    Hey guys,

    I have been trying to add subtitles to .m4v's using Muxo but it doesn't seem to work, I have Muxo and Jubler do I need anything else?

    I most likely would be asking this had there been a decent guide, all I found was a post on the forum saying add subtile and save.

    When I save nothing happens, what am I doing wrong? these are for Apple TV btw so I think this is the right section :D

    First off make sure you are using the last version of muxo. (0.3.6) Second off the subtitle file you are using must be in .srt form. There are various programs around to convert subtitle formats if it is not. Run the subtitle file through Jubler, make sure it is in utf-8 format. Finally open the .m4v file with muxo, click the + sign in the lower left corner, and select add subtitle track. From the window that open select the subtitle track, don't change any of the other settings as they will have no affect, and most likely screw things up. If I remember correctly the audio tracks, and the subtitle track need to be named so from the main window, click on the name field and give a name to each of the audio tracks, and the newly added subtitle track. Finally click save from the file menu, and that should be it. Make sure the files you are trying to work on are actually .mp4/.m4v containers, not other container formats that you have just renamed to .mp4 or .m4v.

    I worked it out a while ago but forgot to say. You need untagged files which I didn't know.
