    Dear All

    I have a Panasonic HDV210 camcoders. I tried to convert the MTS file into a MKV file with the following command:


    Code:
    ffmpeg  -i x.MTS  -vcodec libx264  -crf 20    -acodec copy  x.mkv
    but FFmpeg gives problems, the ending line of the output says

    Code:
    ...
    [ass @ 0x22ba280] Only SUBTITLE_ASS type supported.

    I attach the information on the MTS file are attached in "mediainfo_output.txt", while the FFmpeg screen output is copied in ffmpeg_output.txt




    I hope somebody can help with this.


    Best Wishes
    Pietro

    Most camcorders don't shoot "subtitles" in the sense of movie translation

    It's usually a timing or metadata file, sometimes with the date/time

    It depends on the camera model; you can try extracting it maybe with ffmpeg, maybe with tsmuxer - sometimes it's a .sup file which then can be converted to another more common subtitle format

    Well I tried to extract subtitle with ffmpeg but I couldn't. By the way I wanted data and time of the footage onscreen, is that possible to add with ffmpeg?

    I can't find any info on this camera. What format does it record? AVCHD ?

    ffmpeg usually cannot read these types of subs . If it's AVCHD, you can use AVCHD2srt . That srt will contain the date/time and GPS (if applicable) data. You can use ffmpeg to hardcode or leave it as a softsub

    I think AVCHD, is this of help?

    This german website says AVCHD , and your mediainfo suggests AVCHD2.0 because it's 1080p50
    https://geizhals.de/panasonic-hc-v210-schwarz-a891990.html

    You can probably do what I said above, use avchd2srt to get the info in a .srt file

    Yes, mkvmerge works with AVCHD files to copy the date/time subs . It diplays ok in various media players

    I don't know a way to get ffmpeg to work with them natively, unless you convert to srt first
