Full Version: How do I download mono subtitles and embed them in MP4 file?

Excuse my incompetence.

I am trying to embed subtitles in MP4 conversions and also have mono subtitles.

My options file is simple

output F:\Iplayer_Recordings

subsembed 1

subsmono 1

If I record a programme using the Windows PVR manager  > Recording > Download subtitles on,  it doesn't embed the subtitles in the MP4 but the subtitles are in mono when the subtitle file is downloaded.

If I use the command line e.g
get_iplayer --pid=b00vk2lp --subs-embed --subs-mono

That doesn't work either.

So where am I going wrong?  Help appreciated.
