@Dvid: What error msg do you get?
Have you installed the dot net 4.8 runtime ?
I'm running Windows 10 19043.19043 - and SE works fine :)

by Dvid at 21-04-12 11:19
Now OK.

now for version 3.7 we need hardsubbed OCRing

When running SE 3.6.4 Next, beta 35 ignores my setting to [Bold = disabled] for a text field.
By opening and closing the settings for a program, the program will respect my settings until the end of the current session.

@Janusz: Is latest beta better?

by Janusz at 21-08-12 23:46
Thank you, it works.

by at 21-08-12 23:50
@Janusz: thx for verifying :)

by Martin at 21-12-12 20:13
@Nikse I sent new subtitle to you with mail. Please add support for it if possible. Thanks!

by techguru at 21-13-12 01:48
under batching options
can we have an option of shifting times of subs by either time or frames...
either plus or negative

by at 21-16-12 08:24
Subtitle Edit works well with tag, but can you add mod (vsfiltermod) for advanced typeset please? Please add the mini icon of Bold, Italic & Underline in the toolbar, because at the moment I have to right click to do that

by at 21-16-12 09:29
Use "mpv" as video player to get a precise on video preview.
Use shortcuts for italic/bold/underline.

by at 21-16-12 09:29
@Martin: Looking into it... not super easy...

by techguru at 21-17-12 04:00
would be nice if you added xy-VSFilter + XySubFilter like ghost was mentioning

by at 21-17-12 08:19
@techguru: try using "mpv" as video player.

by Majid at 21-21-12 02:49
I've sent you a couple of emails recently and reported some issues. Waiting for your reply. Thx

by Cristian at 21-25-12 23:20
Do any SE version have Batch "ADJUST DURATION" function?
If not, that would be to a great help if this function will be added in future versions.
Auto-generated captions from youtube are all overlapping...
They can easily be fixed by Adjusting the Duration +1 second or less.
SE is a nice great thing.
Thanks for all your efforts

by at 21-26-12 16:23
@Cristian: "Adjust duration" is available in both "Tools - Batch convert" and in cmd line convert.

Hi, Nikse

I updated Polish language file to version 3.5.4 beta 151

Happy New Year :-D

@admas: thx for the update :)

Happy New Year :)

Dear Nikse,
Happy new year. Thank you very much for this great software.
I’d like to report a bug in “Batch Convert”.
If you sort file list by “Format” or “Status” (by click on column header) and then try to add other file(s) to the list, you’ll get “Windows Forms Thread Exception” error and you must choose Abort button. This doesn’t happen for SRT file. It only happens for MKV files (I didn’t test by mp4/ts/m2ts files).
I’m using SubtiteEdit 3.6.4 on Windows 10 64bit.
Thank you very much

by at 22-03-01 12:53
@Siamak: thx for the info :)
Should now be fixed in latest beta.

by Siamak at 22-03-01 17:19
Dear Nikse,
Thank you very much for this super quick answer.
Yes. It's soved.

Hi, the style from ass file will not show after I close and re-open it again. There are two ways to fix this, but I hope you will fix this problem so I won't use those methods:
1. Change to any format and back to ass file again
2. Change style for 1 or more lines to any style, and it will show the style again.

I want to update the Vietnamese language from my translation file (.xml)

I re-translated the Vietnamese language from English version, because the man/woman translated it a long time ago made many mistakes (period (.) sub to thời gian (time), and there are a lot of things he/she didn't translate.

by at 22-08-01 08:42
@Minh Toan Ma: Thx for the translation - the old translation was really... old!

I cannot re-create the issue with disappearing style in assa... could you provide steps/screenshots to help me re-creating this issue?

by Minh Toan Ma at 22-08-01 09:05
Here is the video, I hope you get what I mean (つ≧▽≦)つ

by at 22-08-01 23:05
@Minh Toan Ma: Thx, I've hope is fixed now in latest beta.

by Minh Toan Ma at 22-09-01 04:21
The beta version fixed the style problem correctly 👍👍👍

by Minh Toan Ma at 22-09-01 04:35
Another problem: the subtitle auto disappear (on the video) when playing a line.

by Gou 93 at 22-09-01 10:17
@Minh Toan Ma, I have the same issue when playing video like you, the video describes the error I want to ask

by at 22-09-01 11:46
@Minh Toan Ma/Gou 93: This is handled in mpv... I don't know how to fix this.

by Minh Toan Ma at 22-09-01 12:44
Well, I have a temporary solution for this error, but I thought you could fix it, so I didn't show it here. I used this solution from August 2021. I don't know how to explain my idea clearly in words. Therefore, I will make a video on January 10th, 2022. I hope you can rewrite my idea briefly.
My Youtube channel is: MMT Gouenji - TECH, and my facebook is:

This is how I fix "the subtitle auto disappear (on the video) after playing a line in MPV", I hope you can make it simpler from my 10 minutes video 😅😅

by Minh Toan Ma at 22-10-01 10:56
Please make bookmark - add comment available in 2 mode: LIST VIEW AND TEXT BOX. When I type in the text box, I can bookmark with CTRL D in List view and text box, but I cannot CTRL E (bookmark - add comment) in text box, I have to left click in list view and CTRL E

by Minh Toan Ma at 22-10-01 11:04
Please make audio language selectable after save, close program, and open it again.

