Subtitles duration
« on: March 06, 2010, 09:06:24 PM »

Hi

I have a video 37 seconds long. It's lip-synched so the audio has to be in the video. This means I can't have a separate audio file, but I still need subtitles. But the subtitles always overrun, by roughly the same amount, no matter what value I set the duration parameter to be.

Here's the code:
Code: [Select]
this.PlayTheora("interface\PDA\Oggs\Tony1.ogg");
this.Talk(Game.ExpandString("/Tony01_1/","",5000));
this.Talk(Game.ExpandString("/Tony01_2/","",1000));
this.Talk(Game.ExpandString("/Tony01_3/","",1000));
this.Talk(Game.ExpandString("/Tony01_4/","",1000));
You can see the total is only 8 seconds - but even the third part is still on the screen when the 37-second video is over, with the fourth part appearing several seconds later.

Can anybody please advise how I get the timings right?

Thanks

WME supports the subtitle format SUB when playing videos.

Thanks Odnorf. So is the Talk method not of practical use with videos? Are the timing errors something I've done wrong or something to do with WME?
