How to extract subtitles from blue ray or iso file?
I've looked into ripping Blu Ray and met so many problems. Clearly I am out dated and old. This I can't really figure out it seems.
I've tried to use anydvd to make an iso, but then realized when rip was completed a 25 ish GB iso file is too large. On the bright side anydvd did not run into any problems with encryption etc. And vlc was able to show movie with subtitles.
So next step was shrinking file size in handbrake. Worked like a charm, or so I believed until I sat down to watch a movie. During the encoding and transforming it into a mkv file using handbrake I did loose the subtitle.
1: As I already have done a bunch of iso files and handbrake converted mkv files and do not wanna start all over again I wonder if I can somehow extract the subtitles from the iso file (iso files still in my temp folder) or from the blu ray disc if I insert the disc into the bd drive? That way I could just dump the subtitle file into the same folder as the mkv file.
2: What format is the most common for subtitles and what should I aim for? I kind of like SRT as that is a clear text file where I easily can do a visual check to see if extract was correct.
3: What tools are suited to extract subtitles from iso files or blu ray discs? I don't mind paying if a tool is great and actually work.
On some discs a program named Subtitle Edit works other not at all. I've tried also ease fab lossless copy, but that one only gives out eror msg.
What tool will let me extract only the subtitle from iso image or blu ray disc? If you know a tool that can extract subtitles from iso files or blu ray discs this and that tool has high success rate it is ok if it is a paid option. But I prefer to test out a trail version before paying to make sure it does what I need it to do.
