Adding a subtitle file to an mkv file?

16
Found 6th Jun 2010
I've downloaded a 6gb film which also has a subtitle file with it, how do i add the subtitles to the mkv file? or is there a way to add them to a mpeg file as i used mkv2vob to convert the mkv to a file playable on my ps3

the subtitle file i have is a .sfv file

Play the movie, then drag the subtitles file over the film.
mkv2vob has a "automatic add subs" check box when converting I believe
sfv file?? should be srt/idx or sub there too m8-this isnt "carlos" by any chance is it?

yeah i've heard good things about it, just need to get these sub sorted:)
im pretty sure a sfv is just to tell you the contents of the files you have downloaded not the subs, have you tried skipping through the film to see if they are hardcoded? (burnt onto the film)

it's got 2 options "always transcode subtitles" and "load subtitles from file"

do i selecet both?
yes, leave the SRT file in the same folder as the MKV
an sfv file is a checksum file, used to make sure that everything has been downloaded correctly.

A subtitle file can have many diff formats: srt, sub....etc


If there are no other files, then I can think of 3 things:
-the sub file is embedded in the container and just needs to be turned on in the player.
-the subs are hardcoded.
-there are no subs

it's not embedded in the file, not hardcoded and there are subs for this film as i've got a dvd rip, looks like i'll just have to find the srt file from somewhere else
subtitles should already be in the mkv, if playing with vlc, right click whilst playing and go to video and then subtitles and then click the language and it should come up
agreed with jat r.

The mkv will have the subtitles already included within the MKV file.
check subscene.com for the srt
