go to Haali Media Splitter's configuration app (located in the start menu under Combined Community Codec Pack/Filters), and set up your default languages like this:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Next, download and install AVIsynth. http://sourceforge.net/projects/avi... 2.5/AviSynth 2.5.2/AviSynth_252.exe/download

    Then download and install Super. (You can also use MediaCoder, if you tell it to use directshow decoding as well. It's the encoder I prefer, but is more difficult to use for a novice).

    Run Super, and check the DirectShow Decode box.

    [​IMG]

    That part is very important for hard subbing styled subs. If you don't set up Haali properly, and use Haali, AviSynth and DirectShow Decoding, styled subs end up as plain, unstyled text. And .ass subs end up with extra characters, because the programs read the Italics, bold and other tags in the subs as text, and display the tags. Not only that, but subs that are placed over signs won't show up on the sign, but at the bottom of the screen instead.

    Pick the settings that your phone can handle, point it to the file you want to convert, and start the process.

    This is exactly how I convert for my iPhone. It took weeks for me to finally figure out the right combination of progs to pull this off. lol.

    Thanks Wile E. I'll be going through your instructions now. Don't worry about the first step though, I use CCCP for quite some time already. :)

    I cant believe what an idiot I have been...I watch anime every night when I go to bed. I have a 17" LCD and I just watch till I fall asleep. I have been using the speakers built into the monitor and never thought much about it till I was at my bros house (50+" plasma and crazy surround sound) and we saw "Whisper of the heart" OMG!!! the soundtrack was spectacular (movie was great too)..

    OK so I get home yesterday and thought why not hook my Logitech Z2300s to my bedroom TV and VOILA the anime is now 1000X better... I cant believe it took me so long to figure that out.:rolleyes:

    My pleasure. Hard subbing anime can be such a PITA due to the relative lack of info. And if you do find info, it's old, or buried in a thread (like my post would be). Took forever for me to find a universal solution that did the job properly.

    I'll add it to the OP tomorrow after work.

    Yeah, it can be a pain. Not knowing where the stuff is and then you know me... I'll confuse a doctor saying I had chest pains.. lol...

    Thanks for the bits.

    If you want to know a few more movies that are worth watching on a massive screen with surround sound (make sure you down*cough* buy the high def versions).

    Paprika.
    10 Centimeters Per Second.
    The Place Promised in our Early Days.

    Both have an animation quality that tops Studio Gibli easily.

    I just saw "The Place Promised" and it was cool, Il put the other 2 in my Queue....

    I really got to get this 24" hooked up by Hdmi and I saw blue ray player the other day for $58.

    The big screen is gonna be quite a bit down the road. But I am really gonna be picking up some more Z2300 sets to place all over my house...

    Thx Morpha for the movies...
