Q: “Is there positive way to rip my Blu-ray movies with corresponding forced subtitles for foreign language dialogue? I use MakeMKV, but the ripped subtitles are not shown normally. Need your help!”
Forced Subtitles are generally provided when the characters speak a foreign language, or there is a sign, location, or other text in a scene which cannot be translated in the localization or dubbing. Usually, Blu-ray discs are embed with forced subtitles in two ways. The first is to have a separate track with only the forced subtitles present. The second is a single pgs with certain lines flagged as forced. When you try to rip Blu-rays, some freeware like Handbrake won’t preserve the forced subtitles in your original movies. Then how can you rip/convert Blu-ray movies with forced subtitles with ease?
