Part 2: How to burn MKV video files to DVD with subtitles using Handbrake

  • Step 1: First, search for your preferred subtitles. Make sure that they are in a language that you can understand. If the MKV file has a subtitle already, extract it.
  • Step 2: Save the subtitle file as an SSA file. To do this, you simply need to go to File after the file has been extracted, and then save it with a *.ssa extension. This will create a format of the subtitle that can be used by handbrake to burn it.
  • Step 3: Go back to the MKV video and remux it with SSA instead of SRT so that it can be seen by Handbrake. To do this, use MKVMerge. Open MKVMerge and then click the Add button in order to locate the MKV video file.
  • Step 4: Once the MKV video file has been opened, you should be able to see the individual video, audio streams, as well as the subtitle. Uncheck the SRT subtitle file that your MKV video contains currently.
  • Step 5: Click Add while making sure that the *.ssa file is selected. Once that is done, you should be able to see the video file in the input files list and the chapters, tracks and tags list.
  • Step 6: Provide an output file name and then click “Start muxing”. The MKV video file will be remuxed with the *.ssa file.
  • Step 7: Once that is done, go ahead and burn the subtitles in the video using Handbrake. Open Handbrake, and then go to Open, and choose File.
  • Step 8: Choose the new MKV file, and then apply the filter of your choice.
  • Step 9: Go to the subtitle tab and then click Add.
