Converting a DVD of a series to files with forced subtitles.

Post by GregoryTheC » Fri Sep 20, 2019 4:14 pm

Description of problem or question:

Hi Folks,

All works well except it seems that the only way to get forced DVD subtitles for all episodes on a foreign DVD is to preselect English VOB subs, add the episode to the queue and repeat these steps for each title (episode). My question: Is there any way to rip a multi episode DVD with the same subtitle settings but without having to set each one, individually?

Thanks
Greg

HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):
1.2.2



Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):
Windows 7 64bit

Re: Converting a DVD of a series to files with forced subtitles.

Oops. My mistake. I don't want "Forced Only", I want "Burn In" subtitles for all episodes. (English (Wide Screen) [VOB Sub]
Thanks again

Configure the subtitle defaults/selection behavior the way you want, save it in a preset, select that preset, and add all titles to queue.

Yet another super confusing angry spaghetti part of the GUI that none of the users can figure out. Easier to write a short shell script to iterate through them with the CLI.
