I'm trying to convert a ton of ISOs, all DVD, to MKV for broader compatibility with servers and players. I'm using DVDFab DVD Ripper module. All goes well until I stream them to Dune or Sony BDP. Doing normal English subs remuxed in does give me the ability to turn subs on or off, but they are persistent. That is, the last subtitle text remains on screen until the next dialog.
The only way that seems to work is using forced, normal and forced both:
I then get two streams. One works, the other shows no subs. Both are named VOBSUB EN.
I could go with this, but I'm afraid something isn't standard and I'll run into unpredicted issues later.
So far DVDFab support says this is typically a player issue. That may be true as the normal subs work properly played in VLC on Windows. But two different hardware players, one a mainstream consumer Sony BDP, having problems? Doesn't seem right to me.
Anyone have ideas about what is going on here and how to make proper MKV files with no loss from the source, and with subs that turn on or off?
I tried MakeMKV, but the results have broken up video, even played on my computer.
