    I have:
    QuickTime Pro
    Visualhub
    Mkvmerge

    But I can't figure it out, I just want the subtitle(s) track deleted from the .mkv-file.

    If its embedded in the video then you cant, otherwise you may be able to de-mux the video and audio separately and re-mux them back together (in mp4 or whatever you like) but youd probably have to use mp4box and mkv extract in command line.

    I can keep the .mkv-container. Thing is, when I try in mkvmerge, I unselect the subtitle track and push "start muxing" I get the message "mkvmerge FAILED with a return code of -1." in the status and progress line.

    Very odd, i tried the same under windows, and it works fine. Can ffmpeg/visualhub or something else be disturbing the process?
