    Please add the option to embed and save the srt subtitles at the same time. The embedded subs are a weird tx3g format that is difficult to extract properly to srt. The reason I'm asking for this, I like to archive my downloads with full embedded subtitles as well as external srt.

    SRT does not go into MP4, there's literally no way to jam that in. AS uses industry standard.

    yes it does. It's called timed text
    Code:
     https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MPEG-4_Part_17
    how else would AS do it with the "embedded" mode? They're not hardcoded in the video

    No it does not, SRT is a format of storing subtitles, MPEG-4 does not support SRT format, instead the subtitles inside MPEG-4 are stored as Timed Text. Don't conflate a way of representing something with the actual something.

    Almost all demuxer can do it easily.
    FFmpeg or MKVToolkit have no problem to extract mp4 Timed Text to SRT, or mux SRT into mp4.

    (I use myFFmpeg what is an interface for FFmpeg)
