I am using Handbrake GUI version and Dropfolders to execute Handbrake. I was able convert video files successfully without any parameter. It uses default preset I downloaded from lifehacker.com. Now I am trying to hard-code the subtitle into the converted mp4 format video. I have tried:
-s 1 --subtitle-burn
But the handbrake gives me this message and fails:
[17:13:36] hb_stream_open: open C:\Subtitle.Eng.srt failed [17:13:36] scan: unrecognized file type
Is there some other option I need to include here? I also do not want to specify the the subtitle file name so that the the process is automated. Hopefully Handbrake will choose the available subtitle at the specified folder.
The objective here is for me to convert an avi or mkv movies to mp4 format that is optimized for an iPad 2 with subtitles that may be UTF-8.
