Keep / Passthrough Multiple Subtitles Unconverted ( PGS )



I’m working on automating the compression of my backups and so far have had mostly good luck replicating the manual process I was using. Subtitles are the one thing I’m stuck on so far. Is there any way to keep multiple unconverted subtitle tracks on an MKV file. I’m converting from mkv to mkv and just compressing the video down. I was previously doing this with handbrake through the gui. So far the only subtitles I have gotten out of MCEBuddy are a single track converted SRT file which is added to the MKV. Any insight would be much appreciated. I’m using version 2.4.9 with the following profile settings:

ffmpeg-general=-threads 0
ffmpeg-video=-ss 0 -vf yadif=0:-1:1,hqdn3d -vcodec libx264 -b 1800k -x264opts me=hex:trellis=2:subq=8:partitions=all:8x8dct=1:ref=5:rc-lookahead=50:keyint=25:min-keyint=20:bframes=3:weightb=1:level=4.0:b-pyramid=normal:direct=auto:mixed-refs=1:deblock=-1,-1:no-fast-pskip=1:no-dct-decimate=1:b-adapt=2:threads=auto -map 0:v -sn

Currently MCEBuddy only supports embedding a single subtitle file. We are looking to add the feature of multiple subtitle tracks in future. It will pick the first subtitle track encountered or if you’ve selected an audio language in the conversion task settings it will pick a subtitle track with the same audio language setting.

Try today’s 2.4.10 BETA build and use one of the build in profiles. MCEBuddy now supports processing, extracting and embedding multiple tracks if present in the original file.
