What you need to do is to put the video, audio and subtitles into a fitting 
container format. You can find an overview of different container formats here: 


As you can see does .mpeg not support subtitles. To see which formats ffmpeg 
supports enter "ffmpeg -formats". To pick a specific one do you use the -f 
option. Otherwise will ffmpeg guess the format from the file extension, which 
may not what you want. An example: 

ffmpeg ... -f mpegts -y output.mpeg 

This will use the MPEG transport stream format and name the file "output.mpeg".
