Is there any way with Haali MatroskaSplitter to set the pair of
video/subtitle track as with audio/subtitle tracks?
Now we can select automatically a subtitle for an audio language, for example
with "spa,off;*,spa" witch means that if the audio is spanish do not show
subtitiles, else show spanish subtitiles. I want to do this with "forced"
subtitiles, i.e., if the video language is other than spanish show spanish
"forced" subtitles, independient of the audio language. The configuration
will be the same as shown (spa,off;*,spa) but with the pair video/subtitle
track. Many films shows text over the images in it's original language
(video language) and has "forced" subtitles to show this, but this are all
done manually I want to know if is possible to do as with audio/subitle
If not, this will be a good addition for future releases. I think that this
will need a configuration (as with audio/subtitle) and a flag to in the
subtitle track to denote "forced" instead of "normal" subtitle track
because you can have many tracks for the same language and the splitter
don't know which of them are the "forced".
One example of this will be the start of the Star Wars that shows an
introduction to the history that is show in english and in any DVD are
subtitled automatically with the "forced" subtitles..
