Handbrake-Subtitles
Posted by: Kate
Date: June 25, 2011 11:27PM
I've tried several settings in Handbrake and I still am not getting subtitles. Burned in makes them there all the time (not what I want), and when I try the other settings, Ican't seem to figure out how to access them in my m4vs.

Any suggestions?

What format are you converting from?

Not all movies have the requisite text track to pull from (but yeah, they all seem to have bitmap which can only be burned in.)

So look for that instead (text, not bitmap) as a choice and then later you should see it when turning on Closed Captions/subtitles.

I've found in the past when converting an mkv that Handbrake is basically defective in this department. The app I used was mkx specific though-- not sure about the TS file, sorry.

I've had no luck with switchable subtitles in Handbrake. What I ended up doing was converting the movie twice - once with subs and once without. Clunky, but it works until I find a better route.

Same here. I just burn them in. I figured there will never be a time that I will watch something like Ip Man in Madarin without the subtitles. So who cares if they are burned in.

Same here mostly.

The ones I don't burn in are for my wife's Spanish class. She needs one in Spanish sans subtitles and another with subs; so I both (and a third in English if that was the originating language and Spanish was dubbed. Luckily she doesn't need many movies.

You can find subtitle files for a lot of things online. You can then use VLC to import the subtitle file into your movie. What I don't remember is if VLC will save the movie with the subtitles and if they will be available to other applications.

Gareth, that exactly is what can be done with handbrake, but I know nohing about the subtitles' extension or kind of file, nor where to find them.

You can get subs online at [www.opensubtitles.org]
they are .SRT format (which is standard)

Another option would be to use DVDRemaster Pro to encode if you are looking for soft subtitles instead of burned in subtitles. The feature was just added in version 7.

EDIT - Regular or Pro version has this ability. Difference is number of subtitles.
