  2. Try with clever Ffmpeg-GUI.
    Load your movie, click main, click extract streams, select the streams to extract on the left and click extract.

  3. Thanks for reply.

    I'm not real familiar with Clever FFmpeg but I have opened it to look at.

  4. Ok I've seen the steps in Clever FFmpeg but it only presents video and audio streams not the text stream which is clearly seen in both the short and long view of MediaInfo. That says English timed text.

    VLC shows that the subtitle is selectable (of two) I think that is a commentary track but would have recheck.

    So it's not burned in and no indication of a VOB optical that could be extracted through Subtitle Edit.

  5. After examining closer there is one subtitle track and one empty 'subtitle' in VLC which only displays chapter indications-- no text.

  6. a Screenshot of how far I am before getting confused or losing where anything is saved...

    I seem to have to select target folder over and over at eash load. I've made a separate folder from thother samples I have to simplify.
    I'm confused as to what is showing as the file extention--- mov something something.

    I'll repeat and see what else I get.

  7. The extracted file called happened too fast for my seeing it. Then I took what it extracted and put it in Subtitle Edit. SuE told me
    the file is empty or vary short. The extraction must have failed. Note that I've seen 2 subtitle entried in VLC-- one was empty with chapters only printing to screen. I have no idea where the 'good' subtitle file is hidden or not seen by CleverFF.

    I will see what MKVToolnix shows.

  8. Here is a program I found in Videohelp softwacalled MP4Box GUI The screenshot shows more info-- something about Apple Quick time or something. I'll see if I get anything under demux

  9. Success. At least I got the extracted text file loaded into Subtitle Edit to proof the fact that there's good content in it.

    You are using a very old version.
    Use the latest release instead, v3.2.5.

    I must have been able to pull these elements of FFMpeg together last time. Right now I have the Github Master located on the desktop along with the GUI. These did not go to Programs Folder as I would expect. What is left to do?
    Quote Quote  
  12. On the FFMpeg, I moved the Master folder and GUI folder to Programs and tried the search function. Still have errors. I need the static or one of the builds yet for GUI to work. The help file in the GUI, well I'm not getting it right.
    Quote Quote  
  13. Now I have three FFMpeg folders and moved to programs. FFMPEG v. 7.00, the Master from Github and Clever GUI. I don't follow the difference between static and shared versions. I will see if the GUI can see version 7.00.
    Quote Quote  
  14. Here is the latest screen shot. FFprobe, etc. not found.
    Should I be pointing to the Master rather than V. 7.00? I have no idea. In the readme they don't mention any of the FFprobe etc stuff.

    I'll come back to this when I'm rested.

    Rather than using Handbrake I would use MakeMKV directly then looking at the file in MKVToolnix it should show all the tracks.

    Normally a mp4 file with timed text subtitles will automatically become a srt format when using mkvtoolnix (make sure it is the latest). I've done hundreds of them over the years. You might have to go into the Header editor to make sure the track is enabled although I doubt that would be the case.
