It can also display useful information about the dv stream, like video norm (PAL/NTSC), aspect ratio normal (4:3) or wide (16:9), interlaced or progressive material, number of audio channels, audio sampling frequency, number of audio samples, timestamp and recording date & time.
Be sure the input file or stream is in pure RAW DV format. dv2sub doesn't work with DV AVI files (type 1 or type 2)
Go to the files section of the sourceforge Project page
dv2sub --subtitles-out file.sub file.dv
dv2sub --pass-through --subtitles-out file.sub file.dv | mencoder - ...
You need to put, in the subdirectory where you executed kino, a dv2sub_spumux.xml file (example included), to configure the way spumux render subtitles. Put the subtitle file in the same directory, and name it dv2sub.txt (or edit dv2sub_spumux.xml).
And you need also a truetype font in the $HOME/.spumux dir. I use arial.ttf from my windows/fonts directory (It is one of the very few things I use from windows :)
To install the scripts, just copy them to the scripts/exports directory of your kino installation. (mine is /usr/local/share/kino/scripts/exports/)
You need to have dv2sub, ffmpeg and dvdauthor installed in order to be able to use all the options. If you don't have the programs installed, you will not even see the scripts in kino.
