Only pick the 'Forced' subtitle of the language you want to read 'foreign' subtitles in. There may be multiples.
Why? If there's a single stream with forced subs where none are flagged (like on prett all disks I rip) the resulting stream will come up empty, right?

BDInfo might help with that.

Re: Subtitles won't display with Serviio -> Sony

DLNA sucks and some TVs cannot play back bitmap-based subs over it. You shoul rip an 1 minute clip with MKVToolnix and try various subtitle formats (Vobsub, SRT, internal/external) to see if that makes a difference.

Re: Subtitle and audio track naming

I do this why working and when 5 or so disks are on the HDD, I rip them with MakeMKV in a row unattended.

Re: Subtitle and audio track naming

D'uh. Forgot to mention I copy the entire disks to HDD before ripping them. So when I playback the m2ts it's already been decrypted by MakMKV.

Re: Subtitle and audio track naming

You can determine them by playing the largest m2ts from the BD in VLC and see what stream numbers are the ones you need. That's of course manual work too.

Re: Subtitle and audio track naming

Since I'm always using the same order

forced
regular
director's comment (if available)

I don't bother to name them at all, same goes for audio.

Re: How can I determine correct subtitle tracks?

In 2019 I'm still using VLC to play the largest m2ts on the BD and check the subs manually. Usually I spot the SDH track pretty soon but there's still no way to do this automatically.

Re: Subtitle process (MakeMKV and Handbrake for Blu-ray)

Dang, I got none of these BDs. What you could do is demux one or two of the sub tracks with TSMuxer and upload them so people can check it with BDSUP2SUB.

Re: Subtitle process (MakeMKV and Handbrake for Blu-ray)

Would be interesting to know which BDs you had success with so people can verify. Maybe discs for different regions are in fact authored differently.

Re: Subtitle process (MakeMKV and Handbrake for Blu-ray)

I've also found that MakeMKV is good at picking out the needed subtitles when people speak a different language. Which is the opposite of pretty much everyone else's experience here. Since almost none of the subs are actually flagged as forced, MakeMKV can not recognize them automatically (unless M...

Re: Blurays and subtitles

I'm also pretty sure nothing has changed with MakeMKV in the last 2-3 years that would affect subtitles. I don't see any issues with delays either.
