How do I remove internal subtitles in ConvertxtoDVD?

I have a PAL video that i convert to NTSC in convertxtodvd.

Everytime, it burns the subtitles onto the DVD so they are always on the screen. Is there a way to remove them all together? Or at least so the subtitle button will turn them off?

I should mention that the subtitles are INTERNAL.

Thank you.

Hello and welcome to the forum,

When you watche the original on your computer are the subs there? Can you remove them there?

You might want to post you log file here for better help.

Hi there,

You can have Internal Subtitles (Like a commercial DVD) or someone hard coded the subtitles in the video itself, which it not considered an internal subtitle, since it’s part of the video.

If it’s part of the video, you can’t remove them.

If they are internal subs, (Like a commercial DVD), just turn them off with your DVD Player remote.

The Original DVD does not have subtitles on it unless you turn them on. For some reason, when they’re converted to NTSC convertxtoDVD. The subtitles are there and you cannot turn them off with the subtitle button on the remote. Here’s the log. And thank you in advance!
