How to choose specific embedded sub?

Post by solarnoise » Fri Feb 26, 2016 4:08 pm

Hi, if I'm playing a mkv file which has several embedded subs, how do I select the one I want? What if there are multiples of the same language?

For example for a lot of anime mkvs, they'll have full English subs, but also English for just signs and text. Is there a way for me to select which one to use?

Right now my audio/sub option is set to eng/off, meaning if I'm using the English dub audio, I don't see the English subs for signs and text. I don't want to have to change this config if only specific files require it, and even then, I don't know how to specify which English sub to use.

It is very old info but still relevant to understand the principles.
I will try to update it and post it to UMS WIKI when I will find a time for it.
