What is the best way to merge a .srt subtitles file with a Movie, and have it subtitled online. I have a mp4 file and I've already made the subtitles in a .srt file. I've used the SubMerge software, but when I upload the generated mp4 to vimeo, there's no subtitles. It seems that subtitles generated by this software are some kind of meta-data inside the video. Is there any way to RENDER the subtitles whithin the video, so it can go online in any video website?
Submerge is what you asking for, you must be doing something wrong.
Hope this helps. /Ulrik
What you did is… you used -> Soft, non-destructive subtitles
I love them a lot because I can attach Japanese, English and German subtitles (and also choose between several audiotracks). This is extremely flexible.
If you want the uploaded movie to always appear with subtitles attached you need to export them hard burned / hardcoded. Like Ulrik said, all the pictures must be processed aka the whole movie will get rendered again with subtitles.
Here are some software tips:
