Not directly. Vuze uses "VOB containers" to stream content, and VOB's can only contain two streams - one video and one audio.

All is not lost, however. To play subtitles in a video using Vuze to stream to your device, you have to burn the subtitles into the video stream prior to transcoding. This is easy to do.

If you're streaming an .avi video, you can use AVI ReComp to burn or "hardcode" subtitles into a video:

For .mkv's, use mkv2vob:
