You generally don't want to. The issue is that sub/idx is a graphic format, and srt is a text format. To convert requires optical character recognition (OCR) which is slow and error prone.

Instead, I suggest using a tool like Handbrake to convert the video to mkv, then use the mkvmerge GUI to add the sub/idx to the mkv as a selectable channel during playback.
