Many subtitle problems

Post by markfilipak » Tue Aug 06, 2019 8:55 am

Subtitles is driving me nuts.
Description of problem or question:
The source has 18 subtitle tracks.
None of them load automatically, though I have 'Selection Behavior' set to '(all)'.
If I fiddle repeatedly with 'Add Track' 'Add All Remaining Tracks' I can get '1 English (PGS)' to finally appear, but none of the 17 other subtitles.
'1 English (PGS)' has the 'Burn In' check box grayed out with a check mark in it.
Even if I delete the subtitle table entry, the MP4 made has forced English subtitles.
Even if I launch HandBrake afresh (with no subtitles listed and without fiddling), the MP4 made has forced English subtitles.
A setup that is exactly the same makes an MKV correctly and with all subtitles.

Speculation: Could the problem be caused by the Chinese & Korean subtitle names being unicode? If so, I don't know how to fix it (if it can be fixed).

Though I'm already bald and therefore can't pull my hair out, suicide is an option. :wink:

Thanks for help.
Mark.

Subtitles is driving me nuts.
A setup that is exactly the same makes an MKV correctly and with all subtitles.
Wow, you've almost answered your own question.

If you'd done a little search beforehand you would have found your answer as your problem is probably the 2nd most common question asked, I'm sure almost everyday.

You can NOT put PGS (BITMAP) subtitles in an MP4 file!
What will happen is only one will be selected and burned in by default, the rest forgotten.
If you want all the subtitles, use MKV. If you want MP4 output, select one subtitle, it will be burned into the video, always visable, you can't turn it on or off, welcome to MP4. The choice is yours...

If I fiddle repeatedly with 'Add Track' 'Add All Remaining Tracks' I can get '1 English (PGS)' to finally appear, but none of the 17 other subtitles.
'1 English (PGS)' has the 'Burn In' check box grayed out with a check mark in it.
MP4 supports zero PGS tracks. HB can burn in one subtitle track to a video.

I didn't do a little search. I did a lot of search; and I got a million hits (all of which seemed unrelated).

Apparently HandBrake doesn't know PGS subtitles can't be put into an MP4, eh?

The MP4 standard doesn't allow PGS subtitles in MP4.

By the way. I read the MP4 standard a long time ago and have never used it until now. I believe it does not say that it doesn't support picture subtitles. I believe it doesn't say that it does. There's quite a difference there.

HB knows, that's why it's burning in one PGS track when you ask for one or more.

And you'll note I said "supports zero" and "doesn't allow" rather than "disallows".

I previously (in this topic header) wrote
Even if I delete the subtitle table entry, the MP4 made has forced English subtitles.
Even if I launch HandBrake afresh (with no subtitles listed and without fiddling), the MP4 made has forced English subtitles.
Now, why would that be, eh?

Question, when you did "a lot of search", did that include using "pgs subtitles mp4 handbrake" as the search terms for Google?

First hit is the documentation that explains the behavior you're lamenting. After that are hits from all over internet explaining that PGS and MP4 are incompatible, and that handbrake burns ONE subtitle in, if selected, and ignores the rest.

Well obviously it does because it never gave you any. Hence you original question. Am I missing some thing here?
