    Hello,

    I'm wondering how to make an 1080p mp4 playable in iTunes with subtitles from an 1080p mkv file.

    It must be in same quallity that in mkv file.

    You can try this tool I programmed to convert into an ".mp4" container and then just rename that to ".m4v". There is no guarantee, but it might actually work. If it does, it's very fast and without any loss in quality.

    I have no idea if the subtitles work though. Are they in a seperate file or included in the ".mkv"? If the latter, I think you might be out of luck...

    Did the input have a DTS track?

    BTW, you really should give Subler a try. It rocks.

    I am going to make a couple of assumptions. First, I'm assuming that you are using MakeMKV to do your Blu-ray rips. When you rip you need to make sure that you check the subtitles that you want so that they are in the MKV container. Second, I assume that you are using Handbrake to do your conversions. To make this work you need to go to the nightly builds https://build.handbrake.fr/view/Nightlies/ as the release build doesn't have subtitle functionality for Blu-ray.

    Open your properly formed MKV file, select the target format from Handbrake's presets, and click on the subtitles button. Select the track(s) you want included and convert. If you are using something other than these two I can't help you, but these are both free and work flawlessly, so I don't know why you wouldn't.

    Yes it have a DTS track. I guess that Subler is only for subtitles only, isn't it?

    Nope, it's an all-in-one remuxer, this is why I recommend it.

    I've had that for a while now but it doesn't seem to do anything for me.

    It'll say 'Done.', but nothing actually happens.

    That is seriously strange. Error messages are caught and displayed on screen, so if there is no error message, the output file should have been produced. Can you tell me what container you wanted to convert into what other container? Or maybe make a screen capture of what happens? I would love to get to the bottom of this...

    Oh, also, thread-relevant: Subler is awesome! Definitely give it a try! My tool was just made for more container formats that Subler couldn't handle... and it is way less powerful, especially when it comes to metadata and subtitles!

    This is pretty much all I get when trying to use it.

    I've only really needed it once though, not a huge deal, but would be useful.
