On another page in the wiki I demonstrated how one can use DVDStyler to burn a video file containing a movie onto a DVD. On this page I am going to demonstrate how to use DVDStyler to include subtitles on that movie DVD.

The DVDStyler application was installed as part of the original process. Watch the video on that page if you have not already installed DVDStyler.

To add subtitles to the DVD, we'll need an additional piece of software called "ffmpeg." This command-line utility runs in the OSX Terminal window. It is used to pre-process the subtitles before they can be brought into DVDStyler and burnt onto the DVD.

ffmpeg is installed from the OSX Terminal window by entering the following two commands:

ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"

brew install ffmpeg

The following video will demonstrate how this is done and then show how to use ffmpeg and DVDStyler to add subtitles to a DVD:
