Until it is decided how to store other subtitle formats in Matroska, it
appears that we should come up with a way to convert other subtitle formats
into something that can be used right now with Matroska. I propose a simple
USF conversion. The examples given by Toff are very complex because of all
of the options that are being shown off, but USF can be used as a very
simple format. For example:
This is an example of some subs produced with subrip.
00:01:04,274 --> 00:01:06,390
Thebes: City of the Living.
00:01:07,634 --> 00:01:10,068
Crown jewel of Pharaoh Seti the First.
00:01:13,194 --> 00:01:16,664
Home of lmhotep, Pharaoh's high priest.
This is what it would look like converted to USF.
<subtitle start="00:01:04.274" stop="00:01:06.390">
<text>Thebes: City of the Living.</text>
<subtitle start="00:01:07.634" stop="00:01:10.068">
<text>Crown jewel of Pharaoh Seti the First.</text>
<subtitle start="00:01:13.194" stop="00:01:16.664">
<text>Home of lmhotep, Pharaoh's high priest.</text>
It is such a simple conversion, that this could easily be used to mux other
subtitles into Matroska. All we need is a directshow filter to show them
