I couldn't use it. It crashed all the time I tried to open it.

Review by Earthman on Mar 20, 2011 Version: 0.71 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 1/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value for money: 1/10 Overall: 1/10

Tried opening an SSA file with UTF-8 text, but the program won't take, giving me an error. Tried many other subtitling programs before this and they all open without a problem.

Review by Windows 7 user on Jul 26, 2010 Version: 0.71 OS: Windows 7 Ease of use: 5/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value for money: 5/10 Overall: 1/10

Have been using Submagic since 2005 as my main subtitle tool and never had a problem (ie crashing like previous comment). I find it versatile with many functions from sync issues to editing and fixing many other problems. It is and will remain one of those essential pieces of software in my video tools.

Can't get it to work at all. It crashes all the time after about 10 seconds of running.
