I have an MKV with subtitles. I want to convert it to MP4, but HandBrake does support encoding subtitles from anything other than a DVD.

Is there a way to do what I want? I'll take anything on either Mac or PC.

Use mkvextract to pull the subs and fonts out of the .mkv, then use AVIDemux to re-encode the video, adding the sub track in the video filters.
