Combining video and subtitle files as one video

subtitlesvideo editing

I have a video file (in the format of .mp4, .mkv, .avi or whatever) and a subtitle file (.srt). I want to embed the subtitle file into the video file so that I have only one file – the video file in contrast to the video and the subtitle file.

Is it possible? How?

MKVtoolnix is another easy to use option since you already have the files you want. You can combine them into an MKV container without altering the originals in anyway. It has a nice GUI to guide you through the combination process as well.

I see user1301428 had mentioned Handbrake, which is also a very common/popular tool. I'm not as familiar with it, but if it doesn't re-encode your source AVI then it should be great.
