Convert the Video with Subtitle


  1. VSFilter - to render subtitles onto video
  2. Sothink iPod Video Converter - to convert video with subtitle files for iPod

If you want to play videos on your iPod, you need to convert the video to the format that iPod can recognize (iPod compatible MP4 format). Currently, quite a number of softwares can help you make the conversion with ease. However, if you want to play video on iPod with subtitle, you will need a software to convert the external subtitle file and embed it into video stream, because iPod does not have the subtitle filter to display external subtitle. Few softwares can convert a video with its subtitles for iPod. I use Sothink iPod Video Converter, as I found it is very easy to use, and it supports a lot different video and subtitle formats.

Make the conversion

  • Step 1 Load the video file

    Make sure that both the video file and its subtitle file use the same file name, and are in the same folder. Launch Sothink iPod Video Converter and click "Add" to load the video file.

  • Step2 Setup the conversion and start converting

    You can customize the audio and video setting for conversion on this panel. And I just simply select one pre-defined profiles "High quality video ". Then click "Next" to start conversion.

View and upload the created video onto iPod

During the conversion, you can check the option to let the program automatically upload the created video onto iPod for you. But I’d like to view and check the video before uploading. Use QuickTime Player to play the created video. You can see that the subtitles are successfully embedded in the video.

Finally, just connect your iPod to PC and upload the created video file, watch the video with your self made subtitles. and …Enjoy!
