How to extract .srt subtitles straightly from a Blu-ray Disc? You can't expect a free subtitles converter app (e.g.Suprip, BDSup2Sub, HD-DVD/Blu-ray Stream Extractor) coming with Blu-ray hacking features.

But even best ranking Blu-ray rippers can be very weak in the processing of Blu-ray subtitles- MakeMKV rips Blu-ray to MKV without changing the PGS subtitles
at all. Pavtube ByteCopy burns only one subtitles stream to the movie when converting BD to AVI, MP4, MKV, etc. The app I'm going to introduce in the following passages, however, does rips .srt subtitles from Blu-ray Disc
