  1. I have a srt file here which I processed using suprip (used virtualbox to use this app). The sup file was extracted from a BD rip using tsmuxer. I opened the resulting srt file and it looks ok.

    Anyway, I encoded my BD rip of the a video and added the srt from within handbrake. I checked the queue and it does say the subtitle is being added.

    My problem is that when I viewed the resulting mp4 in VLC, it cannot see any subtitles stream in the video.

    I haven't tried the nightly yet but just wondering if this is a common problem?

    Thanks very much!

    ps. I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask so please move accordingly.

    Do you want to hardcode the subs into to the video? Then I think the subtitle must be in ssa/ass format.

    Or else see if you can enable the subtitle in vlc under subtitle->subtitle track.

  3. well the add subtitle button in handbrake specifically says srt so it must be in SRT format. and I already checked that setting in VLC and it can't see any subtitle stream.

    Handbrake and subs can be pretty tricky. You can always add/multiplex the srt to a mp4 or mkv after with mymp4boxgui or mkvtoolnix.

    If you want to hardcode the subs see http://www.epinionated.co.uk/handbrake-burn-in-subtitles-mkv-mp4-apple-tv/

  5. Thanks for the suggestions. I'll look into them. I just want soft subs not burn them in
