Is it just me or does the blasted WD TV Live Hub do other people’s heads in too!?
To my serious question… Is it possible to override the Hub’s “Subtitle Default” setting via mkv flags? I’ve found a thread suggesting that with the Live and Live Plus you can’t. I’m guessing the Hub’s the same because I’ve not managed it in umpteen variations/permutations of “Default track” flag, “Track enabled” flag, “Forced display” flag, sub/idx, srt, ssa…!
Tackling the problem (of forcing display of English-Translation-type subtitles, but not general-type subtitles) another way, does there exist a utility that can ‘burn’ subtitles onto the video stream, without otherwise touching (i.e. compressing) the video? For example, Handbrake can burn on subtitles, but I believe it’ll always mess with (compress) the video too.
