When I play the sample through mythfrontend and manually select
subtitle track 4 (which mythtv identifies in the menu as forced), I
don't see any subtitles at all. Whereas track 1 shows normal
subtitles, and tracks 2 and 3 show some kind of director's commentary.
The same thing happens when playing the file with vlc 1.1.11 under
Windows. Interestingly, vlc also does not auto-select track 4.
Are you seeing any subtitles on track 4?
