Both, actually. After I rip it to my hard disc I preview it using VLC media player to see if it plays correctly. The last few releases of DVDFab has the subtitles come on automatically when VLC would not do that in the past.
Then when I burn them to onto a blank DVD and play them in my nice Samsung DVD player the subtitles are on automatically. This never occurred in prior versions of DVDFab using the same setup. Only started in December or thereabouts.
Thanks again for your support and help but I can't help thinking that the authors of the software changed an internal default setting for those of us that use the "customize" setting to rip to the hard disk and then burn.
Can you confirm that using Customize and then previewing with VLC that subtitles don't automatically come on?
