Disable video subtitles


I'm seeing videos with the program "Videos" on Debian and the videos came with subtitles. I don't want subtitles so I removed them, but even so the videos are subtitled.

How to disable the subtitles?

What do you mean by "videos came with subtitles"?

If they were captured with subtitles on you're stuck with them.

If there are hardcoded subs, you wont get rid of them.

What player are you using?

The program is 'Videos'. I just realised I have VLC installed, it must have been installed along with k3b. At least in VLC the subs aren't half way across the screen =p

Can't I open the video like it was a file? And then remove the subs?

EDIT: Oh, VLC has the option to disable the video subs!!

Steps:

On the menu bar = Video -> Subtitles track -> Disable

'Videos' isnt a real program name.

Help-> About in the top menu normally tells you the program name.

If you can disable the subs with VLC, most/all other linux media players should give you the same option.

Depends on the video and subs.

If its only got a .srt deleting that stops the subs. If its got embedded subs, you can normaly disable the subs. If its hardcoded, there is nada, nuffin, zip, zero that can be done.

I thought it was because there are option to "Open with Videos", and Help->about show the following

But I'm pretty sure the name of the program is Totem.

I also thought I couldn't but there's an option to disable that on Totem as well.

Deleting the .srt didn't made the program not to show the subs anymore.
There's no need to open the files anymore, although I will surely look into that in the future.
