Voody Blue Subtitler

Voody Blue Subtitler is a suit of programs that allows you to manually synchronize a text file with a video stream, thus creating a subtitles file. It consists of a master client (to do the sync), a slave client (projector), a relay server, and a configuration utility. It runs on Linux and Windows (all except the relay server), supports video output via GStreamer (Linux and Windows) and MPlayer (on Linux only), and supports GTK+ 2 and 3 (decided at compile time).

        Release Notes: This release can not only manually synchronize a text file with a video stream to create a subtitles file, but also can play back a subtitle file or relay it through a small server to multiple clients. VBS now consists of several pieces: vbsm (the "master" client to do the timing of subtitles, with or without video playback), vbss (the "slave" client, which can play back a subtitle file or can receive subtitles from a server and show them in realtime), vbsd (the server which relay the subtitles), and vbsc (a configuration utility).
