  1. Hello. just needing some help on how to merge a subtitle file into an mp4 so the subtitle can be burn in into the video.

    I have an mp4 video here without a subtitle. I also have a subtitle for it in ssa (converted from srt using subtitle edit) format. I was reading an old thread from here where it says I burn in a subtitle if it's ssa format using handbrake. Anyway, I used isubtitle to merge the ssa and mp4 (resulting video container is .mov) and open the resulting video in handbrake but it won't let me burn in the subtitle. I tried OSX and windows (via virtualbox) of handbrake and same results.

    Any tips on how it can be done? thanks

    Try multitplex the video and ssa with mymp4boxgui. Or use mkvtoolnix and make a mkv with the ssa.

    or just hardcode with xvid4psp 5 (click on it for guides).

    Its very simple
    Goto the subtitle tab on handbrake and select import a subtitle stream, next add the source of subtitle!
    use mp4 or mkv .. both work fine

    Handbrake won't burn in SRT files and you can't use SSA files directly.

    xvid4psp as Baldrick suggested. It's not as easy to use as Handbrake, but it actually works to hard code subtitles.

    RipBot is another one that can do it, if you prefer.

    JMO, but I think RipBot is somewhat simpler to use than xvid4psp.
    Pull! Bang! Darn!

    You have 2 problems, first, you need add your subtitle to that video, second, you need burn this video to DVD. The first problem you had already solved, actually we can focus the attention only to second step - how to burn this subtitle video to DVD. Check the answer replied by others here about your second step: http://forum.videohelp.com/threads/315540-Burning-movies-with-subtitles, good luck for you.

    Oh, sorry, mistake, i think i just replied another questions to this thread. Yes, it seems mrjayviper only have the first problem. And the referral thread i posted still can answer his questions. They recommended many free but useful software for him.
