Does mp4split support embedded 608 subtitles? This piece of documentation seems to suggest that 608/708 subtitles are supported. But when I run the command listed there, mp4split fails to detect a subtitle stream.

vagrant@triforce:/mnt/my/workspaces$ /opt/playready/bin/mp4split -v 4 --package-hls -o subs.m3u8 Tears_w_608.mp4 --track_type=text --track_groupid=captions --track_description="Closed Captions"

ffprobe shows a subtitles track "Stream #0.2(und): Subtitle: c608 / 0x38303663, 0 kb/s". I'm able to play in QuickTime Player 10.4 and select the subtitle track.

Re: 608 subtitles support

I have a few sample ts files that have CEA 608 closed captioning available in them. I know this because when I play it using VLC player for Android, it is able to successfully display the captions. However, VLC player has frame rate issues when rendering the captions which is why I'd like to use Exoplayer. I've hosted the files on a server, and then tried using the demo app to play the files. The demo app doesn't recognise the captions in the file. Tutuapp 9apps Showbox
