Hi guys! I'm trying to hardcode subtitles to .mkv files, which would then be converted to a format suitable for watching in iTunes. I'm using Handbrake and I attempted to proceed in the manner described in this thread: http://forums.afterdawn.com/t.cfm/f-158/hardcode_subs_embedded_in_mkv_and_convert_to_ipod-853629/ However, checking the box "Burned In" doesn't seem to be possible at all. After this I found out on the Handbrake website that "SRT files are pass-through only. They cannot be burnt into the video". So what am I supposed to do to get my subs hardcoded? Convert them into .ssa? I tried that too, but Handbrake doesn't seem to allow any other subs than .srt, since I can only find a button for "Import SRT", no other formats. Converting the videos themselves doesn't pose a problem, just the subs. Any help would be much appreciated! Edit 1: Just tried Avidemux (2.5). Video turned out fine with subs hardcoded... except that neither Quicktime nor iTunes recognizes the file, even though it's clearly in mp4. Furthermore, XviD2PSP 5 was extremely unresponsive on my OS - Win 7 Ultimate - and version 6 lacked the option to hardcode subs (at least I couldn't find it anywhere). This is starting to get really annoying!
