Subtitles ASS

Post by bobleon »

I'm trying to embed SRT subtitles so I can correct accents and interrogations in an MKV video. I have read what can be done with MKVtoolnix but it does not support Mac.
Any ideas????

Handbrake version 1.1.1

Operating System MacOS High Sierra

1. ASS subtitles are not the same as SRT. ASS subtitles must be embedded in the MKV file. This you've probably figured out. SRTs are not as "powerful", and they can be separate files.

2. Who says mkvtoolnix is not available for Mac? Have you visited their website?
