    MKV Bluray ripped with DVDFab using PGS subtitles I get a lot of the following issue.
    Tried different splitters without joy.
    Anyone can get subtitles work proper with MKV? Should I use MP4 rather than MKV? What's your favorite container btw?

    I tried VobSub instead of PGS and they don't have that problem. However PGS are anti-aliased and VobSub are not apparently. So PGS are prettier when they work. Has anyone ever had similar issues? Could it be an issue with DVDFab?
    I updated LAVFilters to 0.63 but that did not help.

    I even tried MP4 with DVDFab and the subtitle quality is worst than with MKV VOBSUB.
    So for the time being I'm going to stick with DVDFab MKV and VOBSUB. I'm hoping I can get the guys at DVDFab to fix their PGS.
    I've opened a thread about this issue on their forums: http://forum.dvdfab.cn/showthread.php?t=26413

    From the my couch I can hardly tell the difference between VOBSUB and PGS anyway...

    I'm pretty sure this is now working on Windows 10 when using Microsoft renderers.

    Ok this was working at some point but I changed again my renderers and that broke it.
    Even putting back MS renderers is not helping.
    Which component is responsible for sub rendering?

    So this is a DVDFab issue after all, PGS work just fine when using makemkv for instance.
    Here is the new thread about that on the DVDFab forum:
    http://forum.dvdfab.cn/showthread.php?p=181177#post181177

    They have been sitting on the issue for 2 years now so do not expect it getting fixed anytime soon.
