Forced subtitles depending on Audio Stream (language)?

I just ripped my first blu-ray using MakeMKV. The movie is Lawerence Of Arabia (Restored Version).

It has 4 audio streams (eng DTS-HD MA, eng, deu, ita) and 10 subtitles (eng, deu, deu forced only, ita, ita forced only, etc...).

My question is this: Is it possible to set the forced subtitle stream depending on the audio I choose?

For example:
  • I switch to English audio: no default subtitle (there is no english forced subtitle)
  • I switch to German audio: German forced subtitle
  • I switch to Italian audio: Italian forced subtitle.

Furthermore, I want to hide the forced subtitle, because currently in VLC I see German and German forced, which is annoying. Forced should be forced when audio is German, but hidden from the subtitle menu.

No, not really.
There is TRACKSETEX but only supported by Haali. Not LAV or VLC.
There is theoretically a possibility with editions but no player supports it (AFAIK).

Hi Madcow and welcome to doom9 forum.

Yes the good old Haali Splitter is the only one with TRACKSETEX support.
In my old chapterEditor you will find a Haali TRACKSETEX editor to generate easy and fast the TRACKSETEX options you want.

Editions are supported by some players but what we need is the support of the "ChapterTrack" element.
