Subtitles Problem

Question

Problem with Toast 9 - it strips the subtitles from movies I copy.

 

I've tried two methods. One is a straight disc copy. This strips the subtitles if you play it on a TV, but allows them to show if you play them on the MacBook.

 

The other is using the Data field and dragging in the VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS files. This just strips the subtitles totally.

 

Obviously the settings have changed a bit since Toast 5, my last use of the software, but I can't work out how to change the preferences to let the subtitles remain. How can I do it?

This sounds like you are copying commercial DVD's which roxio wont let us discuss on this forum. If that is the case though, I suspect that it is your DVD ripping application that is stripping the subtitles.

If you can see the subtitle on your MacBook, the subtitle file is there and your DVD player for your TV just doesn't pick it up properly. Don't think it's anyting Toast related.

There is another solution: Instead of using the 'DVD_Video' setting for burning, use the 'VIDEO_TS Folders' or 'VIDEO_TS Compilation' setting. Either one will leave your (selectable) subtitles intact.

 

I have another problem, however. I have a set of movies (not commercial ripped ones) that I went to great length to add selectable subtitles to. Now I want to burn these to a single DVD with a navigable menu. I can do this using the DVD_Video setting but this will strip the subtitles. Using the VIDEO_TS Compilation setting does not allow me to add a menu. It seems silly to me that TOAST 9 does not provide a possibility for both adding a menu and preserving selectable subtitles.

Does anybody know of a solution or of an alternative piece of software (for MacOS 10.4.11)) that can add a navigable menu to a multiple-title disk ?

don't think it can be done but please update if you do find a software that would allow you to accomplish what you want to do.
