Windows 7: Can't find the sound and subtitle settings for blue-ray files

Can't find the sound and subtitle settings for blue-ray files

Hi. I just downloaded Media Center which I gotta say looks pretty neat. There is one this it dosn't seem to do though. If I right click while a movie is playing I can press settings and then change the subtitles etc. This works just fine for regular DVD's, but not if I'm playing off a ripped mkv-file or something even though every other program I test (VLC, mediaplayer classic etc.) finds this info quite well. How do I fix this?

WMC cannot go into as much depth with non mainstream containers like MKV files to find information such as subtitles. There really is no fix for it.

I suggest you convert your video files out of MKV to an MPEG4 or MPEG-TS container if you want to get your subtitles through WMC.

Sorry for the late response. Do you got any programs to recommend which can convert these files to MPEG4 or MPEG-TS?

When I convert to mkv (mostly as an experimenter), I usually use direct rendering of one subtitle ( and that is English ) to the Video, so that the subtitle always plays with the Video. Of course you cannot do away with the subtitles but we are always happy with it.

My advice (like it or not): Play the original BDs with a BD optical drive/software player and enjoy the BDs in all their glory with all features facilitated.

Pulling the H.264 video out of the MKV container and into am MPEG4/2-TS container is harder than converting straight from the disc and requires multiple programs. There is an app called MeGUI that runs with AviSynth and MKVToolNix but it's a multi-step process.

I second that. If you have the BDs and you REALLY want to play them as files without the disc, download the newest version of Handbrake (HandBrake) and set it to your liking. Keep in mind you need a hefty processor to chew the video in a timely fashion. My six core process or at 3.6ghz encodes slightly slower than real time (maybe 0.92x) on four cores (handbrake is not 6-core friendly)
