Im really really sorry if this has been posted before, but I felt like I did a pretty decent search on this forum looking for a good solution to converting Bluray to Apple TV with forced subtitles on a Mac and didn't find anything. I loved the automation software that is stickied to this forum, but I always had terrible results with Blurays and definitely no forced subtitles. I found this quick guide on a Handbrake forum randomly and it has worked perfectly for all my movies that require Forced Subtitles to make any sense (Inglorious Basterds, District 9, etc..). Programs you Need: MakeMKV MKVtools BDSup2Sub MKVtoolnix Handbrake 1: Load up the Blu-Ray disc in MakeMKV. Locate your track; uncheck the master level Subtitles option, but leave the forced only option checked. Then rip. 2: Extract the subtitle track out of the rip using MKVtools (this option is found under the EDIT tab). (If there is no track available, you will likely need to select the whole subtitle in Step 1 and then check "Forced" on Step 4) 3: Load the extracted .sup file in BDSup2Sub (don't select any of the conversion options initially presented). Once loaded, set the Output Format to SUB/IDX, then Save/Export from the File menu. 4: Using Mkvtoolnix, under Input, add the rip you made from MakeMKV, then add the IDX file. De-select the original subtitle track (should be labeled S_HGMV/PGS, or something similar). Select the VobSub track and under track options, set the language to whatever is appropriate. Then Start Muxing. 5: Once muxing is complete, load up the new file in Handbrake, set your options, and be sure to select your new subtitle track before hitting Start. DO NOT select the Forced option. A couple notes: this guide was written with the intent that the subtitles get burned in for MP4 compatibility. There's no need to use the "Forced" flag if done this way because only the forced subtitles will get ripped to begin with. Just burn them in as if they weren't forced. If you try to use the "Forced" option in HandBrake, this presumably will fail (unless you happened to enable the "forced" flag while in step 4). If you plan to make an MKV file in the end with HandBrake, but don't want the subs burned in, be sure to set the "Forced" flag for the VobSub track in step 4, and (obviously) not use the "Burned In" option in HandBrake but do use the "Forced Only" option. Sometimes when you select the forced subtitle file in MakeMKV, nothing shows up in MKVTools. I found I would just select the whole subtitle and then with Step 4, I add the only Forced Subtitle option. Works just as well. Hope this helps. I may not be the best assistant with your questions since I basically just followed these instructions from "Lifeisabeach" on the Handbrake forum.
