Think I understand what you're looking for (but I'm only a thick Morton fan.....) WinAVI does a batch convert that might fit the bill.

I'm on V7.6, when I open it the 2nd icon from the left does 'batch media file convert!', tell it which ones, where to & off it goes. Did 3 before for me, not sure if there's a limit, gotta be worth a play.
All the best in Europe,
HH.

Never used WinAVI for it but if you're converting to DVD hit the advanced button near the bottom of the screen & point it towards your sub file, I guess?
Good Luck,
HH.

& thanks for the rep, appreciate it.

set the file to be converted to dvd, hit the advanced button should see 3 tabs, choose encode & you should see this screen. IF (I'm guessing here I've never tried it & don't have a movie with subs handy) the subs file is in the same folder & is correctly named I expect you should be able to pick it using 'source subtitle stream'. Hope so anyway, apologies if no good.

I read somewhere recently (but can't find it again:blushing::blushing:) somebody reckoned a 90min avi converted to dvd using an all-singing & dancing system in 16mins......Thought that was kinda quick but if you're already 36mins I guess it's believable.

36 mins was for converting a HD film to normal dvd lol and the quality is still as good i couldn't believe it

it normally takes me 13 mins to convert a 750mb flm to DVD which is good enough for me, but i'm trying to justify a quad core and water cooling lol

just a little tip when u want to convert more than 1 AVI using WINAVI instead of using BATCH all i do is press Cltrl and highlight 1 2 or 3 films and then just add them as normal it will do same as opening batch and adding them does same job
