No try. No buy.

Jubler is free and does the same (and better).

Hello.
You can get an idea about how SF works by taking a look at the manual : http://www.subsfactory.fr/v2/manuel/manuelen . I will think about creating a demo version.

Let's face it, subtitling is not rocket science. There are a few options available, I'm surprised anyone could get partisan about any.

Subs Factory does what it says it will and it's only €7.

(1) Jubler has an unidentified unsigned developer - so I need to change security settings.
(2) It will not run, because of "Unable to load Java Runtime Environment"
(3) Jubler needs Java, which is not ideal, (although I do use other Java apps - successfully. So I know the runtime is installed).

Open Source is great. Free can also be good.

A fan on both counts. I also don't have a problem recognising and paying for apps that I use and need.

When Jubler worked for me before, it was fine. It doesn't now => not fine.

The no try, no buy is another issue.

Neil, you must have bad luck. I've been using Jubler ever since OpenShiiva went away, and I have never had an issue.

And for the record, Java is not bad - and it works fine...in other words: "ideal." For me, anyway. I recommend Jubler to anyone who wants free versus paid. Pretty simple.

Can I install Chinese traditional characters somehow?

This could be very good application if the 'Concatenate' worked. When I try to concatenate I cannot select any subtitle file: every one one of them is greyed?

I have 10.6.2 in my use.

Excellent app.

Can treat an incredibly large numbr of alphabets, in particular ISO-8859-1 (French). It can rescue defective .txt files (declared unreadable by other apps like Subfix) and make tham usable .srt, to be corrected in Subs Factory or in other apps.

Yyyyyes!
Two in One!

I had two srt files. With the "Concatenate subtiles"
button i realised to connect them in one. It works good!

Downloaded Subs Factory when I found myself trying to sync a movie with an srt file from a different version of the movie. In 3 minutes, Subs Factory had everything working perfectly. The UI isn't perfect -- for instance, pressing the space bar doesn't start and stop the video as it does in so many other video applications, and some features of the interface use modal windows, making the process a little bit less convenient than it could be. Still, this is definitely worth a look if you're futzing around with srt files.

I tried Sears first but the app constantly crashes on launch. Next checked MacUpdate for something else and came across this.

Excellent app. Good documentation and works as advertised. A quick look through the manual, tried some stuff out and 15 minutes later my subtitles were synced.

Well done.

I just want to convert a sub file to srt. but opening the sub file takes about a half an hour or crashes the app. If I do manage to get one open after a half hour, the encoding is wrong. But when I choose another encoding to see if that's the right one, it's another half hour wait or crash. I think life is too short for this app.

Completely agree. Absolutely useless. Cann't even open a video file in the first place.
There are more funny things about it, such as not showing up in the overview of running apps. It is hiding its windows for some reason.

Hi, Great software. But I can't seem to see the subtitles I've created in the subtitle window. The subtitles are there, the Subtitles pallet is open, but nothing displays in it. I have version 1.3.2.

I basically need to see the result of my work.

Really useful application. However I can't get the concatenate feature to work in version 1.2. It works well in version 1.1.1 but in 1.2 when I try to load the second set of subtitles all files in the open dialogue are grayed-out.

I'm running OS X 10.5.8 and this bug happens on two different Macs.

Subs Factory can normally open the same formats as QuickTime Player. Be sure that QT Player can open your .mkv file. If it does not, try to install the suitable codec, for example through Perian.
On top of that, if your video is HD, Subs Factory may have trouble to read it (too big). Get a lower quality version to create subtitles.
