[QUOTE=bolters;2194646]Thanks for your reply O’Canada,
I have download a program called SubResync, if I add the subtitles (IDX/SUB) file that DVDFab created into it, it tells me that there is forced subtitles in there. I thought, that by ticking the ‘Display only forced subpicture’ button I would only get the forced subs from the subpicture stream I picked. But I end up getting the entire subs from that stream. What is the ‘Display only forced subpicture’ button supposed to do? to me it looks like it does nothing. Looking in the IDX file that it creates, it says that you change the word OFF to ON to display only forced subs, but that doesn’t seem to work either. Great program if that button was to work the way I thought it.
I found my copy of The Hunt For Red October, and have checked it out.
You won’t like my answer, however.
‘The Hunt’ had 3 substreams listed: 1.) English, 2.) Spanish, 3.) Undefined.
Undefined turned out to be the French subtitles, all of which display throughout the film.
The short answer is that what you want to do can’t be done.
There is either another mechanism at work, or there is something in the DVD specs that allow this to be done, and it’s not being checked for by any copying program I have. They all report the normal audio, video and subtitle substreams, but to pick off this option requires something extra to be found and reported and utilized by the copying program.
Maybe a good candidate for the ‘Added Features’ list?!!?
