Preserve embedded subtitles CLI

Post by sircameron » Mon Jan 14, 2019 8:59 am

Description of problem or question:
I have a video with embedded subtitles. When transcoding it, the subtitles are lost. I have tried many different settings using the app on Mac and using CLI on Ubuntu, but the subtitles are always removed.

When using the app, the presets actually work, but using --preset-import-file in CLI, the presets are not used - only defaults.
This makes it very difficult to see why, in the app, subtitles are preserved but not when using CLI.

ultimately, subtitles are not working when transcoding CLI, but are working with the app. I need the CLI to work.
In the app it works by default - no special settings needed.

Has anyone managed:
1 - to get the preset file to work correctly in CLI
2 - to get subtitles to work in CLI

Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):
get a video file with embedded subtitles and transcode it using CLI.

HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):
app 1.2.0
cli 1.1.2 (no newer version available at the time of writing)

Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):
Ubuntu 16.04 and macOS 10.13 High Sierra

HandBrake Activity Log ***required*** (see How-to get an activity log)

This is a dump from the app. not cli.

Code: Select all

Re: Preserve embedded subtitles CLI

[11:24:11] Skipping subtitle scan. No suitable subtitle tracks.

Handbrake did not see any subtitles in the source. Did it include any?

If you want to see the log information from the CLI, append "2>/path/to/log" to the end of your command line, where "/path/to/log" is where the log will be written.

Re: Preserve embedded subtitles CLI

Post by sircameron » Tue Jan 15, 2019 1:24 pm

Thanks
yes, there are definitely subtitles in the video.

Skipping subtitle scan. No suitable subtitle tracks. -> this is the app output, which does actually preserve the subtitles.

CLI also doesn't use the preset file, it simply uses defaults - which makes this process more frustrating.

The preset works in the app and the subtitles are preserved.
But exporting the preset file and using it in CLI doen't work.

--preset-import-file just makes the preset(s) in the file(s) named available in the CLI. You need to specify a preset name from those file(s) using --preset if you want to use a particular preset. This is covered in the documentation.

Handbrake 1.1.2 is not supported.

Thanks I will check it out.

What do you mean 1.1.2 isn't supported?
It's the only version of CLI available.

I'm not sure what could cause you to think that; 1.2.0 CLI is available for all supported platforms on https://handbrake.fr/downloads2.php

https://handbrake.fr/downloads2.php lists version 1.2.0 as the current version of the CLI for Linux.

The command line has to be told to include subtitles. What happens if you add --subtitle 1-99 to the command line?

Then you're not using the PPA, or not on a supported version of Ubuntu.

I removed handbrake and did the following:

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:stebbins/handbrake-releases
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install handbrake-cli
HandBrakeCLI --version

HandBrake 1.1.2
edit: that's on Ubuntu 14 and 16.

Understood. Thanks!

PS: I managed to get subtitles working. Thanks for everyone's help on that :)

Just so you know, the version being distributed by Ubuntu is known to have problems with subtitles and several other things, because the packager decided to use the "native" libraries in place of the ones patched to work with handbrake. And it isn't just Ubuntu that does that.

The flatpak distribution will, hopefully, provide a distribution-independent way to get an official copy, without so much politics behind it.
