Preserve dvb_subtitles when transcoding

Jakub Vojáček
Hello,

I am having problem recording dvb_subtitles from a live stream into a mp4
file. I have a live stream that has dvb_teletext in it, ffprobe looks like:

Input #0, mpegts, from 'udp://@239.100.200.2:1234':
  Duration: N/A, start: 7822.640600, bitrate: N/A
  Program 1
    Metadata:
      service_name    : Service01
      service_provider: FFmpeg
    Stream #0:0[0x100]: Video: h264 (Main) ([27][0][0][0] / 0x001B),
yuv420p(progressive), 720x480 [SAR 40:33 DAR 20:11], 25 fps, 25 tbr, 90k
tbn, 50 tbc
    Stream #0:1[0x101]: Video: h264 (Main) ([27][0][0][0] / 0x001B),
yuv420p(progressive), 720x480 [SAR 40:33 DAR 20:11], 25 fps, 25 tbr, 90k
tbn, 50 tbc
    Stream #0:2[0x102](cze): Audio: aac (LC) ([15][0][0][0] / 0x000F),
48000 Hz, stereo, fltp, 127 kb/s
    Stream #0:3[0x103](cze): Subtitle: dvb_teletext ([6][0][0][0] /
0x0006), 492x250

I am trying to capture a part of this stream into a mp4 while preserving
dvb_teletext (since I am extracting subtitles from it afterwards) as well
as change the bitrate etc. The command I am using is

ffmpeg -y -fix_sub_duration -i "udp://@239.100.200.2:1234" -map 0 -copyinkf
-codec copy -t 20 -f mp4 output.mp4

which does work but the dvb_subtitles are somehow damaged and not usable,
ffprobe on the output.mp4 file shows

Unsupported codec with id 0 for input stream 3

The subtitles inside this mp4 file are not usable. What I also tried was to
change the codec of the subtitles to mov_text using

ffmpeg -y -txt_format text -txt_page 888 -fix_sub_duration -i "udp://@
239.100.200.2:1234" -map 0 -copyinkf -scodec mov_text -vcodec copy -acodec
copy -t 10 -f mp4 output.mp4

which does work slighly better. Subtitles are preserverd but their encoding
is not correct. When the subtitles are extracted or the file is played in
VLC, the subtitles are showing badly encoded characters (for example "-Döti
vzkazujÜ, Öe o nö rodiny" instead of "-Děti vzkazují, že ně rodiny")

How can the subtitles be preserved, is there something wrong with the
ffmpeg command?

For the sake of testing, I have recorded a 100 second sample of this stream
using multicat, available to download here https://goo.gl/zGpHRA. The file
seems to containt dvb_subtitles as well, according to ffprobe

You can test mine 2 ffmpeg commands on this sample and you should observe
same issues. Can you please help me figure out what I am doing wrong?

I am using ffmpeg 4.0 configuration: --cpu=native --enable-pthreads
