While convert from h264 to h265 the SRT dubtitles gets converted to ASS

Hello all!

There is a weird thing I've observed couple of days ago: due to various reasons I started to convert my my library with x265 and when I have the subtitle I do embed it in the file (not hardcoded of course!) Having a Samsung ue50h6400 TV i've observed the subtitles are not shown, then I figured it out that after converting the files the SRT subtitles are converted to ASS.

Is this a feature that I could turn off somewhere? Pretty lame that now I have to demux subtitles, convert them back and mux again the files...

thanks

That's the way the HandBrake core handles subtitles and I don't believe there's an option to change it. You could ask them about it.
