    What are your input files? .srt subtitle? what video / audio streams? Do you have raw streams?

    Or do you have a pre-existing .mkv container with video/audio already in it?

    It's pretty easy, all you have to do is push the add button, and select whatever you want to put into the .mkv container, then push start muxing.

    For the subtitles to work, you might have to rename them to the same filename as the video file before muxing

    What format are your subs in?

    mkvmergegui just "packages" it in the .mkv container

    You need something like DirectVobSub to be able to play them back on PC

    mkvmerge does not hardcode permanent subtitles, it softcodes them.

    You have to re-encode with vsfilter for permanent subtitles

    If you want to softsub (selectable), it should accept .srt, just enter the unicode type in the subtitle charset (in the "format specfic options" tab). I am using version 2.2.0 for mkvmerge

    You could also convert them to .ssa subs, then you could specify fonts, colors, sizes and more effects

    If you still can't figure it out, upload your subs here, and I'll have a look at it

    Cheers

    Oh, my subtittle format is Unicode, use fonts such as: Arial, News Time Roman..v...v... It's not format UTF-8, UTF-8 is format Unicode but usually on Web, I don't undetstand more between Unicode and UTF-8 . I solved my problem to add sub on mkv by way covert subtittle Unicode to UTF-8, but when i output file, The subtittle isn't display .
    _And i have one more problem, about vsfilter, it's only a file *.dll, how do i use it ?

    What format is your video stream in? Can you get subs to play back outside of the .mkv container?

    vsfilter is for hardcoding subs, you have to use avisynth and an encoder.

    directvobsub is just for playing it back.

    If you want to hardcode your subs (permanent), don't use mkvmerge, use these guides

    about vsfilter, it's only a file *.dll, how do i use it ?
    First of all, get the version 2.33
    Then, copy it into c:\windows\system32\
    3rd, run "regsvr32 vsfilter.dll"
    4th, run "rundll32 vsfilter.dll,DirectVobSub"
    (or create a desktop shortcut with these parameters)
    5th, tweak it as needed.

    Thanks. I have just checked it, and it is a 100%-healthy 16-bit text file
    I thought that MKVmerge might be having issues with non-SSA unicode,
    but you have just shown it's not the case.

    It has to do with the numbering sequence. I don't know the technical explanation for it.

    Your working file starts with "1"

    The not-working file starts with "0"

    If you delete the 1st entry, or edit it to start with "1", mkvmerge will accept it

    The second subtitle file has two byte-order-marks

    Try this one:

    modified-secret.dvdrip2.srt.zip

    I used a hex editor to examine your .SRTs (Hexplorer, to be specific).
    The first two bytes of a Unicode-text are its "Unicode-ID", so to speak.
    It can be either "FF FE" (little-endian) or "FE FF" (big-endian). I suppose
    that a write-error occurred when that second .srt file was being saved
    on the hard disk, take a look at the picture below:



    I just deleted the redundant bytes (the underlined ones),
    saved the result as a new .srt file, and "uba!" ^_^

    Hi poisondeathray,

    what do you mean with that mkvmerge does not hardcode permanent subtitles, it softcodes them?

    Can i use mkvmerge to attach a subtittle to a movie (mkv format), so i can watch the movie with the subtittle on my LCD-TV?

    Yes you should be able to play it if you have it set up correctly

    Hardcoding subtitles means permanently burning them in while re-encoding. This is destructive and cannot be undone and are always present (cannot be switched off)

    Attaching subtitles by "softcoding" is reversible. You can always undo them, change the subs (e.g. different language), turn them on/off etc....

    What kind of subs are they? (.e.g srt?, idx/sub etc..)

    Install DirectVobSub, and set the output options in MPC to VMR9/7 renderless

    If you want you could use another media player eg.. kmplayer or vlc

    If you want to hardcode, you will lose quality. But you could use xvid4psp for example.

    the reason that i want to hardcode sub is I want to burn the mkv movie on a DL dvd og play it in my bluray-player, I'm just afraid that the sub is not shown by my bluray-player when i use mkvmerge.

    I have tried to use XviD4PSP to hardcode the sub, and i got this error when i try to add a sub: "File don't have video stream" .
    The sub is *srt

    Hi your help was helpful tyvm. Just a question. So the MKV i start off with is 330,548 KB and once I add the SRT sub file and MUX it the output fil is much smaller, 102,460 KB. Does that mean i'm losing video quality?
