Re: Botched subtitles when ripping Avatar

Like I said, I've check the entired subtitle track for this and on my BD there isn't an item like this. You could still upload your demuxed subs so we can have a look.

Re: Botched subtitles when ripping Avatar

The German version has no SDH subs in either track and as I've just confirmed with the scenes you provided there's also no 'speaking na'vi' before what's actually being said.

Re: Laputa - No usabel subtitles found in the MKV result file

You could set up Win 10 in a Virtualbox machine and install it there. Microsoft's Media Creation Tool lets you download an ISO to install from and as long as you don't activate you can use it freely.

Re: Botched subtitles when ripping Avatar

but there are a couple spots where just before the subtitles appear it prints "Speaking in Navi:" and the font changes to something different and appears in a different location. Had to dig out my German Avatar BD which contains Theatrical Version, Extended Theatrical Version and Extended Collector...

Re: Planet of the Apes Trilogy Subtitle Issues

Actually, you can simply play back the movie in VLC and cycle through the tracks. If you don't see subs when someone is talking you most likely already have found the forced sub. Just skip to the singing scene and verify this. Once you've converted the movie to MakeMKV you can use MKVToolnix's heade...

Re: forced subtitle not present

Like Woodstock's been over in countless threads, there's basically 2 ways to have forced subtitles on BDs and DVDs: - a separate track with only the forced items (which are not flagged as such) - one track with all items, some of which are flagged as forced Since the MKV standard does not allow for ...

You can get details for MKVs with Mediainfo, just switch to text output and post it here.

Re: forced subtitle not present

Yes, that's what I've meant. The 2 minutes clip you provided was enough to determine that the only German subtitle track inside the VOB in fact DOES contain forced items. Apparently MakeMKV does not check for flags in DVDs (I don't think I have ever ripped a DVD with it) so you need to do this manua...

Re: forced subtitle not present

You could use DVD Shrink to rip a short clip where Chinese is spoken with all tracks and upload this so people can have a look.

Re: MKV will play with VLC, not on TV, others do.

You're probably better off getting a cheap Android media player or a Raspi 4 than wasting time and energy on conversion (if space is not the issue).

-sel:all,+sel:(deu|eng|nolang),-sel:(core),-10:(forced*(eng)),-15:(deu),-20:(forced*(deu))

Re: Forced Subtitles

But it is there. When I look at The Sopranos in MakeMKV there are two English tracks, and one is marked as forced. On the resulting MKV there are two English tracks, and neither is marked as forced. Setting setFirstForcedSubtitleTrackAsDefault="true" in the preferences file should make the track pl...
