Subtitles default question

Post by berocent on Sat Nov 03, 2018 6:22 pm

Hello,
I've been wondering if it's possible to set up "Full subtitles" as default track somehow via LAV or MPC settings Embarassed
- "Signs ąnd Song" are just subtitles for the opening and ending songs so I have to manually set it to "Full subtitles" each time Rolling Eyes

MPC-HC options > Playback > Default Track Preference

If you add "full" (without quotes) there, then it should pick the desired track. It matches based on track name. Put it in front of any language codes to give it highest priority. Also enable option to allow override external splitter choice.

Hi,
tried that but it doesn't work at all Embarassed
- tried with a similar video and a different version of MPC, and still couldn't change the default subtitle Shocked

I have tested that file, and this works for me:
MPC-HC options > Playback > Default Track Preference > Subtitles > 2
The 2 means select second subtitle track. Of course this may select wrong sub for other sets of videos, so don't forget to change it after watching this series.

Another solution is to modify the mkv file to change the default subtitle track. This is possible with header editor function in MkvToolNix software.

If you have any experience with scripting, it's pretty easy to change the track defaults with a batch script.  This is my preferred method because it's not video player dependent.  This methods require the use MKV Toolnix.  

a1 is the first audio track, a2 is the second, etc. s1 is the first subtitle track, etc.


Example Batch Script:

@ECHO OFF

REM APPLICATION FOR CHANGE DEFAULT TRACKS

set editpath="C:\Program Files\MKVToolNix\mkvpropedit.exe"

set FolderLocation=D:\MKV folder path goes here

for %%F in ("%FolderLocation%\*.mkv") do (

echo %%F

%editpath% "%%F" --edit track:a1 --set flag-default=0 ^
--edit track:a2 --set flag-default=1 ^
--edit track:s1 --set flag-default=0 --set flag-forced=0 ^
--edit track:s2 --set flag-default=1

)
