Submerge is the easiest way to add hardcoded subtitles to your movies and TV shows.

The subtitled movie will play on almost anything, like your computer, smartphone, portable device, or game console. Submerge supports many text-based subtitle formats as input, and you can export the subtitled movie for the most common devices in just one click. Submerge also has a built-in subtitle search-and-download tool that makes finding the right subtitles really easy. It also has a fullscreen player built-in, so you can watch the subtitled movie directly within Submerge. All this at the unbeatable price of $9.

Overall a good program with some very poor customer support. My copy of Submerge stopped working suddenly (quitting right after I began the application). I contacted Bitfield, and they told me that I would have to buy the newer version to receive more...

All this app needs is a basic editor and some sync / timing features and I could delete all the other apps I have for working with subs.

this is an amazing product.
i had been looking for something like submerge for quite a while, meaning to add my own subs to home movies, and everything i got to was either too expensive or plain bad. submerge is VERY fast, VERY easy to use, has great features.
Support was really amazing. I had made a mistake when purchasing and sent an emotional e-mail thinking i would get no answer, was answered within minutes, and helped out-- even out of the way, to my utter satisfaction.
i highly recommend it!!!

I contacted Bitfield, and they told me that I would have to buy the newer version to receive support. That sucks...guess their support for prior versions vanishes right after an update.

I'm avoiding their stuff in the future.

Dear Ben, you don't have to purchase a new version to get support. What I told you was that the older version was no longer in development and no longer supported on new systems, and that's a totally different story. I support all customers whatever version of my software they use.

Submerge has saved me in the very last few hours of my deadline. It's a brilliant product, and I appreciate so much the fact that you can insert subtitles (.srt files and possibly others) to a video (14 minutes of 1080p) and flatten it in just under 2 minutes.

The ability of also choosing whatever font you want, and the plate feature are just amazing. Thank you for building such a beautiful product. :)

Great piece of software. Works as advertised. I use it to subtitle movies for clients and it paid back its cheap price many times over. Also: great support from the developer.

The apps (Submerge and iSubtitle) run perfectly – and so does the support: competent, friendly and (perhaps most important) 100% patient. Thanks to Jörgen!

Does exactly what I need it to do, does it flexibly, and does it as quickly as my computer can handle. What's particularly nice about this app is the responsiveness of the developer. When I started using the app to burn in subtitles I noticed that it wasn't adding line breaks when a chunk of text grew too large and overran the borders of the image. In under three hours the developer has responded to my email about the matter, addressed the issue, and mailed me a link to a version which fixed the problem. I have since used this software to output 1200 video files with burned-in titles and it has been stable, fast, and quick. I recommend Submerge wholeheartedly.

What can you ask of an app other than it actually works? Well, maybe that it be reasonably priced to boot? Enter Submerge, the one-stop subtitle quick fix for all your subtitling needs. Though it's easy to use, it is nonetheless loaded with features. It even has a great built-in player. Though I was a bit skeptical at first, I was gladly surprised to find it worked like a dream, no hassles. Though I did end up having some questions on some aspects of Submerge as I kept exploring the app, customer service was nothing short of AMAZING. No run-arounds, no waiting, no useless replies. Just straight-forward answers that get you going. But I guess when you are dealing with a solid piece of software such as this, any answer to your question is the right one. Thanks Bitfield and keep up the great work.
Definitely more than your money's worth.

Clean interface but the drawer is not used nowadays for OSX application. But this is a minor issue.
The only problem I encounter - no subtitles on some mkv I tried.

In general a good and cheap application.

Really a great app, fast to coding and deadly simple to use.

I did some test with my iphone, ipod, ps3 and xbox (using program's presets)

I encoded 2 h.264 avi file and a full-hd mkv file for my tests, all with an external .srt source for subs.

Iphone: Very fast encoding for all 3 videos, the output files were flawless.

Ipod: Same as Iphone, fast decoding and perfect output.

ps3 (used both 480p and 720p format for the mkv's conversion, custom for the avis): the 480p files were perfect, the 720p file is fine (a little too much pixelating,I think using custom options will make it perfect).

Xbox: The 3 files were perfect, oddly I had to recode an .avi (seems corrupted on my first try, but i think it was a computer's fault, not program)

5/5 for this beautiful piece of app, the best both in Mac/Windows environment (I have not found a software in windows capable of the same performance)
