Thread: .avi with subtitles built in. Can they be removed?

  1. #1
    I downloaded an English .avi movie with Swedish subtitles built in. Is there a way to remove/disable the subtitles? (There was no subtitle file included with the download.)

    Then that means they probably are hardcoded into the video so no you will not be able to remove them. Unless you are lucky and the subs are located in the part of the screen were the black bars are shown then maybe cropping the video to remove the black bars might work.

    Yes. If you have VLC player goto Video, video track and you should be able to disable them

    Thanks DKre8ive1, that answers my question. I'll just have to download another version

    Maax, that doesn't work for my situation. It doesn't give me an option to disable subtitles, only the entire video

    If the subtitle can be turned off by VLC but there's no caption file such as .smi, probably this file will be in mkv, ogm, or similar formats in which captions are embedded in the file itself but in a systematical way (so, in this case, the current extension of that file is .avi, but originally it should be .mkv, .ogm, or something else). You can check it by looking at the file information in VLC.

    No, if they are hardcoded that means you cannot remove them. They are not selectable and are coded in the image. It is like a channel-logo, you cannot select to see it or not.

    But it is possible to romove a channel-logo with some video-encoding programs.
    So you could try to do the same thing with the subs. But it is a lot of hassle. I'd just re-download a decent version of the movie without subs, if I were you.

    Good luck.

    While what Disme said is (theoretically) possible you should be aware of the fact that each re-encoding process affects the image and video quality, so removing subtitles (and using whichever filters are suited best for that task) will not only fracture the movie at the place where subtitles currently appear but will also lower the quality of the rest of the screen.

    That's a consequence I wouldn't want to accept, but then again I like a good quality picture

    Why would you want to get rid of that cool looking language at the bottom of the screen?

    Exactly. Unless your able to crop them, which in most cases you can't..Unless you want to render the avi file useless, it's not possible(Well it is, but it wouldn't be smart or wise). If it is soft subs? Then obviously you would just either disable the subtitles in a player like Gomplayer, VLC, KMP, MPC, or delete the sub text file from the same folder where the avi file is located on your hdd.

    Excuse Me?
    Didn't Think So!
