subtitles hdmv pgs won't appear

Hello! It seems that the subtitle format hdmv pgs is either not converted by MakeMKV, or my BluRay player Samsung HT-F5550 cannot play it. A technician from Samsung stated that my BluRay player can play subtitles in the following formats: ssa (substation alpha) asa (advanced substation alpha) subtil...

Re: BD subtitles (bdpg)

A technician from Samsung stated that my BluRay player HT-F5550 can play subtitles in the following formats:

ssa (substation alpha)
asa (advanced substation alpha)
subtil
vobsub

Can someone recommend a tool for Mac to convert subtitles into one of the formats listed above?

Best, Dietmar

Re: BD subtitles (bdpg)

I understand :-) But ... ;-) the file created with MakeMKV contains 2 subtitle streams with codec bdpg . The file created from this with Subler contains 1 subtitle stream with codec tx3g . This one is a normal subtitle track (at least I suppose) wich only contains the forced subtitles! I can switch ...

Re: BD subtitles (bdpg)

The name "Subler" comes up a lot on other forums. I tried Subler and it works :-) - but only for my Mac, not for my BluRay player. I want to see the forced subtitles from "Game of Thrones" when the actors talk in a foreign language. From the *.mkv I created a *.m4v video with Subler (with "Forced" ...

You can use *.srt but then you will lose any formatations
This program only runs on Windows. Is there something similar/recommendable for Mac OS X?

BD subtitles (bdpg)

When I playback a file created by MakeMKV with VLC and have the information about the streams displayed, VLC says there are three subtitle streams in the file, their type is "BD subtitles (bdpg)". When I playback the same file with my BD player (Samsung HT-F5550) the player says "There are no subtit...

Re: Missing subtitles

Are you working with Bluray disk as the source? If so, is your player compatible with PGS subtitles in an MKV container? BD uses a different format for subtitles than DVD. Not all players support this format, and some that do have problems when PGS is found in an MKV file. VLC is known to support i...

Missing subtitles

I am using MakeMKV 1.8.9 for Mac. I've been using German subtitles for a long time. Since some months the selected subtitles can be selected in the MKV-player-app, but no subtitles do appear. If I for example select German and English subtitles, both in 2 versions, I have 4 elements in the popup men...

Automatic selection of audio tracks and subtitles

Hi! For each DVD I convert with MKV I go through the same process: When there is a German audio track (my mother tongue) I select it. Otherwise I select the English audio track (often the only available track for bonus material). Additionally, I select all German subtitles. I suggest a preference li...
