Try with avidemux 2.6.18, found here:
If you are using Video Output [Copy] setting, subtitle filter can't work.
In subtitle filter, load the srt filter.
You should be asked
This is a srt file. Convert to SSA ?
Reply [Yes]
It should now be showing in the right column (Active Filters)
Click [Preview] Right hand bottom.
Move slider forward to 3 seconds with the provided sample srt file attached to this posting.

In the main GUI mark [v] Play filtered. subtitles should be showing when video is played.
when this all works, you can save video with MP4 Muxer, subtitles should be in the saved video
