I want to burn an srt file into a mp4 video. To make the subtitles perfectly visible, I want the subtitle text to be yellow on a brownish semi-transparent background.

I know that there are some GUI tools like Arista Transcoder but it does not allow color manipulation. I also know that ffmpeg make these manipulations possible but the gazillion flags on the docs are over the top of my head.

So I appreciate a ready made ffmpeg command to do so.
