You can burn subtitles with one of two filters: subtitles or ass.
As of Nov 29, 2012 you can also simply use the subtitles filter:
ffmpeg -i video.avi -vf subtitles=subtitle.srt out.avi
This filter requires ffmpeg to be compiled with --enable-libass (if you are building FFmpeg yourself, look for the libass-dev package on Debian-like distributions).
ffmpeg -i video.avi -vf "ass=subtitle.ass" out.avi
As with the subtitles filter, this filter requires ffmpeg to be compiled with --enable-libass.
If your subtitle is in SubRip, MicroDVD or any other supported text subtitles, you have to convert it to ASS before using the filter:
ffmpeg -i subtitle.srt subtitle.ass
For Windows users this link may be useful, as you have to setup font paths just right to get libass to work
