Very useful with NTSC DVD's and iTunes clips.

Most of PAL DVD's haven't include English SDH so USA sources have been great for me.

Text output configs are good but I have to use SubtitleEdit to "remove text for hearing impaired"

Jun 11, 2016 Version: 0.80 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

Cannot read HD DVB subtitles at least not on French Satellite TV

Aug 3, 2015 Version: Gui077 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 7/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 1/10

0.69 doesn't work correctly.
I've downgraded to 0.65 which works fine.
Great tool, BTW. :)

Apr 16, 2014 Version: 0.69 OS: Windows 8 64-bit Ease: 8/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

Works great for transport streams. Tried it with an unprotected iTunes video but was unable to get closed captions to extract, though they display fine in Quicktime player.

Jun 15, 2012 Version: 0.62 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease: 9/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 9/10

I searched for hours and tried many softwares : it's the only tool that allowed me to extract the cc (eia-608) from a .ts file. The creator is very reactive.
