I need to cut some subtitles (they belong to a movie wich is too large

If you have a movie (MPEG4 or so) with *encoded* subtitles, there are
no means of "removing" them, they are part of the image. If you rip a
DVD, then you can just leave out subtitles and/or choose a different
resolution/bitrate to achieve your space requirements.
For DVD ripping, I read somewhere that the optimal quality is
obtained at 0.2 bits per pixel (you have to multiply by framerate,
height and width to obtain actual bitrate) for MPEG4 and 0.16 bits
per pixel for AVC.
I have cut the movie with avidemux. On aviudemux' pages
there are mentioned some programs wich can cut subtitles:
Avidemux can split audio from video, but almost surely subtitles are
already hard-coded into the image.
GtkSubtitler, GsubEdit and KsubEditor
Are any of these a debian package?
If so wich line do I have to add to sources.list to get them?
marillat's repository has plenty of video software, one for all
If none of these are available through apt, is there another program
that cuts subs?
As already said, you cannot cut subtitles from a MPEG4 file with
image-coded subtitles, they are just part of the image. You can
transcode with lower bitrate and resolution, you can downgrade audio
and other things. You'll achieve a lower total bitrate and maybe it
will get into 700 MB.
