VirtualDub including subtitles

Postby kapparomeo » Sat Jun 15, 2013 4:24 am

Hello again, everyone. I have recently reinstalled VirtualDub after changing to a new computer, and it's started doing something odd that I haven't encountered before - when running the video, it transfers subtitles along with it.

[Link to screenshot and AviSynth code]


While not a critical issue, it is a great inconvenience to crop them out and I'd like to be rid of it. If anyone's encountered this before, a way to delete the subtitles from the VirtualDub transfer would be a great help!

A few technical details, if they're any help:

VirtualDub version: 1.9.11
AviSynth version: 2.5.8.5
Ut Video Suite codec version: 13.0.1
The video source is a download, but it's not hardsubbed!

It's because you're
A) using DirectShowSource and
B) haven't configured the subtitle renderer correctly. VSFilter is known to cause this issue if you have pre-buffering enabled.

The easiest solution is 'don't use DirectShowSource'.

What function would you recommend? The only other one I've used is FFVideoSource, but if there's another plugin that's more appropriate I'd welcome a tip.

FFVideoSource works, just make sure you're using an up-to-date version.

LwLibavVideoSource (part of LSMASHSource) should also probably work, but I haven't done much testing with it.