The first time I open the video, it prompted the audio language to choose, the first option is English, the second is Japanese. I chose the Japanese IN OPTION TWO. After I SAVE THE FILE, EXIT, AND OPEN AGAIN, The audio auto play the FIRST LANGUAGE (English). I tried to delete file in folder waveforms and open again, it prompted the language to choose, but when I close and open, the program keep using the first language.

by MMT Tech at 22-13-01 11:33
@Minh Toan Ma, the solution for error "Another problem: the subtitle auto disappear (on the video) when playing a line" IS VERY SIMPLE.
You can use "open second subtitle" in menu: video -> open second subtitle".
1. duplicate your subtitle, then rename the copy to draft file or any name you prefer
2. In DRAFT FILE, lengthen all lines with "adjust duration"
- Select all lines, right click-selected lines->fixed->, then BRIDGE GAPS with minimum gap is 0 ms. Then you can insert the draft file to "open second subtitle".
And now you can both translate and listen to the video without lost sight of the subtitle

by MMT Tech at 22-13-01 11:35
P/s: I fortgot the information:
3. Now open your previous subtitle, open video->open second subtitle, select draft file

by at 22-13-01 12:17
For the "subtitle disappear" issue, you can also disable "mpv handles preview text". I was unable to fix it via mpv, sorry.

The bookmark shortcut should now also work in text box in latest beta.

About audio track... that should be possible to change in the "Video" menu.

by Toan Minh Ma at 22-13-01 16:59
How can I change the audio embeded in mkv file?
Here is the menu in video menu:

Open video file...
Open video from url...
Close video file
Open second subtitle file...
Set video offset...
SMPTE timing (non integer frame rate)
Import chapters from video
Generate/import scene changes...
Remove/export scene changes...
Batch generate waveforms...
Generate blank video...
Generate video with burned-in sub...
Show/ hid e waveform Ctr|+W
Show/hide video Ctrl+Q
Un-dock video controls

by at 22-13-01 17:24
A menu item called "Choose audio track" should exist in the video menu, if the current video has more than one audio track... (between Open video from url... and Close video)

by Toan Minh Ma at 22-14-01 02:32
Thank you, I see it now, appreciated!

by Siamak at 22-14-01 13:12
Hi Dear Nikse,
I’m using latest beta version (3.6.4-335). In this version when you want to change subtitle color, it shows “Choose color” window with a circular color pattern to choose from (and RGB or type color code).
The more important problem is when you use change color again, the program won’t remember the previously selected color. i.e. you must type/choose color every time using color command.
While in previous versions and current 3.6.4, color command shows a different window with various colors to choose and remembered previously selected color.
I’m using Windows 10, 64bit.
Thank you very much.

by at 22-15-01 00:23
@Siamak: Yes, thx - should now remember last color in latest beta.

by TECH at 22-15-01 06:56
is there anyway to sync subs on a video that isn't constant without manually doing it?

by Siamak at 22-15-01 12:24
Hi Dear Nikse,
Thank you very much for latest beta regarding remembering last subtitle color.
I think previous color window was more efficient because it offered various colors to choose and also you could define custom colors if you want. But in this new circular color pattern window you must define color at first.
Thank you very muc.

I can't translate the content in CTRL + F8 (List Errors) to Vietnamese in xml file.
P/s: I will update the Vietnamese language file (vi_VN.xml) later. If my ideas will be listed in the changelog, please use the name "MMT Gouenji Tech" instead of "Minh Toan Ma".
Best regards,

@Siamak: I much prefer the new dialog - can copy-paste codes to/from other programs, much easier to choose new colors, supports alpha (needed for ASSA), shows existing color... and now shows last four colors in latest beta. Is that better for you?

by 37 minutes ago
@TECH: about sync, I could not really tell much as I did not understand the texts... but if "Visual Sync" does not work, then "Set start and offset the rest" in the waveform will work, but that may take some time.

by 30 minutes ago
@MMT Gouenji Tech: Updated the change log.
