Documenting Problems That Were Difficult To Find The Answer To

Subtitle Codec 94213 is Not Supported in FFmpeg

I was attempting to convert a video file from an Ambarella A7L dashcam to the Matroska (mkv) file format but encountered the following error:

...
    Stream #0:2(eng): Subtitle: mov_text (text / 0x74786574), 0 kb/s (default)
    Metadata:
      creation_time   : 2018-06-01 13:05:26
      handler_name    : Ambarella EXT
...
[matroska @ 0x4754d40] Subtitle codec 94213 is not supported.

In order to retain such subtitle codec (using -c:s copy option) better to use the mp4 file format which will allow this subtitle format.

Or, to retain the subtitle information in the Matroska container, it can be converted to the subrip format using the -c:s srt option.
