Haven't had the stomach yet to watch Expelled? Watched it, but hurled? Know people who think it's just the greatest flick ever and want to set them straight? You need this subtitle track! See how it works:
It's available in two formats. The first is an SRT file. It should be compatible with pretty much everything, and is supported by YouTube and Google Video. The catch is, it may look different on different systems depending on font, screen size, etc.
The second is an SSA file. It's not recognized everywhere, but where it works it's better because the font and size are specified, so the subtitles should work better.
Here's a ZIP file containing both of them:
Octamed has also graciously hosted a torrent of the subtitle, renamed several different times to match common names for the movie:
Instructions on using it are for VLC Media Player (download it here
). Other players should recognize it; check their documentation for more information.
Put the subtitle file in the same directory as your Expelled video file. Rename it to match. For example, if the video file is "expelled.avi" then name the file "expelled.srt"; if the video file is "Expelled - No Intelligence Allowed.mp4", name the file "Expelled - No Intelligence Allowed.srt" (note: keep all extensions the same as they were).
For VLC (and most other video players), this should Just Work. If it doesn't:
Right-click the screen; go to "Video/Subtitles Track/Load File..." Select the subtitle file in the dialog box.
If that doesn't work, then click the Video menu at the top and go to "Subtitles Track/Load File..." Select the subtitle file in the dialog box.
If that doesn't work, go to "Media/Advanced Open File...", click on your video, check "Use a subtitles file", click "Browse...", select the subtitle file, then click Open, and then Play.
If none of that works, locate a small child and ask for assistance.
The subtitles start up right at the start of the movie itself, right after the unnecessarily-long Premise Media promo. If it shows up before or after, then know that this lag is on your system. Hopefully it won't lead to any confusion as you watch.
