Some Subtitles Work Fine On TV But Others Won't

I've been trying to fix this problem for a week and hoping someone here can give me some tips. My problem is this..I've downloaded a couple movies to my PC and they play just fine with my VLC Media Player (subtitles and all); however, when I copy the movie to my stic and play it on my HDTV, some of these same movies play the subtitles just fine with no problem but other's won't play the subtitles at all. This gets very frustrating especially when it's another language and a very important part of the movie. The format for the movies is the same (mp4) and the format for the subtitles is the same (.srt). I even tried copying the .srt file to the stic even though those that play ok on the tv don't have them on the stic but are somehow embedded in the mp4 file. This is getting very frustrating because I've tried so many different things to get this to work and have had no luck. ANY suggestions are appreciated!

You've answered your own question.

Some of the movies have the subtitles hard-coded (embedded), while others don't.

You can get software to hard-code the subtitles, if that's what you want.

Try Google.
