  1. My wife had a coupon for downloading a movie off of some site. She gave me the movie and when I open it up in VLC, there appear to be 3 subtitle tracks; one in English, another in Korean, and a final one that I don't know what it is.

    But when I open the file in mktooknix, another media player, and in subtitle extractors for windows instead, only the English track appears. And the "download subtitles" option of vlc is not selected, so I don't believe vlc is just getting them automatically.

    Either way, how does one go about extracting such a sub that will only seem to show up in vlc.

    Sounds like your wife downloaded a movie with burned-in subs,if it's an illegal release of a movie then there's nothing you can do.

  3. Again, they are separate tracks/streams. There's no burned in anything.

    In VLC:
    Subtitle stream 1 is English (an SRT)
    Subtitle stream 2 is Korean (in EUC text encoding)
    Subtitle stream 3 is some other one I didn't look into as I only care about the other two

    In other players/extractors, only the English stream shows up.

    Just a hunch - load the file into MKVMergeGui and take a look under the Attachments tab (The tab to the right of Input) Maybe there are a few jpg attachments that are confusing VLC?

    Might be Closed Captions which are not always visible to Mediainfo. In which case I would use CCextractor. Or the subtitles are teletext which is used for PAL subtitles, something I have no experience with but CCextractor may be able to deal with it.
