We see posts from time to time about VCC and Subtitles.

These posts either complain that VCC Includes the Subtitles in a conversion or that it Excludes them…

As far as Subtitles and VCC, they are only found in DVD Movies… :o  You cannot have them in a Video File! If you have a video file with them, they are considered Hard subtitles and cannot be removed. If you want more info, Wikipedia is your friend: Wiki ;)

For testing, I have created a very short DVD Movie sample with 2 (Eng & FR) subtitles in it. You can download it from this location: HERE
Attached File  Download and Extract 1.jpg   148.47K   6 downloads
Use a Save or Save AS but note the location where you put it

After Downloading, Open the ZIP file:

Right Click on the SubTitle.zip and choose Extract All

Select a destination for the files:

You can use CinePlayer to test out the ‘DVD’… Browse Movie Folder and point it to the VIDEO_TS folder you extracted:

Right Click anywhere  in the movie field. If NO Subtitles exist the Subtitle selection will be grayed out:

However this one has both an English & French Subtitle:

VCC and Subtitles:
Load the sample movie into VCC by pointing it to the VIDEO_TS folder of the movie and select Movie 1:

Click on Options ~ General to see what is available:
Attached File  VCC 2.jpg   140.33K   2 downloads

Note the English and French subtitles listed (the ‘Unspecified’ is the Audio)

If you want to make a DVD without any Subtitles, clear the checkmarks by English & French:

Or if you want One and not the other or whatever suites you, do it here.

I suggest creating a Folder set from here (use the Copy DVD tab to burn it). Pick and Note the location:
Attached File  VCC 4.jpg   126.04K   2 downloads

You can test the results with CinePlayer or burn to a DVD

But when it is all said and done, use valid files and it works as expected ;)
