RoadMovie: batch encode movies with subtitles

Cory Bohon

If you've been looking for a way to get subtitled movies onto your iPod, Apple TV, or web server, then RoadMovie may be for you. RoadMovie has subtitle support from SubRip (.srt), SubViewer 1 & 2 (.sub), and MicroDVD. It has built-in presets for Apple TV, Cellphone, iPhone, iPod, PSP and Web. You can also use Elgato's Turbo.264 hardware for encoding at higher speeds. Some of the main features in RoadMovie include:
  • Batch encode a list of movies
  • Use presets to encode or create your own
  • Batch upload to FTP, SFTP, .Mac, WebDav or Amazon S3
  • Add to iTunes after encode
To get subtitle files, you will need an application like Submerge (from the same company). has a guide for getting subtitles in sync with your movies. With RoadMovie's beautiful looks and strong feature list, this could be the bridge for no subtitles in iTunes. RoadMovie is available from Bitfield's website and costs $19.95 (US); a demo is also available.
