    http://www.ffmpeg.org/libavfilter.html#ass Draw ASS (Advanced Substation Alpha) subtitles on top of input video using the libass library.

    To enable compilation of this filter you need to configure FFmpeg with --enable-libass. This filter accepts in input the name of the ass file to render. For example, to render the file ‘sub.ass’ on top of the input video, use the command: ass=sub.ass

    Not tested

    With Sintel mkv, you can also extract srt and transcode to ass then remux video and sub:

    ffmpeg.exe -i Sintel.2010.720p.mkv -y -map 0:5 -scodec ass Sintelfr.ass

    ffmpeg.exe -i Sintel.2010.720p.mkv -q:a 0 -q:v 0 -vf "ass=Sintelfr.ass" outfrremux.avi

    From an external srt file: sintel_fr.srt (first line in srt should be removed)

    ffmpeg.exe -i sintel_fr.srt -y -scodec ass sintel_fr_out.ass

    ffmpeg.exe -i Sintel.2010.720p.mkv -q:a 0 -q:v 0 -vf "ass=sintel_fr_out.ass" OUT.avi

    Hello, I got a Samsung E series TV that doesn't support ASS subtitle format. When trying to Watch .MKV with embedded ASS nothing shows up using Serviio. This is why we need on-the-fly ASS to SRT Convert done by Serviio for transcode.

    Best Luck for coding it.
