    Default Embedded Subtitles on Xbox 360

    Hi,

    I have a MKV file that has embedded subtitles that are not being burnt into the transcoded file to play on the Xbox 360.

    The subtitles are being detected by Mezzmo in the Properties dialogue of the video, but they just don't end up appearing when I watch it on the 360. It's in SubRip (text/ms) format and 65001 (UTF-8) encoding.

    Try this: In the Properties dialog (Subtitles tab), click Extract Subtitles and Mezzmo will extract the SubRip subtitle channel from your MKV and save it on your computer as an external subtitles file. Next, go to the Transcoding tab and delete all transcoded files for this video. Now try streaming to your Xbox 360 and see if that is better.

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks for the reply. After I followed the subtitle extract procedure and deleted the transcoded files, it started working for about 10 mins, but then the video stream just crashed back to the Xbox file explorer menu which didn't happen before. The XBox and computer are connected through Gigabit and every other video stream perfectly.

    Is their any reason why the embedded English subtitles aren't just being burnt into the video during Transcode? I have a lot of videos with embedded subtitles and really would like to avoid extracting every single one.

    Thank you for the help so far! Mezzmo is the single best purchase I have made in quite a while and the support seems to be 2nd to none already

    The current version of Mezzmo (v3.0.1.0) is not automatically extracting embedded subtitle channels for burning. We are looking at automating this for a future version.
