Comment:
Not sure if this is the right place for such a comment, but although support
for an external text file for subtitles or captions is a great addition to the
standard I would also recommend that display of embedded track data already
injected into the media file could also be supported. The reason being that
one of the most frustrating aspects of subtitles and media is that they are
often split apart making it difficult for users to know how to bring them
together. Users being media owners or simply viewers. DVD is one of very few
formats that includes subtitles as a stream and this is excellent. the moov
tracks in a quicktime media file also support text tracks and can be used in
mp4 files as I already do. This means the file can be anywhere and the
subtitles are available with the audio and video, why split them up when they
can stay together ?
