    I've tried a half a dozen programs to rip DVD's to a MKV file and some work and some don't. (Handbrake is rubbish!) However what none of them do is include the subtitles. I even downloaded the subtitle file separately and included it in the menu in Wonderfox but to no avail, they still won't work.

    So, a great DVD ripper to MKV, but one that will include the .srt file so that I can choose subtitles if I wish.

    I'm going to give this a try on my vast collections of anime discs.. Nothing more annoying than having to change disks and set the damn things up every time.. ;)

    I tried this program today but if you tick the boxes for subtitles, you can't turn them on and off when replaying. You either have them in view, or you do without.
    Is there a trick I don't know to adding them but making them switchable?

    I can turn them off on playback using MPC or VLC on the PC.
    Same using the WD TV media player.
    It's possible that playback on a PC using MPC might be a problem if ffdshow was also being used by MPC and ffdshow was set to show subs.

    I'm using Light Alloy. I could try MPHCC if you think that would be better

    Should that be MPC-HC?

    MakeMKV. Excellent program, the only one worth it's salt. It copies the embedded subtitle file too so you can switch subtitles on and off in your media player. The copy is just that too, a copy, not a transcoded copy, so quality is original. I did over 2000 dvd's in the end all with MakeMKV.
    I can't recommend it enough. :)

    irrelevant the op has done what he wanted the way he wanted with a program he found easy to use,handbrake & vidcoder alike would've worked,however setting it up to do what you want requires a bit of hands on as the subs are not displayed in an all inclusive window like in makeMKV & when subs are selected they may not be in the order required,not to mention knowing what default,forced & burn't in as well as selecting the subs required but not selecting the previous 3 i just mentioned will determine if they're turned on or require manually to do so
