SimpleSub 2.0 now uses ffmpeg v6.0 or greater  to encode subtitles.
Mencoder no longer supported.  (Download ffmpeg from OS4Depot.) 

This has allowed the addition of many new capabilities as followings:
- Change the Size, Color, Bold, Italics and Underline text within each title
- Global setting for font selection, title position, title style and title
- Support for the most popular video and audio codecs when encoding.
- Realtime preview with all settings applied.
- Start preview from anywhere within the title list.

SimpleSub is a program for creating and editing .srt format subtitle files.
It can also encode the subtitles onto the videos using mencoder. It supports
a 'Preview' mode that allows full control of MPlayer with it's on screen
display showing the current time for determining display time for subtitles.
The editor supports full keyboard control and auto time formatting for ease
of entry. SimpleSub also supports "Title Settings" such as font selection,
position, size, blur and outline. It comes with several freeware fonts to
get you started. "Video Settings" allows you to choose the output formant,
video/audio bitrates and codecs for encoding. In addition it supports a
"Test Mode" that limits encoding to the first 20 seconds so the titles settings
can be viewed and adjusted before comitting to fully encoding the whole video.

Note: Subview (.srt) format title files for most popular movies are available in
          languages at several websites including the following:
