I am using MCEBuddy 2.5.3-BETA to strip Windows Media Center .wtv files of all commercials. No other operations are needed- just take the commercials out. I then play the commercial-free file on Windows Media Center (Windows 8.1.)
I am finding that while closed captions are shown when playing the unprocessed .wtv file, they are missing in the converted file. I have tried all 3 WTV profiles (WTV, WTV Legacy, and WTV Unprocessed) with same result. In Expert Settings->Subtitles and Chapters, I have both checked, or unchecked, the Add Subtitles and/or add Chapter boxes. Additionally, I tried using MCEBuddy 2.5.2 without success.
I originally posted this dilemma in the Platform Support->Windows Media Center section. I only had 1 response, which did not resolve the issue. So I am posting to this section hoping that someone who uses MCEBuddy to strictly remove commercials can advise on what setting(s) that I have wrong. Again, closed captions ARE visible in the unprocessed .wtv file.
Thanks in advance.
