    How to burn .avi and .srt files in Toast?
    Hi, I have many foreign language films that have the .srt file subtitle. VLC plays them together fine on my computer but does anyone have any idea how to burn the .avi and .srt / .sub files together so that you get a a movie on dvd which has the subtitles in it? I am totally stuck. I have been searching for a program that can combine the files but cannot find anything. Any help much appreciated.

    Apparently Toast can do it with a little help from perian

    Thank You!
    Thank you so much for the info on Perian you are too kind. Love your profile picture of Zippy too - zippy rules!

    I have just downloaded perian and it is installed in preference panes but how on earth do you use it? I am dragging the folder containing the .avi and .srt onto toast but it is still rejecting the .srt file. Any tips?

    One extra tip - make sure your Toast Titanium is updated to version 8.0.3.

    I am also having this problem. I have the latest version of Perian and the .srt and .sub files are in the same folder and have the same name as the .avi.

    The subtitles show up on the movie when previewing it in toast (9.0.1), but aren't there when I burn it. Any ideas what might be the problem?

    it's a hassle to install (gotta grab 3 files separately for legal reasons) but FFMPEGX looks to do all this easily once it's installed.

    Still no answer to this question? So there is no way to burn avi+srt in the latest versions of Toast? Ffmpegx doesn't work in Snow Leopard, it keeps asking to install X11, something that I would prefer to avoid... I can't believe we are stuck with something so simple...

    I've got the same problem and have been trying to source this out for quite awhile now. Any further insight into this simple but annoying problem would be greatly appreciated!


    Thanks in advance!
