subtitles Lost when Merging Multi Format Movies(DVD and BluRay)

Issue: When a movie is merged with another movie (eg bluRay and DVD quality) in the same folder the subtitles are lost
Current running Version on Windows 10
How to recreate the issue:
I converted Hidden Figures in both DVD and BluRay. The DVD has subtitles (VOBSUB) included in the M4V file. The BluRay current does not have any subtitles included. I have them in the same folder named as indicated below
Hidden Figures (2016) - 1080p.m4v
Hidden Figures (2016) - 480p.m4v
when the movies are merged together i can see in the info of the movie the following subtitle
Bitrate 6 kbps
Language English
Stream Identifier 6
But the drop down for subtitles shows "NONE"
but when i split the movies apart then all the subtitles for the DVD show up.
I get if i select a subtitle that is only available for the lower grade DVD i will be forced to a lower quality movie and the mater of the fact is I am ok with that because i asked for subtitles and that is the only file that contains them but to hid them and not show the exists this is a bug.
