Peter, have you ever tried and succeeded at getting all ATSC
subtitles/closed captioning copied during transcoding?  I have several
movies with English and Spanish subtitles that I want to preserve.
I've yet to find a way to do that with either handbrake or ffmpeg.  I
either get no subtitles or I get garbled, unintelligible subtitles.
