I've been testing my H264 conversion script, and come across a problem with the VDR 1.6 subtitles
VDR 1.6 (.vdr) recordings The subtitle stream is reported by VLC as type "subtitle", "codec: DVD subtitles (spu)" ffmpeg reports "Stream #0:2[0x20]: Subtitle: dvd_subtitle" For reasons unknown, subtitles do not show on VLC (although you can select the subs track), Kodi, mplayer and ffplay VDR 2.20 + VOMP 0.4.1 shows subtitles CORRECTLY, so they exist in the stream. VDR 2.20 (.ts) recordings ffmpeg reports "Stream #0:3[0x131](eng): Subtitle: dvb_subtitle ( / 0x0006)" Subtitles show on VLC, ffplay and VDR 2.20 + Kodi (using VNSI) Subtitles do not show on VDR 2.20 + VOMP 0.4.1 ffmpeg reports no subtitle data when transcoding / copying the VDR 1.6 streams, even when forcing the codec to "dvb_subtitle" Obviously if possible I would like to retain the subtitle data when transcodingaround 8 years of recordings. Could someone please confirm : a) Is there an issue with VOMP on VDR 2.20 re: subtitles and old VDR 1.6 recordings ? b) Is there a Linux or windows video player that shows subtitles in VDR 1.6 (.vdr) recordings ? c) Is there a magic switch in FFMPEG or other tool to recognise / transcode / export the "DVD subtitles" ? Or another program ? If all else fails, I assume it's possible to extract the data using functions in old VDR 1.6 code, but that might be a bit involved... Thanks !
