I'll give this a go and get back to you. Thanks for the info.
Yup, no need to pay for anything! I rip all my DVDs and Blu-rays to mkv's, preserving subtitles when needed, converting them to srt's when needed, preserving audio tracks and adding other audio tracks as necessary - it's all done with free (usually open source) tools, and in all honesty they work *better* than commercial ones that I've seen.
