How do I handle these subs?

Recommended Posts

I have a 6 part UK series entitled Murder Island (2021)
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt15580278

The release is "1080p.HDTV.H264-DARKFLiX.mkv"

It is listed as having subtitles.  MediaInfo analyzes them as follows...

Text
ID                                       : 3
Format                                   : DVB Subtitle
Codec ID                                 : S_DVBSUB
Codec ID/Info                            : Picture based subtitle format used on DVBs
Language                                 : English
Default                                  : No
Forced                                   : No

Neither VLCPlayer nor MediaPlayerClassic will play them.  Is there a way to extract the subs from the mkv file and convert them to .srt so they will play?

The basic mkv info is...

Video
ID                                       : 1
Format                                   : AVC
Format/Info                              : Advanced Video Codec
Format profile                           : High@L4
Format settings                          : CABAC / 4 Ref Frames
Format settings, CABAC                   : Yes
Format settings, Reference frames        : 4 frames
Codec ID                                 : V_MPEG4/ISO/AVC
Duration                                 : 47 min 14 s

MPC-HC can play them.

Subtitle Edit extracts subtitles of this type.

Thanks for the feedback.  MPC-HC is MediaPlayerClassic.  I tried that viewer:  under "subtitle track", I checked "enable", and selected the subs that were listed as "S: English [Eng] (dvdsub)".  Nothing displayed.

I'll look at Subtitle Edit but expect that's beyond my capabilities.

The subtitles contain errors in the text.
I'll add the rest of the episodes later.

OH WOW!  You are awesome!  Thank you so much.  I spot checked them against the video, and they looked good.

How did you get these or is that an addic7ed "trade secret"?

@velaomsk: do you happen to have the subs for S01E01 as well? Thank you very much in advance.

I'm downloading a video file with subtitles. But it can take a long time. Maybe a week or a month. It may never download.
