    I don't think there is. Since they must have encoded the movie with the subtitles on it, if the subs aren't a separate file. If you could take them out than there would just be white space left or something like that.

    Depends on the type of video file, sometimes subtitles can be disabled even though it's not a dvd...

    Yup, formats such as Ogg Media can have features such as dual audio and switchable subtitles in a single file.

    Try your players Subtitle menu to see if there is an option to turn them off, if not, it's likely they're a part of the actual video rather than being genuine sub titles.
