Can I re-rip just the subtitle stream and somehow add that into my existing MKV of the movie, or do I need to re-rip?
This is an issue with forced subs. As long as you ripped the subs there's a quick and easy fix:
Download and install MKVMerge.
Under the file menu, open the Header Editor
Drag your MKV file into the Header Editor Window
You should see all the audio and sub streams listed.
Select the stream you want to make sure plays, and set the forced and default options to ON.
Save, takes a few seconds to save the changes to the file
I use this with foreign films as well, I just set the default eng subs and the default lang for the movie to default and on.
End result is that XBMC, the Dune players with the forced sub patch, and the PCH players will show the sub track you set as default with the players sub settings defaulted to off. WAF was very high with this one.
