Blu-Rays subtitles

Hi there,

I use subler and its OCR for DVD VobSub works very well.

Unfortunately, I failed so far with BD PGS subs.

Is subler expected to work with PGS ? If not, which alternative do you use ?

Thanx !

Handbrake (at least the recent builds..not sure about the release) supports PGS subtitles very well. Also includes foreign language search support too. HERE is where you can download the recent build.

Thx for answer.

Yep I use Handbrake for transcoding. But it supports VobSub and PGS (last release) for passthrough. It does not OCR them to text, so iTunes/appleTV cannot display them.

So comes my use of subler (plus tagging). Its works well with VobSub, but not with PGS from my experience so far.

Maybe I don't use it properly, or this is by design and I should find an alternative ?

So you are wanting to create an srt that will produce a subtitle track that can be turned on/off vs burned in which cannot be turned on/off, correct?

Correct . Sorry should have stated that clearly in first post.

Now just realised why Blevins mentionned Handbrake (burned subs).

I am trying Subler out for a BR with PGS subtitles now. Have you considered downloading a srt instead of creating one?
