Subtitles embedded in video


[link to this post]
 
Is there a way of removing subtitles that is actually embedded in each frame of a film, instead of doing it the proper way ?

The only way I can think of doing it is by getting a video editor and somehow removing it from that.

I'd love to know what the "proper" way is--unless you mean buying a DVD?

Depends. If they are a separate stream then you should just be able to turn off subtitles in the DVD/BluRay controls. If however they are baked into the file then they are physically white pixels and therefore could only be removed by editing each individual frame (there may be software to help this but you would need to make a decision for each white pixel as to what colour it needs to be to match the image "underneath" them.

I have had to do this for photos before where the date stamp was burned in and try and get it to match the surrounds - there are easier tools these days but for 20 photos it took me ages a while back (and as 20 photos would be less than 1 second of video that would not be fun).

Usually the subtitles are part of a separate stream. In VLC media player go to Video>Subtitles track>disable.
