Is there an easier way to convert vobsub filees to srt


hello,

I was using a program called avidemux and in the Tools menu there is a tool to convert a vobsub file to a srt file. Unfortunately, it requires me to type the characters in the graph. It was tiring and tedious and I didn't bother finishing it.

Is there an easier way to this conversion without interaction from me?

Thanks

- the final target result
?

Try handbrake which has both command line or a simple GUI to convert anything (virtually) to mp4.

It can also insert .srt sub-titles for you.

Just tried it.


HandBrakeCLI with the -s# switch adds a soft subtitles which I can toggle on and off. No need to extract the subtitles first. Handbrake does it transparently for you. This is much better.

Thanks
