Thanks for procedure. I don't tried it yet. But this procedure is based on changing color of original dvd-vobsub. Am I right?
Do I need this procedure even if original dvd-vobsub is white bordered in black when watching original DVD with player?
I heard that the color is intentionally changed by ffmpeg. Am I wrong?
