Looking for a way to join subtitles from individual episodes joined into one show

Generally mpg CC are stored either as user data in the video stream or as teletext streams for DVB broadcast. VRD will handle these without issue. MP4 files usually use timed text captions which is a feature we are working on.
Hmm, MediaInfo on my .mp4 CC files shows...
----------------------------------------------------
Text
ID : 1-CC1
Format : EIA-608
Muxing mode : SCTE 128 / DTVCC Transport
Muxing mode, more info : Muxed in Video #1
Duration : 5 min 48 s
Bit rate mode : Constant
Stream size : 0.00 Byte (0%)
CaptionServiceName : CC1
--------------------------------------------------------

Of course all the CC.mp4 files I deal with are the ones I created from my Dvd_CC.mpg files.
Oh, VLC sees the CC, MPClassic does not see any subtitles.

So guess it's apples vs oranges here.

I'm assuming that the problem files are from a "Streaming" source.
Have never run into "txet" or "Timed Text" issues.

@jmc, There are user data captions stored in the video stream. Most hardware MP4 players prefer captions stored as timed text.

Where could I get "timed text" mp4s? Or create one to test my LG OLED tv with?

thanks,

If I need to split or combine subs, I just demux them out to .srt, load them into SubtitleEdit.exe (freeware and regularly updated) Can mark any line or group and set any advance or delay of sync for only that segment. Really good for adjusting subs after removal of edits or adverts.
Can usually do the whole job in the time it took to read all of this thread.
