How to remove embedded subtitles from a MP3 file in Linux?
I have a mp3 file with subtitles in it (it is sound of a movie in another language , so you don't have to download the movie again just the sound and it can be merged to the mkv file) The subtitle is translation for captions/text in film
If I play the mp3 file with "Videos" (default Ubuntu video player) it plays fine but if I do
lame myfile.mp3 newfile.mp3
Which should output an identical file, which it does without subtitles but when I try to play that it contains lots of noise/weird sounds. So my guess is that it parsed the subtitles as if they were part of sound.
so the question is how to get rid of any additional embedded stuff in a mp3 file preferably with tools available in linux (Ubuntu)?
As to why I need this is because I need to convert file format and lame doesn't handle this extra embedded stuff well , if you know a converter program capable of handling mp3 subtitles well that would do too.
After some googling it seems the subtitle is embedded similar to how lyrics are , which is some kind of id3 tags. I installed "id3" (a command line tool for Ubuntu which can manipulate id3 tags) but it didn't detect any tags in file . (lyrics are in id3v3 I think)
