    I've been working quite hard recently on trying to understand the conversion process for getting my Blu-Ray and DVD library into iTunes, and I'm nearly there on getting all my settings sorted for a good trade off between quality and file size.

    However, I have two questions remaining that will enable to push ahead with converting the whole library. All of my sources are ripped using MakeMKV.

    1 - Secondary audio tracks. How do I add in another audio track such as a directors commentary into the m4v file?

    2 - How do I insert soft English subtitles? I have the burned in ones sorted using the latest build of HB, but it doesn't seem to let me know include anything else? I don't really want to use a downloaded .srt file, but would rather use the subtitles encoded in my original .mkv file for complete accuracy. I see Subler mentioned a lot, but can't seem to find a good guide to using it for a beginner.

    Any help would be most appreciated! Thanks :)

    You will want to read my posts at (those explain image VobSub vs. textual SRT issues, OCR processes etc.; see #21 and #22) and for more links to my tutorials / posts on HandBrakeBatch - that's the tool you will need to use.
