    How Do I Add .srt Subtitle to Movie in WMM?

    Hi. I am trying to create a project so I can burn a video clip with
    subtitles to a dvd. Do I use Movie Maker? If so, then how do I add the .srt
    file properly to burn the dvd with the subtitles? I tried to drag and drop
    the .srt file into the project, but I receive an error message stating I am
    missing a necessary codec. What codec do I need, how do I download and
    install and use it?

    Many thanks.

    I've only used WMM twice...it's a very basic video editing program... you might need to look at a more upmarket Non-linear editor (NLE) like Ulead Video Studio if you intend doing things other than very basic videos.

    Though, saying that I don;t really know if WMM does facilitate subtitles. Somehow I doubt it
