MKV can do everything. It's by design infinitely extensible, you just have to define the streams and other files in XMLish file inside and pray your player knows what to do with it.

MPEG-4 AVC has a defined subtitle format. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MPEG-4_Part_17

WebM on the other hand does not currently. And the hardware currently being created for it will probably ignore subtitles when they are added to the spec.

There is no need for WebM to define any specific subtitle format. What would the point be anyway, subtitle stream has nothing to do with video codec whatsoever.

And the hardware currently being created for it will probably ignore subtitles when they are added to the spec.


None of the current hardware renders subtitles. Subtitle rendering is done all in software, including H.264. Again, subtitles have nothing to do with the video stream.
