Hi All, I normally watch videos (all formats except: mkv and MP4 are playable) using my Samsung DVD player and the TV. Normally, it loads the videos and subtitles properly but for certain movies it do not load the subs. But the movies load in VLC properly. I keep the file names same and put the files in the same folder and play through the USB. I checked all the controls in the DVD players but it will just not load the subs. And it happens only to some videos not all. Is there any way to rectify this error with the DVD player? I tried many workarounds on the video. I tried to embed the subs using Virtualdub but it takes a lot of time and plays with the quality of the video. I found the software ConvertXroDVD to be useful here. It converts the file to DVD with embedded subs and improves the video quality. But it also takes a long time. Is there any quicker or easier way to embed the subs into the video?

I belive MKV container alows to embed subtitles stream. You could mux the existing video and audio streams without having to reencode if they play fine on your Xbox, you just combine the 3 streams (video, audio and subtitles). I don't know a tool yet, but there must be one.
