    Is it possible to replace subtitles in an AVI file?

    Hard-encoded subtitles?
    There's no way to do it, you'll need to add some black bars to cover them.

    Virtualdub it's the way.

    a lot of AVI subs come with subs that are auto loaded (do you see a file probably with an srt extension and the same name as the AVI, remove/rename this and the subs will vanish.

    2) As for the black bars: if you have subs that are in the black edges of the avi then do that (or trim and add a border) if you have them in the picture then I suggest you mess with a logo remover, you will get a good bit of noise from there though (I am fairly sure you will have seen a logo removed TV show at some point, expect it to be as good (the options used are not alwasy the best) or slightly worse (a logo is less than 10% of the picture.
    FFDshow (the app I wager is used to decode video on your system) has the option and there is a virtual dub filter from donald graft/neuron2's site (the one linked on virtual dubs homepage). I believe mplayer's encoding part also can do it although I tend not to use it so you will have to look it up. I also suggest even if you use the FFDshow option then you look up the vdub filter as the help file for this details all that you want to know.

    Edit: if it is a .divx file (a slight tweak on the AVI container) then you may get lucky and have soft subs installed.

    There was just one file in the folder I downloaded, the AVI.

    Medium fries and medium drink for 17 cents with your Arby's subs.

    Cool people only read the title of a thread and skip all the posts.

    If there was just the AVI file then they are encoded onto the video itself and can't be removed, just masked by either covered over with a box or bluring them.
