Windows 7: How to hardcode subtitles in video?

How to hardcode subtitles in video?

Hi, i was wondering how do i hardcode a subtitle file (.srt ) into a video file.
In my case, i wanted to have a subtitle embedded into a 1080p MKV Video, without any loss on image quality or any change whatsoever to the video. How do i do that? And the easiest way to it, of course.

(I know how to play subtitles on the PC, but i want to hardcode it because i'm going to play it on my TV)


Thanks,
Alex.

I don't know of any good ways to do that. Generally you get files that were ripped with either a hard sub or a separate file such as the one your talking about. Taking that file and merging it into the video would take some kind of app to do it which you may or may not be able to find. But the point is that this step is usually done when the video file is created and your best option for doing this the other way is to redo the file from scratch.

If that option is not possible then the only other way I know of would be to put the file through something like sony vegas or adobe after effects and sub it by hand. Not something you want to try as you would need one of those 2 programs and a lot of time both for adding the subs and for rendering the finished video.

if u have xilisoft ultimate video converter you can load a sub file to encode when you convert formats
alternatively (and this is silly but it works ) burn a dvd with the sub file and then rip that dvd if u have one there may be a box to load subfile but it should just hardcode them when you rip the dvd you made ...yeah i know goofy but it werx

If you don't want to have any quality loss, then you should keep the subs as soft in the same directory as the video file and with the same file name. Any modern video player will pick up the subs and play them with the video.
Hard burning them will force you to convert the video, thus resulting in quality loss.
