    Default Soft Coding Subtitles

    I use Mezzmo and a Sony W800B TV and "Sony Bravia KDL 2014 Models" as profile.

    I can soft code my subtitles using MKVToolNix in seconds and then use Mezzmo to watch the video with subtitle on my TV. If I use Mezzmo it tries to remux the file which takes a much longer time.
    But why can't Mezzmo do the soft coding part as MKVToolNix does so I don't have to use another software for soft coding the subtitle?

    Mezzmo can embed subtitles in the file but this requires transcoding which remuxes the audio and video into the transcoded file along with the subtitles. MKVToolNix may be using a different method to embed the subtitles in the file.

    Thanks for your reply but you just repeated what I said. The question is when it's possible to carry out a task in a matter of seconds wouldn't it be stupid to do it in minutes!?

    I don't know if I follow.

    The process is the same whether MKVToolnix or Mezzmo is remuxing the file. My only guess is that there are a couple of SSD's in the workflow when you use MKVToolnix and there is a platter drive in the workflow with Mezzmo. Remuxing speed is almost 100% dependent on I/O speed of your drives. I always figure it takes about 30-45 seconds/GB to remux video files with MKVToolnix on my platter drives, so I don't know how you'd remux 30GB in "seconds" unless both your source and destination are SSDs.

    Otherwise, I am not sure what you mean by "Soft Code".

    UPDATE: FWIW, I decided to remux a 9.08GB file with MKVToolnix from spinning platter to another spinning platter and timed it at 6 minutes and 42 seconds.
