I've recently downloaded ffdshow to allow me to play .sub subtitles in my divx player, or, failing that, convert them to .srt files (which I don't see how to do). Unfortunately I can find no explanantion as to how to use ffdshow anywhere and it doesn't do it automatically. All I seem to have are three configuration programmes. I also have Vobsub. I'm neither a moron nor the next great software developer but this really shouldn't be as difficult as i'm finding it :-) can someone please help?
Documentation for ffdshow is really needed.
First you'd have to enable Codecs->Raw video.
Next check "Subtitles" from left tab and go to its page. Configure the "File".
ffdshow is not a converter. You cannot convert .sub to .srt using ffdshow.
