All Videos have subtitles burned in them

Post by randalizer » Thu Mar 14, 2019 3:52 am

Description of problem or question:
I use the HandBrakeCLI to render all my videos.
About a week ago I upgraded HandBrake to the latest version. Ever since, all my videos have the first subtitle burned into the video.
I've purged my /home/<user>/.config/ghb folder
Uninstalled and re-installed
Still get subtitles burned into video

If I use the GUI it will default to add the subtitle as burned in but I can remove it. CLI, no matter what I do it still burns the subtitle.

Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):
Here is the CLI Command I Use:
/usr/bin/HandBrakeCLI -E copy --audio-fallback ac3 -t 3 --all-subtitles --subtitle-forced --all-audio -i ~/my.iso -o ~/myvideo.mp4 --preset="Fast 480p30" -b 4000
If I remove all option it still does it.



HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):
handbrake-cli/bionic,now 1:1.2.1-zhb-1ppa1~bionic1 amd64 [installed]
handbrake-gtk/bionic,now 1:1.2.1-zhb-1ppa1~bionic1 amd64 [installed]


Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):
Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS (Bionic Beaver)
Linux version 4.15.0-45-generic (buildd@lgw01-amd64-031) (gcc version 7.3.0 (Ubuntu 7.3.0-16ubuntu3)) #48-Ubuntu SMP Tue Jan 29 16:28:13 UTC 2019

Try a nightly build with --subtitle-burned=none

That works. I thought I tried that but guess I miss typed the parameter.
Still wondering why everything started defaulting to Burn the subtitle into video.

Thanks for you suggestion.

Bitmap subtitles like VOBSUB (DVD) and PGS (Blu-ray) aren't fully compatible with the MP4 container. The former will work with some players (notably not Apple products), and the latter is unworkable. By default HandBrake attempts to burn in the first subtitle matching your preferences and/or the defaults in the currently selected preset. Until recently, it wasn't possible to disable this behavior on the command line, hence the suggestion to use the nightly which supports =none.

Okay, on a related note, if I use a nightly build, would it allow me to passthrough VOSUB subtitles from a DVD rip (via MakeMKV) without having them burned in? I want to be able to toggle subtitles on and off, but can't do that without burning one subtitle track in. As on now, I am using Handbrake 1.1.2, and can end up with a MP4 file that has multiple subtitle tracks, which can be toggled on or off, but at least 1 of them has to be burned in. Is there any way to "skip" the burned-in subtitle file and only have the soft?

Yes, if you pick a container that supports VOBSUB, like MKV. It has other downsides, but broad format support.

HandBrake can do soft VOBSUB in mp4. The latest should not force you to burn in one. IIRC that was a bug that got fixed. But as BradleyS said, VOBSUB in mp4 isn't supported by many players. So if you expect your video to be portable to multiple players, you need to consider other options.

Alright, I got it to work. I updated my Ubuntu (was still on 16.04) and was able to then update Handbrake to the newest version, and it works just swell. Thanks a lot for your help everyone!
