There are many ways to rip a DVD to MP4 on your computer for playback. But what to do if there are no subtitles at that scene or with foreign languages that you can’t understand? In this case, converting DVD with subtitles in .mp4 or other outputs is really necessary.
Some guys may turn to freeware like Handbrake or VLC, but they don’t have as many controls for choosing exactly the right format, subtitles or adjusting the quality of your rip to save storage space.

The Streaming Services with the Best Subtitles
If you’re more partial to streaming services and not keeping copies of your movies around, then it’s good to know which services have the most movies with subtitle options. Unfortunately, this isn’t as easy to figure out as it should be.
For English language subtitles, Netflix likely has the biggest selection, and they plan on having all of their movies subtitled by the end of 2014. Hulu is a close second, and Amazon is a bit behind on their subtitles.
For non-English subtitles, it’s a lot harder to find a streaming service. From Netflix, you can log into your account, head to the Subtitles page (located at the very bottom of your home page), select the language of your choice, and Netflix will display which movies have those subtitles. You can also add subtitles manually, but it’s a bit of a process.
