I tested one last night. The subs were detected, including what language
they were for, and I could display them with the internal player. They show
up in the middle of the picture though, is there a setting somewhere to
change this? I would like them at the bottom, preferably in the letterbox. I
didn't have time to browse through the settings, I'm sure there's something
in there though.

As for MakeMKV being proprietary, yes, it is. And they might charge for it
in the future. If it's reasonable, I will buy it. I have yet to use another
program, free or not, that works nearly as well. If it's not reasonable,
I'll have to find a new way of doing this I suppose. Handbrake has also
treated me well in the past, and I think it has options to keep the streams
without transcoding. I know it does for audio at least.
