Right way to configure subtitles (forced foreign audio)

Post by AllesMeins »

Description of problem or question:
I'm struggling to get the subtitle-selection right. I want to preserve English and German Subtitles and set subtitles for foreign audio parts as a default. But somehow I don't seem to get it right. With my current encodes the subtitle for the hearing impaired are always displayed and I've to manually disable them everytime I start the video (but in the past I also produced videos with no subtitles for the foreign audio parts or with the regular english subtitles enabled by default).

My current settings and what they produce when loading a new video: https://imgur.com/a/X3qzBaN
