How to use DVD Teletex titles?

I have just downloaded & installed your new version of Handbrake which I have been using for years. As we get older its much more important to have subtitles include because my wife struggles with hearing. I see that certain types of titles can be either burnt in or passed through. When I have to cr...

Auto add subtitles feature not included in latest release?

I find that some features that were in the nightly builds aren't in your official new release. One that I thought that was particularly useful was being able to set options to always add subtitles for your chosen language. Unless I'm going blind I can't find this feature in the latest release & can'...

When I import them into Handbrake I'm apt to get a video setting on 720x400. The preview appears as if the picture is squashed. What I have then done is look up the pictur...
