Kudos for its applicability on all platforms of Apple products. Delivers quality subtitles [english & other foreign languages] and I deeply appreciate that, since I'm a movie-buff. It did crash twice but that is easy to forget when it delivers such high quality results!

Please send me some crash reports. Haven't seen any crashes for ages so it might be related to some old outdated QuickTime components lurking around in your system. Thx!

Good, simple and easy to do it!

The application doesn't let you created any subtitles on your own, what it does is that it let you put SOFT subtitles, meaning that it won't change or alter the original movie and it has a resolution-independent rendering, so your titles will look as good on a 50in plasma HDTV as they would on an iPod touch. The advantage of this subtitles are that you can turn it OFF/ON any time you want and you can see it on any apple device without any problem what so ever. 

Some people complaint about this application, arguing they add a semi-transparent background to the subtitles, on my opinion this background won't bother you at all, it is really nothing, the videos will looks as perfect as it is not there. another plus is that you can add as many subtitles as you want. spanish, french, Italian and have them in a menu to choose from later on. If your movie is on a format that suits your needs there's no reason to re-encode it, just add the subtitles and you are good to go. If on the other hand, your movie is not suited for your device you can batch re-encode it straight from within the application. You can also tag your file with metadata that you can't find on iTunes, like the HD symbol, the directors, rating, etc... 

The way it works is that you search for the subtitles using the webpages the apps recommend without even leaving the application, just look for the subtitle you want on the web and press download, as simple as that, or if you already have it on your computer you can add it too.

Good Job !!!

I love this program and now with my new Macbook Pro Core i7 2,66 GHz, SSD de 256GB and 8GB RAM DDR3 the convertion was pretty fast.

On my other macbook with core 2Duo, 4GBRam, the epise series like House MD, or 24 Hours take about 33 to 28 minutes to convert I think, I am not sure about those times.

But I am pretty sure about the new one and the convertion in 45 minutes video long take about 9 minutes to converto do iPhone4 or iPad, 1 hour long video, converts in 13 minutes. It is pretty fast.

The only Cons that I have and I am not sure if this is a software feature or limitation by Apple, but the subtitle on iPad is to SMALL, like the same size of iPhone without scailing to iPad resolution screen.

I think the convertion time is really short because the software use GPU and 64Bits informtion to go like in a "High Way Drive".

Worth the price.

The best application to add soft subtitles to M4V files.

As easy as open the video file, drag and drop the subtitle file on it, select the language as a reference and save the file. Done.

If the subs doesn't match because they are from other video source, then it's a little bit more tedious, but still easy. You have to adjust them with the controls, save the movie (.mov) and then rename it again to m4v. Works like a charm. I love it.

Now only need an application to extract subtitles from the DVDs and I would be even happier. Unfortunately, I think there is only D-Subtitle, that doesn't work for my spanish subs.

I have to say ive been looking for a program to add subtitles to my films for a long time, although I have found many. Most have been complicated to use and need a lot of fiddling around with settings etc. I can say without doubt that isubtitle is a great tool, after using this for a while now, its easy and straightforward to use allows you to add metadata and artwork. With an easy interface to export your file to appletv, ipod etc. I can highly recommend this program if your looking to add subtitles to your film collection.

A very easy and good software, which worked perfectly on my MacBook Pro!!!

I have a doubt on how to resolve a matter that was to subtitle a movie which was downloaded in 3 parts, and their "customer service" dept. worked fast and very helpful to give me the answers and steps to follow.

To make the movies & added subtitles work in iTunes and appleTV, after they are saved in "iSubtitle" I convert them to a ".dv" extension with Toast software.

Where the source code? You used part of Subler code, and that's gpl. My objective-C MP42 mp4v2 wrapper is under gpl. And your app is full of string from that, stripping out the debug symbol doesn't help.

You can download the source for the iSubtitleHelperApp (that's where the MP4v2 wrapper is used) from this page. http://www.bitfield.se/freestuff/index.html.

But you are using that inside the iSubtitle binary too. If the gpl code is statically linked you need to open source every line of the other code that is linked to. Or remove them and write your own.

As I said, the source using gpl'ed code is available for download from the page specified above. All according to the license. There is no intention whatsoever to violate that. If you want to discuss this further you can contact me by mail via jogga at bitfield dot se.

I basically use my Mac Mini as a media center through iTunes/Frontrow plugged into my TV. I tried to export a movie with the test version. Result is a black screen in Frontrow with only the sound, while the video works great with subtitles in iTunes or QT.

I'd love to buy that app as I think it's a great and simple way to add .srt to your content especially if going through the iTunes integration. When the Frontrow issue will be addressed?

The thing I don't understand though is why a .srt will automatically be recognized in QT or Frontrow with a simple .avi file while it isn't with a .m4v and have to go through this software?

Also why that black bezel on top of the screen to show the subtitles? It is a bit annoying. Again with a simple .avi the subtitles just appear normally without bezel. Is there any option to have it disappear?

Why don't you take a minute or two before writing a review? All the answers to your post is already answered here? Front Row black screen is a bug reported to Apple more than one year ago. Nothing I can do about that as a third party developer until Apple makes a bugfix. General questions like, "Why don't iTunes do this automagically", is not really what I call a proper review! Maybe you should send those feature requests to Apple instead ;-)
