Subtitle metadata

Peter van den Houten
Hi, I'm seeing a change in the way FFmpeg handles metadata options, particularly for subtitles. I can't say when and which version cause it to change.

FFmpeg now appears to ignore the "-disposition:s:s:0 none" option which I would previously use to copy but not display subtitles by default:

~/temp$ ffmpeg -i in.mkv -c copy -metadata:s:v:0 title="" -metadata:s:v:0 language=eng -disposition:s:v:0 default -metadata:s:a:0 title="" -metadata:s:a:0 language=eng -disposition:s:a:0 default -metadata:s:s:0 title="" -metadata:s:s:0 language=eng -disposition:s:s:0 none -y out.mkv

I don't know if this was changed, but does replacing none with 0 and using a regular stream specifier after disposition work? e.g. -disposition:s:0 0

Tried both of those suggestions (and many more); FFmpeg now seems to be ignoring "disposition" - it still obeys language options (e.g. eng, dut, fre), title options (e.g. SDH)

If anyone is interested, I'm using MKVMERGE to set subtitles off by default until the FFMPEG multiplexer code is fixed (or someone can point out if/how formatting has changed).

The "--default-track 2:0" option sets track 2 (subs) to 0/none/off:

for f in *; do mkvmerge -o ~/temp/subs_off/$f --default-track 2:0 $f; done
