Default can't disable embedded subtitles?

Hi - I have an OGM/XCD movie that plays fine, except for the fact that it has french subtitles playing in the movie at all times. I'm assuming these are embedded ogm subtitles, but in Media Player Classic, I can't disable them in Play|Subtitles (subtitles menu is grayed out). I've also disabled subs in both ffdshow and vobsub, and downloaded VSFilter 2.27 and the new Matroska splitter (as per, but nothing seems to help! I've tried other players as well, same problem.

Any ideas? thanks.

To eliminate subtitles from (DivX-compressed or other) .AVI videos

If you are fortunate enough to have the subtitles appearing below the movie image (rather than across the image itself, you can "erase" the subtitles by using VirtualDub as follows (it's not as complicated as it sounds):

1) Load the .AVI into VirtualDub (or one of its variants)
2) Set "Audio" to "Direct Stream Copying"
3) Set "Video" to "Full Processing Mode"
4) From under the "Video" dropdown menu, select "Compression" and select the same codec and settings that were used for the original .AVI
5) From under the "Video" dropdown menu, select "Filters"
6) Click on the "Add" radio button
7) Doubleclick on the "Null transform" filter
8) Click on the "Cropping" radio button
9) Enter the proper amount in the "Y2 offset" (at lower left) to cut off the subtitles
10) Click on "OK"
11) Click on the "Add" radio button
12) Doubleclick on the "Resize" filter
13) Under "New width and height" enter the NEW dimensions of your cropped video (e.g. 720x440)
14) Select "Precise bicubic"
15) Put a checkmark in "Expand frame and letterbox image"
16) Set "frame width" and "frame height" to the ORIGINAL dimensions (e.g. 720x480)
17) Click on "OK" (brings you back to primary "Filters" screen" and then click on "OK" (to get back to main VirtualDub screen)
18) From the "File" dropdown menu, select "Save AVI" and save with a NEW filename

Let us know of your success ;>}
