Gnome Subtitles

Gnome Subtitles is a subtitle editor for the GNOME desktop. It supports the most common text-based subtitle formats and allows for subtitle editing, translation and synchronization.

Gnome Subtitles 1.1 has been released yesterday and as usual, we've uploaded the new version to the main WebUpd8 PPA.

New features in Gnome Subtitles 1.1:
  • New feature for quickly setting times with a single button: pressing sets the start time, releasing sets the end time, then moves to the next subtitle
  • Periodically backup subtitle files, configurable in the preferences
  • New features for video seeking and subtitle selection:
    1. Video->Loop Selection - loop the video playback to the selected subtitles
      Video->Seek to Selection - seek the video to the selected subtitle
      Video->Select Nearest Subtitle - select the subtitle for the video position
      Video->Auto Select Subtitle - auto select subtitles as the video is playing

To install Gnome Subtitles 1.1 in Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx and 10.10 Maverick Meerkat, use the following commands (will also add the WebUpd8 main PPA):
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
sudo apt-get update
