Whenever I download a movie that is an MKV, it usually comes with subtitles. (srt file)
If I play the movie on my computer I can turn off the subtitles on VLCplayer. However, if I place the movie on a flash drive for my blue ray player, the movie no matter what keeps the subtitles. Even if I delete the srt file and try to disable the subtitles with the remote, they just don't seem to go away.
The subtitles aren't hardcoded but somehow retain the subtitles. How can I remove them? Thank you.

It seems that the MKV file has subs contained within the mkv container as well as the external. Just delete the srt and load the mkv into mkvmergegui and see if there are indeed any internal subs, if so just untick all but the video and audio and remux. No re encoding is involved so no loss of quality.BeyonWiz T3 PVR ~ Popcorn A-500 ~ Samsung ES8000 65" LED TV ~ Windows 7 64bit ~ Yamaha RX-A1070 ~ QnapTS851-4G
Well, I had the opposite problem, subs would always display on Media Player Classic for any file type. It was a pain to find where to turn them off at.
Here is where I went to turn them off in MPC,
From the menu bar at the top, go to >Play>DirectVobSub (auto-loading version)>Hide Subtitles
The only reason why I'm posting this, is because I have forgotten this in the past, and it was a complete pain in the but to find out how to turn them off/on again.
As you can see on the pull down menu from >Play, the subtitle menu option there is grayed out. Why is it even listed there? I wonder if I'm just using an old version of MPC.
