How to remove subtitles in rmvb

Updated March 23, 2017

If subtitles are hard encoded into your RVMB file, you must edit the video to remove them as they form a part of each of the video's frames. The file may also contain the subtitles on a separate stream, which is a problem as RMVB files don't let you block specific streams. To hide the subtitles, convert the video to a Matroska or MKV file, which can hide subtitles streams. Several freeware and shareware programs convert between the two formats.

Download, install and run RMVB to MKV Converter.

Click the "Open Video" icon in the window's top left corner.

Navigate to and select your RMVB file.

Click the "Options" button next to the "Open Video" button.

Choose a destination name and location. Click "OK."

Click "Convert."

Open the MKV file and disable its subtitles through your media player's "Video" or "Playback" menu.

Download, install and run Dicsoft RMVB to MKV Converter.

Click the "Common Video" button in the "Convert To:" toolbar.

Click "MKV" from the new toolbar that opens. Select "General MKV video" from the drop-down menu.

Click the "Add Files" button. Navigate to and select your RMVB file.

Click "Convert Now!"

Open the MKV file and disable its subtitles through your media player's "Video" or "Playback" menu.

Download, install and run iOrgSoft RMVB Video Converter.

Click the "Add..." button. Navigate to and select your RMVB file.

Select "MKV" from the drop-down "Profile" box.

Choose an output name and destination in the "Output" box.

Click "Convert."

Open the MKV file and disable its subtitles through your media player's "Video" or "Playback" menu.
