  • Forced Subtitles

    I have noticed for a while now that when making a BD movie only backup (Blu-ray Copy mode) , forced subtitles (translation subtitles) do not automatically turn on when a translation should be displayed, and usually have to be turned on manually. When viewing the movies form the original discs, these subtitles are usually displayed automatically as needed. I always copy all of the English subtitles, even when only when audio track is copied, so its present on the backup, just never turns on automatically.

    Is there a setting in DVDFab to recognize forced subtitles so they can be set to be turned on by default? I know you can have a subtitle automatically display by selecting a specific subtitle track by turning on the right arrow next to it on the left, but how can you tell whether or not any of those is a forced translation subtitle. I do this by trial and error now. When I used to backup DVDs in the days of past, forced subtitles would always automatically display in the backup, but not on blue-ray. Am I missing a setting or is this a feature that could be requested?

    Thank you.

    Normally, the forced subtitles should display automatically no matter subtitle ON or OFF.

    In your case of "never turns on automatically", did you check the original movie disc, how did it playback the forced subtitles?
    What is the name and version of the movie? Do you get this problem with different movies?

    Please offer more details and log files. Thanks.

      It was not something recent so will have to go back through collection and find some examples, and was asking because it came to mind the other day. I just remember there have been several movies in the past where a foreign language is being spoken in certain scenes and no subtitle appears . I rewind a few seconds, then turn on the alternate English subtitle (usually its the 2nd English subtitle track) and then the translation appears. Since this was not something that happened very recently, I don't have the logs so will have to go through the copy process again once I can remember the specific titles to generate logs. Just didn't know whether or not there was a setting in DVDFab I should set or not, but I guess from your answer there is not.

        If you go to common settings there is a setting to always display forced subtitle automatically.

        I also learned this the hard way

          The only setting I see regarding subtitles n Common Settings is under Conversion where you have the option to "Always display only forced subtitle" but I don't believe that has any affect on Blu-ray Copy mode, but will make sure its selected anyway. Thanks.

            You are right, this option to "Always display only forced subtitle" makes no affect on Blu-ray Copy, it is specially for Ripper's conversion process.
