    Getting a consistent problem with a particular set of .MKV files in Subtitle Edit. When I open the subtitle file and select the English track, the subtitles just don't show up in SE, even though I can see the English subtitles when I watch the file and the other subtitle tracks are opening just fine. Other files aren't having this problem, so I know it's just this particular set of files. How can I fix this?

    Do you mean the mkv itself, or did you demux the subtitles first?

    Demux? Sorry I'm a total layperson. I opened the .mkv file directly through Subtitle Edit if that's what you mean.

    Demux - to extract the individual elements in a video file such as audio, video and subtitles to 3 separate tracks. There are a number of programs that can do this for mkv files. eg MKVCleaver
    Load the file into the program and it will reveal all tracks present. Tick the subtitle track/s and extract. You will then have a separate subtitle track generally in SRT format. a text base form.

    If you still dont see any subtitles using mkvcleaver on this file it could be that the subtitle has been burned into the video.(re-encoded)
    I think,therefore i am a hamster.
