convert XviD with subtitles to work in itunes (apple tv)

I have a file in Xvid with a separate subtitle file, how can i convert to a useable format and incorporate the subs?

i have visual hub but i done think it will handle the subs...

if i open it in VLC the subs are fine, but i want to view on the big screen with ATV...

I've been doing this for over 1 year; as I need subs

This is what I do to watch on my Apple TV, In VisualHub drag the video file in then click on Advanced, Force Quicktime decoding then save settings.

Just make sure that your movie file & subs are in the same folder and the video file is named "Movie" and subs are also named "Movie".srt.

Hope that helps, works perfect for me.
