I have searched for the last 3 hours trying to figure out an answer to this question. I used DVD shrink to capture a 9 minute clip, saved the clip to a file (vob extension). When I play the clip in MPC, it works fine, except that the subtitles are not accessible. I set the directshow video to vmr9 in MPC playback output options. When I use cyberlink to play the file, the subtitles are shown. The subtitle options in on the play and navigate menus are greyed out. When I put a dvd in the computer and play it, I can show the subtitles, so I cannot figure out what the difference is and why MPC cannot show the subtitles on the clip.
Any insight will be most appreciated.
Maybe you are playing the VOB file itself, whereas your other DVD player plays the DVD directory as a whole. Try using the "Open DVD" command in MPC’s File menu, or pass "/dvd pathname" switch in the MPC command line.
If that doesn’t work, there’s something wrong with the way you mastered your *.IFO files.
Your suggestion worked great. I can now get to the navigation menu and enable/disable the subtitles. Is there a way to enable subtitles from the command line? I did not see it in the help box for command line on MPC. Or is there a way to configure an instance of MPC that runs with subtitles and one that does not. Thank you again. ric lewallen
