Default How to add black outline to subtitles

I would like to add black outline to my subtitles so they stand out more and are easier to read but media subtitler doesn't have a way of doing what i want
I have seen other videos with embeded subs and the text has a black outline which is much easier to read
is there another program that will do the job

If they are text based subs, such as .srt subs, VobSub default processing should put a black border.

There are guides hard subbing using TextSub() which is one of the VobSub filters, out on the web, with screen shots. Probably also on this forum, if you search. The thing you have to watch out for usually, is if there's color correction in the script(AviSynth .avs script) and put the subtitle TextSub() call in the right spot. If you get like pink fluorescent subs, you put it in the wrong place.

Just search for AviSynth TextSub() and VobSub

You can do it with DivXLand media subtitler. First open the subtitle file, the go to Setting, Format Settings, select Substation alpha, then select the color of the font and the colour of the outline, press OK, then go to Save as, select SubstantionAlpha format for the file and save.

An app that can convert .srt to idx/sub with font size, border and placement attributes is AviAddXSubs. If your player can handle XSubs you can embed the subs. Otherwise just change the setting in the sub configuration tab from XSub to Idx/Sub to produce external idx/sub pair.

http://www.digital-digest.com/software/AVIAddXSubs.html

It's simple to use. My set top box shows .srt files with a very thin font even with all the settings at largest and max border. So I routinely put the .srt through AviAddXSubs to get external idx/sub. They display much better with the box.
