Is there a way I can remove subtitle data from an .mkv?
Use MkvToolNix. The
mkvmerge tool can do exactly what you want. It's a very capable Matroska manipulator and should be able to remove any kind of stream from an MKV without recoding all the other streams.
- On Windows, download the latest version from here. Just run the installer.
- On Linux, you can find the package
mkvtoolnixin your repository, or alternatively download them from the homepage.
- On OS X, the easiest way would be to install
I think one of these commands will do what you want:
# assume input.mkv has 3 subtitle tracks # remove subtitle track 2 (copy 1&3) from input.mkv & save to output.mkv mkvmerge -o output.mkv --subtitle-tracks 1,3 input.mkv # remove all subtitles (copy none) mkvmerge -o output.mkv --no-subtitles input.mkv
