Why not to use MKVToolnix (https://mkvtoolnix.download/) to embed external srt (or any other type of subtitles) file into mkv container?
Then you have one small file less on your drive and no issue with LPM :-)
I know, you might have your own reasons to keep a subtitle files separated from mkv file but nowadays subtitles are usually embedded into mkv container together with video and audio streams.

I've been using that program for years to add subs or remove audio from a movie now and then but the separate subs i have now are from a tv series (60 episodes) so would take ages to remux them all. I did a google search to see if there's a program to add the subs without rewriting the whole file but i don't think that's possible.

You could look into MKVToolnix's menu: Multiplexer - Show command line.
Then you can create a batch file that will do the job of embedding srt files into your mkv files in one go.

Hello,

as @rafikW proposed you can use MKVtoolnix to embed any external subtile and easily document the forced tag, language etc... if needed.

But if you really want to use external sub files in your case, you just have to name them like that (and store them close to your movie files) :

your_movie_filename.eng.forced.srt

Kodi will read it first, place it even before all the mkv embedded tracks in the track list, it will generate the "forced" tag properly, and LPM should catch it with no issue.
I just checked/tested it now.

Still some mass file renaming required (vs batch mkvtoolnix runs) but  that will work  Wink

Maybe this is something that can be used: https://github.com/yaser01/mkv-muxing-batch-gui
Not tested, not checked by me though...

Brill this worked great! (used a batch file renamer) I might try one of the other methods mentioned in the future. Thanks for all the replies Smile
