Like the title says, I don't understand this setting. Default value is ON and to me this seems to imply that if subtitles exists, the video will always be converted instead if directly streamed so as to get burned-in subtitles. But since this seems strange (soft subtitles seems to me to be the natural choice) I suspect I'm simply missing something here  :)

Hi,

 

basically this makes sure that every time user choses "force hard subtitles" or the subtitles are DVD (vobsub) and need to be burned in, the video is converted. I'm not sure if it makes any sense to turn this behavior off, the option was used for testing and probably should have been removed. Without conversion hard subtitles will not be displayed (because they are burned in during conversion).

Thanks, understood! And I agree, having a setting which enables you to make sure subtitles will never work in some files even if you've selected to see them sounds like a somewhat unnecessary setting ;)

Indeed. At least we have sane default value :)
