For the past couple of versions of Vidcoder I haven't been able to embed VOBSUBs from a DVD into an MP4. I can hardcode them into the video but embedding them in the file doesn't work. I can get embedded subtitles to work if I encode an MP4 with Handbrake
or if I use an MKV container in Vidcoder, but I'd like to stick to MP4s and I vastly prefer Vidcoder over Handbrake.
In the Vidcoder log for the MP4, there's a part about subtitles that is different from the other two logs. It reads:
[03:35:02] * subtitle track 1, English (track 4, id 0x4) Picture [VOBSUB] -> Render/Burn-in
But in the other two logs (Vidcoder's MKV and Handbrake's MP4) that line reads:
[03:38:20] * subtitle track 1, English (track 4, id 0x4) Picture [VOBSUB] -> Passthrough
If you need me to I can post the full logs from all three encodes.
