Sadly when I remux in ProjectX, it creates a file with "teletext"
subtitles, and the log says it's throwing away the DVD subtitle track
(reason unknown).

"-> found PES-ID 0xBD (private stream 1) (SubID 0x20)-> ignored @ 2229706"

VLC then plays it, but the teletext subs are blank.

I tried several ways round, the best I can get is to extract
monochromatic DVD subtitles and remux them - out of sync - using ffmpeg.
No so good for processing hundreds of files!
