I commonly use videos with .srt subtitles. Recently, somebody gave me a dvd player wich only accepts closed caption subtitles, so I can't play those videos.

Is there a way to convert .srt subtitles to closed captions subtitles? Is there any software to do this task?

VobSub should be able to help.

MovieCaptioner can import SRT files and export SCC closed captions that are embedded into a QT movie. Requires QT Pro and the free ClosedCaptionImporter.compent plugin for QT from Apple.

There's a difference between regular ol' subtitles and Closed Captioning. Producing true closed captioning is extremely difficult.

The only software I've stumbled across that does closed captioning and doesn't cost a small fortune is QuickTime Pro.
