SubViewer is a file format for storing subtitles. A friend of the SubViewer creator developed SubRip to extract subtitles from DVDs, so the formats are similar. Like SubRip, blank lines separate frames. It may have the file extension
A sample SubViewer document may look like;
[INFORMATION] <-- beginning of optional info section, closing tag required [TITLE] Title of film. [AUTHOR] Author of film. [SOURCE] Arbitrary text [FILEPATH] Arbitrary text [DELAY] (time in frames to delay all subtitles [COMMENT] Arbitrary text [END INFORMATION] [SUBTITLE] <-- beginning of subtitle section, no closing tag required. [COLF]&HFFFFFF,[SIZE]12,[FONT]Times New Roman 00:01:00.10,00:02:00.20 Oh, no. The eggs are hatching! 00:02:00.30,00:03:00.40 No, never mind, I was hallucinating.
In SubViewer 2.0 format, the whole subtitle is written on one line, with line breaks indicated by
[br], as follows:
00:01:00.10,00:02:00.20 Oh, no.[br]The eggs are hatching!
