Re: New Feature - MakeMKV now extracts closed captions and saves them as text subtitles

In all these years I've been using MakeMKV I've seen Closed Captions maybe a couple of times. Talk about priorities ;)

Re: Weird subtitle problem - Black Panther UHD

As the matrix shows, Kodi is consistent over platforms so that's no Android issue. Also, VLC behaves identically: with no flag set the subs are NOT shown automatically. I'd have to check which muxing tools set the first subs to default yes...

Re: Weird subtitle problem - Black Panther UHD

Which is not exactly true if you do remember my PGS playback matrix from the "Forced Subs... Again"-thread which clearly shows that it does, respecting the flags even.

My LG OLED was capable of displaying subtitles via the native player at one point.
Text-based or bitmap-based?

Re: Simple way with GUI to Re-encode from VC-1 to h264, h65 or anything "Plexable"?

I can't put it any other way: with hardware players capable of playing this content there's NO NEED for conversion. You would simply playback the files from your NAS.

Re: Simple way with GUI to Re-encode from VC-1 to h264, h65 or anything "Plexable"?

I'd rather invest in cheap media players that can handle VC-1 instead of wasting time and energy on conversion. Plex would then simply deliver the content without on the fly encoding and you can watch the original rips.

Re: Forced Subs... Again

kodi does not play them without selecting them first As you can see from my table above, Kodi DOES play them without selecting them first if you play back from MKV. Ripping an entire disc including menu is something entirely different and I actually never saw the point of doing it. the one I replac...

Re: Forced Subs... Again

I need a way to identify the right subs tracks for none English like alien or foreign language in films. Actually, what you need to do is to read what's been said on this subject already. For the umpteenth time: there is NO WAY to identify the subs automatically, it has to be done manually. You can...

Well... have you tried it? If not, here's some subs with various flags as well as forced items: mega.**/fm/nGBzUIgI/fs+.rar Copy the line to your browser's address bar and add the protocol in front of it and replace the asterisks with the top level domain, then press enter.

Re: forced subtitles

The only problem I have now is that my TV (Panasonic GT50) plays mkv's just fine from my media server (from a NAS), but it never shows subtitles without explicit user selection of the desired title. Is it like this also with the forced sub muxed as first track and flagged properly (default + forced...

Re: Forced Subs... Again

Kodi's subtitle settings are set in the OSD. If set to off, it should still display PGS subs flagged as forced. I know it did on my system but I can't remember if it was on Android, LibreElec, Raspi. Gonna have to check and report back...

So... why not report this on the VLC forums where something can be done about it?

Re: forced subtitles

On the one hand you say it's simply the standard structure inside a folder with a .dvdmedia extension, on the other hand you say VLC can't play the subs. That doesn't add up. You could try re-authoring with DVD Shrink but if you want ro remux anyway, you most likely will have to manually set the fla...

Re: forced subtitles

It would be no trouble if the disc authors would bother to author their streams properly which they don't. And there's also no reason to blame Makemkv for not being able to handle proprietary dvdformat Apple somehow felt the need to cook up rather than going with ISOs or something.
