When I was looking for alternatives for our captioning assignment, by chance I found Aegisub after a long unsuccessful search for open-source MacOSX-compatible editors. It is MacOSX compatible. And it is open-source. But for a simple school project the interface looked far too complicated; it’s, however, probably going to be really useful if I learnt how to use it and a real project comes my way.
SubtitleEdit, Jubler, MPC-HC
A few days ago I was checking my site statistics and noticed an interesting backlink, which linked to this post which recommended a few subtitle editors that I didn’t know about:
- SubtitleEdit—open-source, but Windows only
- SubtitleEdit Online—cloud-based version of the above (alternative to Amara)
- Jubler—open-source, multiplatform (Java-based)
- MPC-HC—open-source, but Windows only
Since I don’t have Windows, the only one I can check out is Jubler. I’ll do that some time.
So there seems to be really quite a lot of options other than just CapScribe and Amara. Maybe some time I’ll try them all and report back what I find.
