Does anyone know how to do this? I have a file that plays but it has english subtitles and I want to remove them. Is there a file that can be removed to do this?

Why do you need to remove them? Just don't show them.

I would love to do that but when I open the file in vlc they are on by default. Is there an option in vlc to turn them off?

I have never had that experience. But, in VLC, go in the Video menu and the last item is subtitles track. You can try to turn them off there.

So the subtitles of MKV are not embedded in the movie? thay can be turned on & off.

MkvMerge can. It's part of the MKVToolnix package: http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix/

Another reasons for wanting to remove the subtitles would be if you wanted to burn a DVD of the mkv file in Toast -- if you don't remove the subtitle track with MKV Tools, Toast burns them into the file and they can't be disabled.

I'm using MeGUI to overlay my subtitles on mkv videos (that also have embedded default subtitles).

 

I read the video source with DirectShowSource command, then TextSub my srt file on the video.

The problem is that the output video has two subtitles, mine over the default one.

 

Is there a command to ignore the default embedded subtitles that can be used for Avisynth scripts?
