, in the advanced section. I put "eng:eng|f;eng:off;*:eng" in, which translates to "if english audio, then forced english subs; if english audio, then no subs; if any other language of audio, then english subs", so that should have you covered mostly.
So I removed everything, even the directories, and did a re-install with all of the latest versions yesterday. I am now able to properly get embedded forced subtitles to play in MPC-HC! It still doesn't turn them on by default, but hitting the button to cycle between them does actually work now so if I notice I'm missing them in some random movie, I can turn it on. I tried to change it to be forced only, but then nothing came up. So I'll stick with the "Advanced" method with the string you have above. Still, it's a start!
Another question. Is it necessary to list all of the refresh rates your display supports in MadVR? I never configured this before, but after setting it up, my display definitely cycles refresh rates for a few seconds when starting a video. Is this normal with this feature?
By the way I also set up XMBC (To test for subtitles) which worked perfectly, though the video quality isn't quite up to par with MPC-HC, at least it worked with everything out of the box, which was kind of cool. I tried to set up MPC-HC as an external player using the latest stable Frodo version, and at least with the current build, there is a major issue with sound cycling. Basically what it does it when it launches MPC-HC, it comtinuously repeats the "Select" sound from XMBC. The workaround is to remove the sound in the XML file altogether so that no selections make any sounds. Wish I didn't have to do that though. I love the built-in trailer options and the Aeon Nox skin though. It's a ton less work than Media Browser / Media Center Master and looks nicer IMO.Edited by damelon - 6/19/13 at 12:49pm
