Using XSTE

I went into Kino and exported sound from one of my movies (Export/Audio). The default sample rate was 32KHz, so I changed it per the xste documentation to 44.1KHz. xste requires the name of this file to be sound.wav and it must be in ~/.subtitles/project/sound.wav. Also, click the green button that says AUDIO RAW so that it turns yellow and says AUDIO WAV.

Hitting the AUTO button causes xste to generate a list of frame numbers corresponding to when speaking occurs. This sorta works. Then you chose the number from the list and listen to what’s there and transcribe it. There’s a subtitle preview, but I need to get a .mpv file out of Kino for this. SMILUtils will do it, but the site is down now. I’ll try tomorrow.
