So many WD TV uses turn to MKV format, which holds a whole movie in a single file including lossless video, multiple HD audio tracks and subtitles. But another issue comes up- subtitles are not displayed as you watch ripped movie on HDTV, because WD TV Live Plus HD Media Player does not supports PGS subtitles in MKV container. In order to have subtitles displayed correctly, you have to extract the subtitles and convert it to a format that Live Plus does support, like srt, ssa, sami, etc. What is the best and easiest way for copying DVD for watching on HDTV with WD TV Media Player for TV as private using ?
That remains to be an unsolved problem until the release of Pavtube ByteCopy for Mac, an integrated DVD copy and DVD Ripper
