Tweaking Win7 SP1 to help Nero8 ?


P

Peter Jason

Nero8 has a "Video Recode" program that converts
video files into DVD format.

It can insert *.srt subtitles into the movie too.

But although the subtitles part of this "Video
Recode" works OK and the options exist to have one
of four colored subtitles these always come out
black, and this is no good for dark movies.

Why can't the other colors be selected? Can Win7
be tweaked to stop this?

That doesn't sound like a Win 7 issue to me...

No. Windows 7 doesn't provide that ability.
Upgrading Nero to a later version is the only option (though later versions may not provide all the features of earlier versions).

Fyi. Nero 8 and 9 Recode didn't work well with Vista (Windows 7 predecessor)

Nero's official position
"Nero supports Windows® 7 as of version 9.4.26.0"

The latest available version is Nero 12 (upgrade to Nero Platinum for ~$40US, $30US Nero)

Yes I paid 50$ for Nero12 and all I got for it was
the ability to burn BluRay sometime in the future.
No improvement to Nero Recode at all. Nero12
improvements seem involved with all the new
gadgets just as phones and pads etc. I actually
got a response from Nero last weekend stating (ex
cathedra) that subtitles are not available in
Nero12!

My advice is to keep all your previous old
versions of Nero just in case.

I'm going to check out Roxio now. And I'm trying
to figure out the "ffdshow" universal encoder for
video, though this will tax my synapses
considerably.

$50 down the drain!

Since you had a very specific usage requirement that you were
concerned about, I suppose you could have asked your question in
Nero's support forum prior to purchasing the new version and simply
hoping for the best.

So is trying to fix a bug in Nero by "Tweaking Win7 SP1"...
Sounds like a Bazooka Joe comic from the early 60's.

Joe is wandering around under a street light when his friend comes up
and asks what he's looking for.
"I lost a quarter", Joe says.
"Where'd you lose it?"
"Down the block a ways."
"Why are you looking here?"
"The light's better!"

Too late to save you any money, but you might look to see what free
programs are available.

I have no answers on that and I have to log out in a couple of minutes,
so I can't offer any Googling of my own.

Geez. That joke was popular when I was in the third grade. Hint: it was
*way* before the 60s.

But it still seems to be a good approach to searching.

Understood, but in my defense I was saying that's when *I* first saw
it, on a Bazooka Joe comic. I remember Bazooka Joe bubble gum being as
hard as a rock until you work it a bit, so maybe we had very old stock
in my little town, or maybe the Bazooka Joe folks didn't feel
compelled to write their own jokes, or ...? Either way, it seemed
appropriate to the situation, where the Op wanted to tweak something
in Win 7 because he didn't know how to make the tweak in his other
app. :)

True, and I've also noticed that when I'm searching for something,
it's always in the last place that I look!

That's true of everybody. Nobody continues searching after he finds
it. <g>

That may be true, but why is it never there the first time you look in
that place?

I wasn't sure if anyone would supply the punch line, so thanks for
playing along. :)

Nero is one of the software apps that I abandoned several years ago.
At the time, I had two CD burners on the same P/C (Win version prior to
XP) Each burner came with the same Nero major version, but OEM tailored
to the burner. Only one tailored version would work at a time.
Nero's support claimed that I needed to buy a "full version".
(It didn't work with either burner)

I've never run across a version of Nero that wouldn't work with just
about any burner regardless of fact the software came with a specific
burner. Mind you, that's almost always Nero Express.

Geez, my experience with Nero is that it almost always works. It even
handles burning 3 dvds at once on this pc, 2 Sata and a USB. I have had
the odd time I had to reinstall though.

I'm using Nero 7 Ultimate on Win 7 32 bit. Have no need for later as it
does all I ask of it as is now and it works.

Regarding sub-titles. The odd time I've wanted them on a movie was
always when I had a pc video file and subtitle file so I just used
VirtualDub to lay the text onto the video before using Nero Vision to
create the actual disk.

LOL

I thought those gum-wrapper cartoons had no text.

But here's a similar one (not BJ, though):

Cop (to drunk beating on a lamppost): That's no use, buddy. Nobody's home
there.

Drunk: Oh, yes there is! There's a light upstairs!

ISTR most had some minimal text.

I hadn't heard that one. :)

True :)

Also, I'm glad you gave me a chance to exercise my mean streak in a
safer way than making hand gestures in traffic :)
I remember Bazooka Joe bubble gum being as

in my little town,
Wow! Twenty year old bubble gum!

Yeah. In fact, I wish I didn't have that problem so often myself :)

I also agree with John Williamson's question, "why is it never there the
first time you look in that place?".

Amazing how often that happens.

Anyway, the subthread speaks for itself, so I'll be quiet now.
