I have some movies in matroska format. They have english subtitles in. The problem is I have to manually select those by either clicking
V or selecting them from the context menu.
Now I've seen those threads:
The first one suggests that I should set the
Subtitle track ID option in VLC to match the subtitle track id from my movie. Fair enough, it works, but when I launch a different one - it doesn't.
The second one suggests using
Subtitle track and
Subtitle track ID and selecting
English as a preferred language. Now, this is better as it works for most kind of files, but there is one problem: What if the subtitles are not named as
English (i.e. they are just
Sub track 1)? Well, then it doesn't work.
So my question here would be: Is there a way to modify those files (i.e. with
mkvmerge), and by modifying I mean just changing the subtitles name (or language name - don't know how it works in
matroska)? And if not - can I somehow make it work in VLC then?
