    Hello :

    I'm pretty new to working with video files, so please excuse me if my question seems stupid. I have a 1080p BlueRay .mp4 file of a Japanese film that comes with English subs in the form of an .srt file. The .mp4 file by itself is ~2.88G. When I meld the .mp4 and .srt files with both Any Video Converter and Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate I end up with a 10G file. (I use those two programs because they allow me to change the font size and color.)

    Is there a way by which I can combine video and subtitle files without a major increase in file size, and retain quality? Any assistance would be much appreciate -- but please remember I'm a hopeless newbie. Thanks.

  2. MP4Box together with one of its GUIs will allow you to embed the subtitles with no reencoding or quality loss at all.

    As for changing the subtitle font and color, better might be for you to convert the SRT to ASS or SSA where you can define about any styles (font, size, color, position, etc.) you like.

    Many thanks! I'll give that a try.

  4. Note that some players (standalone media players, the players built into Smart TVs or Blu-ray players) don't display embedded soft subs, only soft subs in a separate file. And they usually only support SRT.

    My usual practice is to copy movies onto a thumb drive or a small external hard drive and plug the drives into the USB slot on my dvd player. Both TV & dvd player are Sony. Marrying video files with SRT files in the programs I listed in my original posting works well, except for the file size.

    I don't think you were muxing soft subs with the existing video. You were burning the subs into the video and recompressing it. Otherwise the size would not have changed by so much.

    But go ahead and try what manono suggested. Maybe you'll be lucky.
