Re: Closed caption support for Apple TV

I just posted about this again under "Bugs" because I had forgotten I posted this in 2014. I've been working around this problem since 2014 without a resolution or any further comments to this post. Perhaps I offended someone. I'm sorry I didn't Google "paste bin website" in the first place, but now...

Closed captions don't work on OSX?

Please describe the problem in as much detail as possible: I record TV shows off the air using EyeTV. I transcode them with Handbrake to reduce file sizes. When I select the Apple 1080p30 Surround preset, even if I select the subtitles settings and click the Configure Defaults button and check the ...

Re: Closed caption support for Apple TV

I read "How To Get Questions Answered on These Forums " but I don't know what a "pastebin website" is. So I've included my encode log within this post. I see the statement "add_ffmpeg_subtitle: unknown subtitle stream type: 0x0" The subtitle settings in Handbrake shows the track as "0: English (Text...

Re: Closed caption support for Apple TV

Yes they are not the same, but HandBrake can converts Closed Captions to subtitles, you will lose some information like position or some animations, but the textual content will be identical. You should post an activity log of your encode as per forum rules. A small EyeTV sample file would be usefu...

Re: Closed caption support for Apple TV

The AppleTV can play subtitles tracks too. Thanks for your comment. I do understand that the AppleTV can display subtitles, but it's my understanding those aren't quite the same as closed captions, which are for the hearing impaired. But that's not really my point. I record programs with ElGato Eye...

Closed caption support for Apple TV

From the online help: "CC tracks within an MP4 appear as a subtitle track, not a CC track" As far as I can tell, HandBrake does not support closed caption tracks in the format Apple uses for iTunes playback on an Apple TV. Yes, "subtitles" are supported, but they will not appear in the playback opti...
