    Would it be possible to add the option to burn in any forced subtitles selected.
    I have embedded the forced selection, but playing with the "Films and TV player" built into Windows 10 you cannot select an embedded subtitle track.

    No, as that would require video encoding. That's beyond the scope of Anystream. It's a downloader, not an encoder.

    Thanks for the reply Ch3vr0n.
    Does anyone have a suggestion as to which app I can use to do this then please...
    I have tried HandBrake but that doesn't seem to do it.

    Any video encoder tool should be able to do it.

    I do this with HandBrake all the time, with many videos downloaded via AS. It works fine. You could also try ffmpeg, but it's not as easy to use.

    When I try with HandBrake, I just get a blank video but with sound !
    It is also VERY slow at producing the file, but without showing any progress on HandBrake's window.
    This is using the downloaded file from AnyStream with the sub embedded.

    You might try inspecting the scan and encoding logs to see if they indicate any errors. Or try a different preset, or remuxing the file first. Only guessing...
