Subtitle Issues w/ MKV files

Dec 11, 2011 at 6:55 PM

I really like VidCoder and I find it very easy to use.  I did run into an issue that I needed help with.  Not sure if anyone else has run into this problem before.

 

I've been having issues trying to convert MKV files that I download with subtitles and converting them into M4V files.  The original MKV files have subtitles but after I convert them over to M4V files the video loses the subtitles.  All the MKV files I have downloaded do not have SRT files.  I 've tried several times to see if I get the subtitles to show as a M4V file but I had no luck.  I've only really ran into this issue with MKV files.  Any advice is greatly appreciated.  Thanks for your help.

In the Subtitles dialog is the Add Subtitle button grayed out?

It is not grayed out.  I think the subtitles is incorporated into the video without it being a separate file (SRT).

But the subtitles aren't added when you click that button? You have to opt in to transfer the subtitles over.

I'll try that and see if that works.  Thanks!
