    Hey guys.

    I have a file that is .avi but has subtitles (.srt) and what I would like to do is delete the .srt file, however if I do so, then I lose the subtitles for the file. So I have been doing some research, and i know that MKV has a container file for subtitles, but I have no freaking clue how to go about this.

    What is best;

    • Embed the .srt into .avi (staying with the same format)
    • Convert to .MKV (where the subtitle is contained within the format .mkv)

    FYI, I have been using the latest version of Handbrake to convert tons of .avi + .srt files into .mp4 files. Very easy and quite fast :D
