  • (2019-10-23) Jp Icalla: I was gonna try it to test a subtitle to see if its positioning / styling is working as intended where community contribution is disabled. I thought it would also work for WebVTT (vtt) subtitles also but I think only SubRip (srt) subtitles are supported. If it's possible, please add an option where you could use YouTube's native subtitle player (if that's possible) and also add support for WebVTT (that can support styling and positioning)? If it helps, when loading subtitles, I think they transform the subtitle loaded when pressing the CC button to a <timedtext/> XML document (if you inspect the request on console). But if I'm actually gonna watch movies or something, I think it would actually be very useful.

  • (2019-01-19) Najmeh Mousavi: Great work! I am using Persian language. For some srt files it works perfectly. However for those files which I have to change my current system locale to "Persian" (in my own laptop) it does not work and it shows the line all in question marks. Maybe you can fix this bug in your next release :)
