I've searched around for an answer to this, but I can't seem to find it. Perhaps someone here can help?
I've created several M4V files through Handbrake from a DVD I own, and added them to iTunes. The episodes of the TV show appear OK, but the soft-coded subtitles I selected in Handbrake don't appear as an option when playing the episode on my iPad. But, if I open these same M4V files through VLC Player, the subtitles are there, and can be turned on and off.
If they're in the M4V file, why can't I enable these subtitles on my iPad? :(
