makemkvcon creates MKV with no Subtitle track

Post by plittlefield » Thu Apr 26, 2018 10:03 pm

I have a problem with a DVD and makemkvcon.

makemkvcon will create an MKV but without the subtitle track.

HandBrakeCLI finds the 3 tracks...

Code: Select all

Found main feature title 1
+ title 1:
  + Main Feature
  + vts 1, ttn 1, cells 0->11 (1888637 blocks)
  + duration: 01:21:18
  + size: 720x576, pixel aspect: 16/15, display aspect: 1.33, 25.000 fps
  + autocrop: 0/0/8/26

    + 12: cells 11->11, 197386 blocks, duration 00:07:56
  + audio tracks:
    + 1, Unknown (AC3) (2.0 ch) (iso639-2: und), 48000Hz, 224000bps
  + subtitle tracks:
    + 1, Unknown (4:3) [VOBSUB]
...but when I run the following command line...

Code: Select all

makemkvcon --minlength=1000 mkv disc:0 0 /tmp/
...with the settings of "+sel:all" it only uses the video and audio tracks in the resulting MKV file.

The subtitle track is missing.

Here is the mediainfo on the file it created:-
