Here’s a question for the codeheads out there who have dipped into the hexadecimal soup that is the .IFO file.
I’m on a Mac, or rather in front of one, and don’t have nifty programs like IFOEDIT available. That hasn’t stopped me from tweaking a few things within the IFO file on my MOVIE ONLY copies.
Some disks never got the correct language-track settings at the factory. When I do a MOVIE ONLY copy, I of course remove the menus for choosing a particular audio or subtitle stream.
I’ve used a hex editor and plopped in the correct language codes for audio and subtitles, and when necessary added the “director’s commentary” code as well. This page (http://www.mpucoder.com/dvd/) was useful to figure out that part; as well as this table of the ISO 639-1 codes (http://www.geo-guide.de/info/tools/languagecode.html).
My question is this: is there a place where I can set a particular subtitle track to automatically come on? I have a fair number of foreign-language DVDs – one of the reasons I love DVD2OneX is because it handles subtitles.
Could this be a possible new feature for future releases of DVD2One?
