I am not sure why ffmpeg wants to copy the subtitle stream when its "-f hls" and not when its "-f mpegts".
Also, I am not sure what "[webvtt @ 0x2d83e60] Exactly one WebVTT stream is needed." means.

  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed

Works for example with -sn or -map 0:0 -map 0:1.

Replying to cehoyos:

Works for example with -sn or -map 0:0 -map 0:1.

You are right that it works when using "-map" or "-sn" but that is not the point.
The point is that there seems to be two different "defaults" of which streams ffmpeg is choosing.

I dont know if it is by design that it picks video,audio,subtitle when you are outputting "-f hls" while if you do "-f mpegts" it chooses only video,audio.

Would appreciate if somebody can shed some light into this.

Yes, two different formats (can) have two different defaults.

Alright thanks, I guess this is by design then.

Thank you.
