How to add subtitles to DVD

Tools you gonna need:
ConvertXtoDVD( try it and then buy it - don't know how to download it?)
External subtitle(.srt, .ssa, .ass, .idx format)
So... you downloaded yourself a movie with subtitles and instead of watching it on computer you decided to lay down in your bed and watch it on TV. But what you didn't know is that your $50 DVD player doesn't play divx, xvid, avi...

After turning on your computer you searched for some kind info on how too watch it on TV,but only what you have found is bunch of out dated and complicated tutorials.

I'll show you the easiest way how to add movie and subtitles and burn it on DVD so you can play it on your DVD player.

Only thing you will need is:
VSO ConvertXtoDVD - software that converts and burns huge range of formats(AVI, WMV, MKV, YouTube, OMG, MPEG and Quicktime) to DVD.
After installing software you'll get screen like this:

First step is to configure it:
Go to Settings > General
Under working folder choose location with lots of free space
Choose your language under language tab
Under burning tab choose whether you like to keep converted videos
To disable or enable video preview:
Window > video preview
Then we gonna add our movie:
Press little sign on the right side and choose location of your movie
If everything works fine you'll get screen like this:

Press + sign where it say something like:
Titleset 1 - ~ 186min ...

Adding and burning subtitles:

Right click on
Subtitle(0 stream) > Add subtitle - find location of subtitle (supports only: .srt, .ssa, .ass, .idx - if u got wrong format read this )
Press on convert, insert blank DVD and go with your friends on beer
(converting and burning will take approx 1-2 hours - it depends how
fast is your hard drive and DVD recorder).
