the Orange Slice permits to edit « scripts » files that contains informations about when and what to print on a video : the subtitles. You can use those scripts with MPlayer ( or Xine ( for example. If you're using a WIN32 system, you can use the generated script to encode your videos with Virtual-Dub (

The main goal is to have an easy application to create and edit scripts for subtitling videos. Right now it only manages the Sub Station Alpha (SSA) and Advanced Sub Station Alpha (ASS) file formats. It can also load SUB (MicroDVD?) files. But it should be extended to any common format available in load/save (SUB & SRT at least).

The possibility to synchronise subtitles with video (or sound), isn't on the TODO list. If you feel like being able to develop such a thing, please tell me and « just do it » ! But right now, i'm only thinking in terms of subtitle editing, not subtitle timing.

A big update in the CVS while now Orange Slice uses the GtkTreeView model, and no longer the old deprecated CList. The only thing that's lacking are the rows background colors. Comments no longer have a nice grey background to distinguish them easily from the subtitles... i'm looking in the doc to get this corrected, i'm expecting to be able to take full advantage of Pango, and so being able in the futur oto even ave italic comments... why not ? ;) released

A lot of bugfixes, and some little enhancements in the way to use the Orange Slice. Play around, you will find those. [ eg: you can change names & styles in the combo box, and if it doesn't exists yet it hads it to the combo ]. I still have my problem with exporting to shift-jis, i think it's related to the cjkcodecs module, i might have a [...]
