Hi Marty,

thank you for keep pinging us ) We just missed it at some point, but supporting of subtitles is important.
Keep an eye on updates, we should fix it somewhere in Jan.

Thanks !

Hi Marty,

Sorry you experience these issues. Do we talk about a bug or some missed feature?
We will re-check it with our team and let you know whats going on.

We're talking about a 3 years old reported bug using SRT subtitle when they are used with a H264 Mp4/Mkv video. i sent numerous files and report here or in private to the support about it. they could reproduce the issue and was "telling here when a fix would be done", but it has never been done.

On a lot of video files I use with your software, I have a Mp4 video file (H264) + an external SRT, or a MKV with external or internal SRT file.

what's happening ?

by importing "one video" only, and after put markers and launch the cut processing, at some points, the processing stop. it's freeze totally, only way to continue is to click on cancel.

only way to have the whole video cut is to open the stream selector (right click on the video screen preview) select stream, and uncheck the subtitle track. then I relaunch the processing and everything is working, but we loose the subtitle track, and must redo all the subtitles sync and do the cut with an external software.

when doing it in batch using several videos, it's worst. the subtitles are out of sync. So i don't do any batch process when using subtitles.

They are other bugs... like sometimes a video refuse to process after some marks (with or without subtitle), cancel do nothing, and only way is to force the close of the video. sometimes the software crash. when you cut a 1 hour or 2 hours video and you lost all the work, after a while it can be a "bit" boring.

I'm starting to do my cut again in a Pro video software (Vegas Pro 19) when i don't need subtitle , because after a while, it's very very boring. your software work well, fast, but ... loosing hours of work can be a lot of boring, especially when the "backup" save didn't work and we must redo everything.

Hello Marty,
After checking your files I think I found 2 different issues:
1) When you load a project with an external subtitles or restore from a backup copy of the project after a crash, the external subtitles stream is disabled for trimming.
2) When you load more then 1 file to the timeline and save the output file - only subtitles from the first file are saved.

I'll post here when the fix is available."

Hi Marty,
All are alive, we were just busy with other things.

ok, i understand, but hope the subtitles fix will appears at some points... 3 years is a long time for a fix lol... Your software work great, but this issue make it want to explode the screen and the computer each time it happens... work ok during few cuts, and then freeze, and only way to have to process the video is to remove the subitile, and we must then redo the whole sync :(. It forbidd to do any serious thing..


Sorry that you have such experience with work with our product.
As soon as there will be any fixes with editing files with srt subtitles, we will post them here.

the last time someone from Solveig told this was in January 2019... is the company dead ? the software dead ? Thanks for "any" answer.

I just checked both 32 and 64 bit versions and could not reproduce the problem you described. Could you please let me know what file you try to open when you see  the watermark

hi thanks to have tried , but this issue went away with the clean re install of windows. (clean install of windows 11).
Certainly a codec registered issue with the elecard one, maybe because of an another software, and which impacted my system on win10 backk then.
for now, issue has not been reproduced.

the 3 mains issues i still have now are (these are reported since a long time and since many years), some were already there in the 6th version. :

1/ the subtitle one (it's blocking the rendering of many videos (cut), Mp4 or Mkv, and to have these parts cut, i need to remove the subtitles from the layer window (right click on the picture). it's usually the end of the videos (the last or several last cuts on a video (sometimes it's doing it at the beginning o in the middle, but it's more rare). if i click on cancel, the last cut is saved but with zero subtitle.

(i don't use anymore the 32 bits version, the licence doesn't allow anymore the use of both software at the same time, but sometimes, the processing issue (the one blocked by the subtitle) was appearing differently depending of which version, so a project saved in a 64 bits version could work in a 32 one and vice versa, but most of the time it was not working.).

I have a lot of project saved and which can't be cut and wait a possible fix because of this. :(

2/ there is a sync issue with SRT while cutting several videos imported in batch. only way is to do it is processing one video at a time and not using the batch and redoing the sync  with a subtitle editor :(. the generated srt has a shift in the subtitles, and must be resync. someone told that the first subtitle of the srt were cut, and everything was shifted, but it's an old message here.

3/ if we put a marker on the jonction between 2 videos in a batch import, the software can freeze and need to be closed by force (task manager) and reloaded. I thought at first by the comment of the support here, that it was an issue related to my hardware jog (Shuttle express from counter design) but the same issue happened recently bu using my keyboard to put the markers.

I'll try to reproduce this issue. Does it mean that it is only specific to the MP4 videos?

certainly it happens with Mkv too. it's very annoying. there are still lot of bugs very annoying not fixed, and it was reported in 2019.
i'm on the 64 bits version actually and it's... :( ..

