    I have some foreign language films that I'd like to rip to single .avi or .mpg files for each film however I'd like to have the option of choosing the subtitles when viewing the new files (when I feel like reading them). With 'Handbrake' I can only 'burn' the subtitles over the movie, whereby they are permanently displayed when viewing the movie. On a DVD you have the option of displaying subtitles. They are always selectable at any stage in the film from the main menu. I'd like to make an single .avi file with a similar option. Is this possible?

    Have you tried using the .MKV container with subtitles and seen if it works there?

    PS:

    But Handbrake is not able to not hard burn the subtitle into the video, as I just read on the Handbrake site.

    Maybe this could help:

    Search is your friend:
    http://www.videohelp.com/tools/D-Subtitler helps you to rip the subtitles of your ripped DVD (video_TS folder) and convert it to an .srt file, which can be used alongside with your video (avi, mp4, mkv) in VLC.
