tSubGet is a teletext subtitle extractor, intended for use with DVR-MS and WTV files. Using DirectShow, the teletext stream is parsed and subtitles are written out in the SubRip (srt) format. Colour tags can also be written-out if requested.
tSubGet is intended for use with Australian tv recordings; while possible, it is not guaranteed to work for any other country. However, there is experimental support for other languages (Latin based languages and Greek*).
To work with Greek text, a modified version will need to be downloaded. Since I don't know Greek and don't have any Greek sample recordings, I don't know if it works or if it produces gibberish.
For versions below 0.9.5, there is an included utility called streamDump that can extract a particular stream (given a relevant GUID), and if requested, also provide the timestamp for each sample. See [Dumping a Stream] for more information.
If you are sure that your recording has teletext-style subtitles, it would be great if you can submit a sample for me to test tSubGet on, especially if it is a recording from a country that is not Australia.
|A COM error occurred||Ensure that NullGrabber.dll is in the same location as the executable. If it still doesn't work, message me!|
|The progress indicator does not move from 00:00:00||The video file likely has a teletext stream, but the stream is empty. The file may contain DVB subtitles, which is totally different (bitmap based), and cannot be processed by tSubGet.|
|'The input file cannot be processed'||There's likely no teletext stream. If you know there are subtitles, they are probably of a different format (eg DVB subtitles as above). tSubGet will not work with these other formats.|
|The file is processed but no srt file is generated||This may indicate that no subtitles were found. Ensure that you have set the teletext page to the correct setting for your TV channel/Country.|
|tSubGet is not working with WTV files||As tSubGet relies on DirectShow to work, you will need a computer running Windows Vista or greater to work with WTV files (Windows XP does not have a suitable source filter for WTV files)|
Below are some links to other software that also decode teletext-style subtitles, using differing methods.
