Forced Subtitle question?

I've just stumbled across a movie with forced subtitles present, they are embedded within the main subtitle track. What method does everybody use when they have forced subs or will the forced subs play automatically without having to do anything?

A lot of modern mediaplayers are able to recognize and autoplay these kind of forced subs. Some players will only honour a forced-flag if set for a whole track.

But containers can carry multiple audio- and subtitle streams. It's not always correct/desired to display forced subs. That's why many people choose to mux forced subs as a separate track. Which is always (de-)selectable with the remote.
