As some of you may remember, I got a new blu-ray player for my computer (hooray!), but something's bugging me when I put on the movie Stargate.

I can't turn off the subtitles!

Apparently they think we Norwegians are so bad at English, that we need Norwegian subtitles to understand what's being said.

Anyhow, is there a way to force the subtitles off?
They annoy the hell outta me. I often find incorrect translations there, so I'd rather not have them :p

Yeah also I don't know if Media Player Classic plays them, haven't tested, but with it you just right click and disable subs.

I don't think MPC:HC can handle the Bluray disc structure just yet. (haven't tested it yet, but I don't see any internal plugins for it either, unlike DVD)

Have you tried turning off Closed Captions/Teletype? Some of the movies I purchased overseas have forced subtitles and they are considered "captions" or "teletype" instead of real subtitles, hence the reason the subtitle menu does nothing.

Oh, I see. It will find the main movie on the Bluray disc and play that only. It doesn't properly parse the disc structure like it does with DVD, meaning you don't have access to the disc's menus.

Why not ?

English Subtitle is very popular among the non-english spoken audience who want to learn the language and they who have deaf/hearing impaired. It is convenient and helpful, especially for acute novel readers since their brain is unable to process graphical images and digital audio that are now shown in modern movies. However, recent discoveries by the FAA (Film Association Association) and FDA (Film De-Association Association) shows that English subtitles are often misleading. Beware. :p

By the way, it is good for Hearing Impaired/Deaf people, why ?? Read ahead:

My roommate was friends with a few folks who used sign language to communicate, and the sentence structure of those signals was quite distinct from regular English. Don't know if that also means that English for the hearing impaired would also follow different rules, but it might!

Nouns and adjectives and verbs were often presented in different orders, and there are other variations all intended to make it easier to get meaning across quickly.

Subtitle rocks, really! Learn to appreciate your subtitles, OK ? :)

I never said subtitles were bad.
I just prefer not to see them, as I actually am quite good at English, at least compared to a lot of other Norwegians.

Subtitles = Good
Forced Subtitles = Annoying



E: Downloaded Media Player Classic - Home Cinema, build 1.3.1249.0 - but I can't see anywhere in the options that I can enable blu-ray or any other option remotely related to dvd that has anything to do with it :p

When I try to "open DVD", and choose the Blu-ray player, it just says "Cannot render the file".

He just wanted the Option to disable them! He wasn't saying they shouldn't exist, just that he should have the option whether or not to see them, having choices can be good.

ouch that suck, I just see wiki too and apparently any software/hardware have to pay royalty in order to play BD, which mean free softwares are unlikely able to play BD anytime soon. :(

Of course the powers that be want to prevent anyone else from messing with their DRM.
