Hardcoding subtitles on .m4v's

Hey guys,

I normally wouldn't do this, because I hate doing something that can't be easily undone, but I have a bunch of .m4v's that work perfectly on my iTunes, but on the PS3 the subtitles aren't recognized. I could convert them to .avi's but..... DO NOT WANT. And I really don't want to reconvert them either, I was hoping the job was done when I found a good format that worked for both the Mac and PS3 (and future Apple TV).

I've checked around the netz and can only find years old forum posts that provide dated shareware. Anybody know of a free (or cheapish), updated solution to hardcode subtitles on .m4v's?

Thanks a bunch, fellas, I really appreciate it.

The PS3 doesn't recognize .srt in the mp4/m4v? That sucks.

Unfortunately, to hard sub a movie, you need to re-convert.

Handbrake will do it. Just check the "burn-in" checkbox.
