Re: Forced pgs subs inside an mkv

Hello,

First post here discusses movies and different implementations of subtitles, separate files, hardcoded, or in my case discs with forced flags in the subtitle stream, you can click the link posted to googledocs.

It is a lengthy list.

MPC-HC, Kodi for windows, mpv or plex media player (all windows based however) were able to do this when I watched on an htpc.

This is an older thread but post 10 also discusses how this works in mpc-hc

These applications were all able to recognize the flag in an mkv container burned with makemkv which at least when I used it, had no option to manually mark the forced flag like mkvmerge.

I will try to get some mediainfo.
