I've search and i can't find the answer.

I've been using HandBrake to rip my DVD's into .mkv files and play them via Windows Media Center.

Is there a way to add subtitles using handbrake to an .mkv file so they can be turned ON and OFF in Windows Media Center?

There is a section in HandBrake that lets you add subtitles to the .mkv file but every option I try doesn't show a way to turn them ON or OFF when paying in Windows Media Center after it has been ripped.

Any idea?

It sounds like you're using an old version of Handbrake. The latest version (0.9.4) allows for "soft" subtitles. Under the subtitles tab, select the track(s) you want and make sure the "burned in" box is not checked. I can verify that the feature works great with both SUB/IDX (DVD format) and SRT subtitles.


Getting MKV soft subs to work in WMC is another can of worms entirely, and not one I can help you with.
