as an old newbie (), I ask strange questions, don't I?
Well, I regularly buy BDs with English subs, and, because I am French (nobody's perfect), I would like to read them WITHOUT RIPPING on a standalone BD-player AND at the same time read French subs, for example from a USB-key.
I believe this is not possible for the moment, but I write the question nevertheless, we never know.
It would be great to rewatch this nice Bollywood, for instance:

As far as I know, it isn't possible to display external subtitles using a stand-alone Blu-ray player to play a Blu-ray disc. First, stand-alone Blu-ray players don't support playback from multiple sources at the same time. Second, Blu-ray disc playback follows a specification developed by the Blu-ray Disc Association for the sake of uniformity across all players. External subtitles are not part of the spec.Ignore list: hello_hello, tried, TechLord, Snoopy329
On a standalone no, even on a PC licensed software like power DVD won't allow it on encrypted discs. Sorry there isn't a better answer to give.if all else fails read the manual
Get hold of a Media player and transfer the BD disc into a MKV container to the HDD. The Media player should recognise both internal subs and external, with the same name. So no you can't add external subs to a standalone BD/DVD player. MakeMKV is a simple program and doesn't alter the picture quality. Quality in = quality out and Size in = size outBeyonWiz T3 PVR ~ Popcorn A-500 ~ Samsung ES8000 65" LED TV ~ Windows 7 64bit ~ Yamaha RX-A1070 ~ QnapTS851-4G
Hi usually_quiet and dannyboy48888, you confirm what I thought, nevermind, I'll proceed differently, thanks for your answers.
Hi netmask56, well, makemkv is not a freeware, I won't use it.
So here how I'll do:
DVDFab to rip the BD, merge the files with tsmuxer (if I use mkvmerge, there is an audio delay)
Check if the srt file is synchronized with the video and audio files (if not, synchronize with Subtitle Workshop for instance).
Put both the video streams and the subs on a USB device, with the same names for the files (KKKG.m2ts and KKKG.fre.srt)
And read them via my EMTEC Movie Cube.
It will be long, it will use many Gigas (43 for the movie), but it works.

All Oppo UDH and Blu ray player have this feature. I can confirm(on my bdp 93) that you can play an official blu ray disc and have a subtitle srt file on a usb stick(file needs to be in a folder sub and be named sub.srt) Then you can choose the external subtitle with the subtitle button on the remote control.
