Okay. I have a bunch of MKV files that I want to put on my iPod. But you see, the subtitles aren't hard subs. They aren't separate files, either--they're embedded into the MKV. I used a program to convert them to MP4 files, but the subtitles vanished . How would I get these videos into MP4 without losing the subtitles and their quality?
In short --> MKV file with embedded subs --> I want it hard subbed so there is always subs no matter if I convert it or anything

It would help to know what software you have already tried.
Some tools can read the subs inside and use them when converting, some cannot. You can always use MKVExtractGUI (and mkvtoolnix) to get the subs out so your current convers0on tool can read them (assuming it handles external subs and this video has subs in a format your tool can read)

Thanks, for your reply. Ok, I have now got the sub file extract from the video. It's a *.ass file. What's the easiest way to hard sub it from here.
Is there a way to extract the sub and then hard sub the files but do it in bulk? I have a lot of vids to do this for
