I open up MKVextract GUI 22.214.171.124 then load up an MKV that was made with MakeMKV. I select the PGS subtitle.
MKVextract always tells me "MKExtract cannot extract this kind of file"
Anybody been able to extract PGS subtitles from an MKV?

are you burning them to a DVD or are you just trying to get subtitles to play through a PC?

My brother in-law is Deaf and we sometimes watch content on my PC through my TV. I use both Media Player Classic and VLC player.
I use this
I believe you just add the file extension .srt to it, put it in the folder with your media and burn or play it and it should work. I use it frequently.
If you want to send me a PM with exactly what media you are trying to put on there, I may be able to give you more help.

Thing is, the subtitles is in the MKV made by MakeMKV. I need to take the subtitles out of MKV & make a seperate file.

What I do is simply get a subtitle file like a .srt and then set your codec or fav player like MPC-HC to load up that .srt file with the movie and you're all set.

will that work with forced subtitles?

Yes, just get the forced subtitle file instead. I've done this with both 2012 and Disctrict 9. I just have .srt files for the forced subs. I like this route simply because it gives me more flexability in what subtitles I want. And if you want to have general subtitles for all movies you can have them download automatically with MCM when you get your cover art and other metadata.
I know this won't work for everyone but it may for some.
