Subtitle Composer

This is KDE-based, and comes with features such as time shifting, splitting and joining subtitle lines, error checking, movie preview and a bunch of configuration options. Other functions include the ability to split or join lines depending on the | separator, insert new subtitle lines, modify times, and a spell-checker. Subtitle Composer is pretty feature-complete and will allow to modify and manipulate a good range of formats with ease. The latest version is 0.5.3, using Qt4 and blending well in KDE. The video backends that can be used for previewing videos include GStreamer, MPlayer, Xine and Phonon, however, subtitles showed in the video preview widget are not displayed correctly.
