Burning titles in Croatian

Post by hajaBle »

Description of problem or question:
Hi there,
I tried to combine subtitles and mp4 file (burning in the subtitles), which I succeeded in, but some letters (ž, š) are displayed as squares.
In Handbrake I chose my source (srt file), hrvatski language (croatian), char code ISO-8859-2, and the burn-in check mark.
All Croatian letters are well represented except š and ž. Which char-code should I choose? I googled the information which ISO to choose, but maybe that information is wrong.

Code: Select all

"Codeset": "ISO-8859-2",
Are you SURE about this codeset? The most common nowadays is UTF-8, and choosing the wrong character encoding will give bad results.

I tried UTF-8 first but it was worst than ISO-8859-2, it didn't show any specific croatian characters (č, ć, dž, đ, ž, š). :(