- external subtitles most of the time block at some point the cut. sometimes at the first cut, sometimes in the end like after 6 cut, the 6th one block and don't finish. only way is to hit cancel, right click on the screen, and unselect (with the cizzor) the subtitle track. and then the file can be cut normally, without the subttiles. when it's happening on the frst cut, it's very annoying. when you spend one hour to work on a 1 hour movie and do a lot of cut, sometimes one hundred, and that in the midle, or at the end or even at the beginning, the issue happens and stop processing.
no other choice to stop it, save the project. remove the licence of the 64 bits version, and try with the 32 bits one as sometimes, the bug doen't happen in one of the version (lol).

 it's out of question, to bypass a bug which must be fixed since 3 years, that i buy a second licence to have a 32 and 64 bits version at the same time. it's just ridiculous... Can't tell i'm happy, i like this software because it work very well most of the time, intuitive and do what it tell, but some bugs are very very annoying, this one is one of the worst, witht he empty srt file.

- an another one is the not in sync subtitle anymore when we cut several videos in batch import. only way is to edit/cut one video at a time, and not using the batch.

- as well i'm not sure if it's related to a driver issue, but what i own is one of the jog the most well known and used. i own a Shuttle Xpress from contour design, and when we import several videos to cut in batch import, at the point where 2 videos are reunited, if we cut close to this point, the software crash. lol. like end of video 1 and beginning of video 2. if i want to cut on the first frame it crash. so i cut some frames after the beginning and some before the end lol.. so when it crash, sometimes the auto save option work, and great, but sometimes, there is no autosave, and all the cuts are lost.

Hello Marty,
Thank you for your reply.
Could you please upload sample file with srt subtitle file to any file host service, e.g. Google drive (

yes i will, but i already reported this issue in the past too. I'll contact you through the contact form, thanks. that's really the biggest bug i have, the other ones are not that important and I can deal with them. Thanks.

Hello Marty,

The issue with hanging of Video Splitter on 0% on MKV files editing was fixed in the version 7.6.2102.25 available for download at its home page:

I installed this update yesterday and still have the issue. any idea ? :( if i uncheck the subitle stream (Mp4 or MKV + external Srt file) the processing work ok. it seems it's the subtitle track which block the process... :(.

If you get it with MKV file, then this issue is regrettably not yet fixed.

:( Hi Olga, this is years now that this issue has been reported... at least, can we have an explanation to why it's not fixed after so much time ? (please, an another better explanation than "it's on our to do list".).

This issue happens with Mp4 / H264 file too. it seems to be related to external subtitle (Srt) as if i remove the subtitle, the file is processed normally. Waiting since so long that this will be fixed :(.


Do you know when that update will be ready? SolveigMultimedia is great, but that subtitle bug is the only part that's problematic for me.

it's on their "to do" list since 2 years, i'm sure it will be fixed tomorrow, ahah lol... :( (waiting for that fix too, since 2 years :( )

Still having same issue on v7.4, it happens with all files with external SRT subs. Fortunately, it does not occur for individual fragments so I can at least merge them using mkvtoolnix.

same as you, so i edit in one fragment at a time like you... i only use the several import files to cut, for stuff without subtitles. Very frustrating but.. it's on their "to do list", the magic word...

Could you please send us the original input file that you open in Video Splitter and the project file?

Finally could reproduce the issue, with project, input and output videos ! just sent them to the support ! please, don't put this on the "to do" never fixed list.
there are 2 or 3 bugs very annoying who need really to be fixed and which are there since too long s
ome of these bugs are there since many years (like the Mkv never ending stuck,

the subtitles one,

or the Elecard one that i reported in mars 2019 :(..)

Please !!

Same request ! it's very annoying ! i'm doing my cuts with a Jog device and if the mouse is on the timeline, well..

Hello Marty!
Could you please send us the original input (...)

I'm already talking with the support about this since a long time. already provided a video file with project etc a lot of month ago, a link to a beta has been sent to me, but it didn't fixed the issue.
got the issue again tonight. unfortunatly it's on files i can't share with solveig. so i need to reproduce the issue with a video i can share. As soon as i can i'll provide all this "again", hoping a solution will be find.

I would suggest to check if you have both versions installed at the same time (by default in Program Files (x86)/Solveig Multimedia and in Program Files/Solveig Multimedia) and uninstall both of them in this case, then install the 64 bit version only and register it.

1) uninstalled both x86 and x64 tonight
2) installed x64 again
3) software didn't asked to re-enter my registeri / activation code, it was already registered, certainly it didn't removed the licence from the previous installation.
4 ) the issue just happened again 2 minutes ago... :( i'm very tired.
