HI all, I've been messing with DVD backups/Encoding over the weekend and have come across a strange issue. I took my copy of Ring, a region 0 DVD which is in Japaneese and the english subtitles play by default. I used DVD DEcrypter 184.108.40.206 to create the VOB file using file mode and no file splitting so the movie is all 1 vob. If i play the movie back in Power DVD 5 from the HD or use Virtual Dub to change the file to DivX/LameMP3 audio the file plays with the subtitles fine. If i take my copy of The Eye, again a R0 DVD which has English Subs over the normal Japaneese/cantoneese and use DVD Decypter and use the same settings i get a VOB with subtitles. (NOTE: The Eye asks you on the main DVD menu to play with or without subs...the DVD defaults to Subs on if you play without a selection but there is still that prompt on the menu rather than no option like Ring). The VOB that is created has subs (confirmed in Power DVD 5) however after conversion to DivX the subs are lost...i also tried Windows Media Encoder 9 as well and got the same result...no subtitles. Has anyone any idea how to get Virtual Dub to add the subtitles on DVD's like "The Eye" where there is a menu prompt and its not the default option. This also happens on "Dark Water" so i know its not the DVD thats at fault. I tried the Subtitle filter on Virtual Dub however it seems this only works if you have created your own subtitle file (.ssa)...not on subtitiles that are already on the film. Thanks.
