So you believe DVDs with forced subs are all broken ? Jesus Alex, Steve
was making a valid proposal. Do you really think it is helpful to insult
him to find out what the best option is ? After all, we are trying hard
to find a way for offering the same menue functionalities than DVDs, but
in a single file. As a result of that, we should make up our mind how to
treat forced subs, dont you agree ? In the end, the player dev can
always decide to override that if he doesnt like it.
