I am unclear on how to tell if an mkv file contains hard, soft, or no subtitles at all. I am using sublet if that is helpful. If someone could explain this I would appreciate it.

Soft - the subtitles are as a separate SRT file or enclosed in the file as a third stream

Hard - every time you watch the movie the subtitles appear and there is no SRT file in the same folder as the movie

None - self explanatory

Open the file in VLC (Google it) and select the info window, that will tell you the video and audio codecs and tell you if a subtitle file has been embedded as a 3rd option
