How do you plan to play this new disc? It depends on what your player will support.
For maximum compatibility, you should burn a new BD-format disc. ClownBD can extract one movie into a new disc like this.
I haven't seen one like that. After MakeMKV ripping... there is a normal full English Sub track, but I'm also seeing a separate Sub Track for Forced. There is very little in it, but appears on screen when it's suppose to:
A few I remember off-hand are:
Avatar - In this case it's the second English one (test in first lab meeting)
Rise_Planet_of_the_Apes - Last one (test apes talking in cages and habitat)
Mission Impossible 4 - See that there is 4 English Subtitles, and the 3rd one is the Forced one. They are talking in Russian (HQ and hospital),
Well, DVDFab Blu-Ray Copy keeps on top of latest decryption tech. and I have Lifetime subscription. I kinda like having decryption and ripping/manipulation in separate steps.
I don't do anything special in MakeMKV. The MKVmergeGUI part takes only a few minutes.
This is my WorkFlow. If you don't like it, you can do it whatever way you want.
Yes, I've noticed he uses that term "Forced" but since it's on all of them ... I guess it means something else. Never really had a chance to ask him.
What would be cool ... if MakeMKV could somehow select the proper Sub-Track as Truely Forced (maybe the one with the least words in it or something) like I do with MKVMergeGUI. I might actually pay for that feature.
You must be able to see into Avatar structure in some other way to know it's different.
In relation to my other post about MakeMKV ... I suppose that's what he means by labeling all the SubTitle tracks as "Forced". Meaning they will be separated (whether they are already or not) and be available to be "Forced" or played manually after the movie starts.
However, my definition of "Forced SubTitles" is a little different (maybe I'm incorrectly using the term). I thought it was when a SubTrack is automatically used (no user intervention) everytime the file is played (even if you have SubTitles turned off as default in the player). That's what I've been shooting for and modifying my MKV files to do (I'm using XBMC to play them).
I've posted this before further back in the thread ...
Relevant part of notes for Mission Impossible 4 BD:
They are talking in Russian (HQ and hospital), so I need Forced Subs
Play in VLC. See that there is 4 English Subtitles, and the 3rd one is the Forced one.
Tried new way:
Select File -> Header Editor
In Header Editor, select File -> Open
Select your MKV file.
You'll now see the list of tracks. Open the subtitle track you want to be forced.
- Notice there are also 4, but numbered 4,6,9,10. The third one (or #9) must be the right one
Click on "Forced Display" Flag.
In right window, check "Add Element", and then set Current Value to "yes".
Select File -> Save
In right window, Current Value to "yes".
Select File -> Save
Only takes a few seconds
You can exit MKVMergeGUI, restart, and re-load header. See that Yes is saved.
You can also load (add) file to main MKVMergeGUI section
- Select the 3rd (of 4) Subtitles (S_HDMV/PGS), General Tab, see Forced track flag is set to Yes.
