My aim was to get my blu-rays and DVDs ripped onto a 3TB WD elements desktop and play them with a WD TV Live Plus like the original discs. I had been researching and jumping on forums for a best way achieving this goal, finally I decided that MakeMKV was pretty much what I was looking for.
The mkv files turned to run well on my WD TV Live Plus with stunning picture and 5.1 sound. What’s annoying is blu-ray subtitles. I can see subtitles when I play these mkv files on computer, I can see subtitles. However, when play them with WD TV, there’s not subtitles at all. I ripped 3 blu-rays to MKV and they have all the same problem.
Anyway, WD TV plays my DVD movies just fine with subtitles. Why? I was told that WD TV plays bluray subtitles, but obviously it doesn’t work for my box. Should I return my WD TV Live Plus back for a new one? or is it a problem for all WD TV boxes? How do I get mkv subtitles displayed correctly?
My wife is Spanish and we absolutely need subtitles. If anyone can help, it would be hugely appreciated.
