Notes :
Apple restricts the opening of .vob files.
A 3rd party ripping software is needed to RIP the DVD/Blu-ray to create a .mkv/.m4v/.mp4 (along with subtitles) and then only this app can be used to extract the .srt files.
Usually the DVD/Blu-ray contain the subtitles information as images and not as text - So OCR (Optical character recognition) Technology is needed.

It worked perfectly for me


Just purchased/downloaded this app last night. My files types are mkv and the software worked flawlessly to extract the subtitle files and leave them as srt files in separate folders. I suggest having each mkv file in a separate folder and then opening this application, clicking the green add button, searching for the mkv video file in the folder you created, adding to the software engine, and processing the extraction. You will then find the extracted srt file in an auto-generated folder within the original mkv folder you created.

I have not tried this software with other video types, just with mkv.

It works!

People seem to be giving this guy a hard time. He’s pretty clear about the types of video files and the types of subtitles he can extract from those video files. So I put it to the test and it worked perfectly! MKV and M4V worked perfectly. Worked on SUP, PGS, and SRT. The ones who gave specs about what didn’t work listed weird types of subtitles and video files. Others seem to want the program to extract subtitles from their raw video data. It worked. Stick to the subtitle types listed above, stick to the video types listed above, and you should be fine. Five stars. Nice job!

Fantastic converter!

This does a pretty good job of using OCR to convert SUP subtitles. Not perfect, but none of them are and it’s definitely better than the only other Mac-native alternative that I’ve used in some ways. I do wish it would show the results against the original subtitles to make it easier to fix errors, but I get by. I’d also very much prefer to load subtitle files by right-clicking, or at least dragging-dropping the file into the app’s window.
