SimpleSub is a program for creating and editing .srt format subtitle files. It can also encode the subtitles onto the videos using mencoder. It supports a ‘Preview’ mode that allows full control of MPlayer with it’s on screen display showing the current time for determining display time for subtitles. The editor supports full keyboard control and auto time formatting for ease of entry. SimpleSub also supports “Title Settings” such as font selection, position, size, blur and outline. It comes with several freeware fonts to get you started. “Video Settings” allows you to choose the output formant, video/audio bitrates and codecs for encoding. In addition it supports a “Test Mode” that limits encoding to the first 20 seconds so the titles settings can be viewed and adjusted before comitting to fully encoding the whole video.
