Description

I can extract Closed Captions from this NTSC DVD sample Starship_Troopers.vob with this:

"ffmpeg" -f lavfi -i "movie=Starship_Troopers.vob[out0+subcc]" -map s "output_map-s.srt"

output:

but, srt has font tags, and some strange position tags:

9

These tags are not allowed by TXT2VobSub because subtitles are too long, and if I harsub them with this:

"ffmpeg" -i "Starship_Troopers.vob" -vf "subtitles=output_map-s.srt:force_style='FontName=Microsoft Sans Serif,Fontsize=18,Outline=1,PrimaryColour=&HFFFFFF'" -f avi -c:v libxvid -b:v 1500k -vtag XVID -c:a libmp3lame -b:a 128k "Starship_Troopers-ffmpeg.avi"

Those font tags overwrite FontName? from subtitles filter, and position tags puts subs above and aligned like this:

CCextrator removes those tags, and looks like this:

http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f169/edumj/Starship_Troopers-ccextractor.png

Is there an option to remove those tags, like "-txt_format text" does with other embed text subs? That way, we could also do soft subs (XSUBs) and not only hard subs from CC.

comment:1 Changed 15 months ago by cehoyos

  • Component changed from undetermined to avcodec
  • Keywords cc added
  • Priority changed from normal to minor
  • Reproduced by developer set
  • Status changed from new to open
  • Type changed from enhancement to defect
  • Version changed from unspecified to git-master

I suspect there is a bug but I am unable to analyze it further: What is \h and why is it put there by capture_screen()?

comment:2 Changed 15 months ago by cehoyos

  • Reproduced by developer unset

Otoh, the output looks very similar to what vlc produces, so the tabs may simply be correct.

comment:3 Changed 15 months ago by edumj

Sorry, what is "Otoh"?

Well, VLC shows original CC like this:

http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f169/edumj/Starship_Troopers.vob.png

So, it also ignores those tags.

It would be useful to could ignore them if you don't like default style, or if it's problematic because of long lines (Txt2Vobsub rejects them, and SubtitleWorkshop? freezes!).
