Default Subtitles on the Spinn

Hello,
Has anyone used subtitles on this device.
In the options menu is a tick for subs on/off.
I mainly use .srt for subtitles.
The .srt has the same name as the .avi as usual.
But I do not see subs on screen.
The iriver site has no info on this topic.
Maybe a converter is needed for the subs?

Regards,
Obby

Your subtitles need to be in the Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language

Thank you JDM2k9,

I looked up the Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language.
It is also known as SAMI.
The extension of this is .smi

I found two converters (freeware) called 'srt2smi'
One is for use with a command prompt and gives subtitles in 8pt without faults.
The other one is a small window application resulting in 12pt subs, but with a tag fault.
The tag '&nbsp' has to be ' '

One can change this by opening the resulting .smi file in notepad, do a search and replace an save the result.
The result is tested on my SPINN, it works fine.

It would be nice if there was a application that scans the SPINN's drive for .srt and replaces them with .smi.
It would be possible to build this by extending the command version with a window frontend and added code.
At the moment I am lacking time to do this.

I hope that this information will be usefull to SPINN users on this forum.

Regards,
Obby

Smile Notice regarding a upcoming subtile utility

I've found some time to write the frontend for converting .srt into .smi
Just needs some testing.
You just have to start the application and point it to the Spins video folder.
All .srt files in this folder will be converted into .smi files in one go.

I will post this soon on this thread, KEEP LOOKING !

Regards, Obby
