Description (last modified by Ben Sturmfels)

I've just enabled the "subtitles" plugin and uploaded an SRT file like this:

00:00:00,00 --> 00:00:10,00
Hello there!

After enabling my subtitles on the video player, I'm not seeing any words. I wonder if this feature is still working following the multi-resolution video changes.

I would be great to confirm whether audio subtitles are working too.

Boris, are you familiar with how the subtitles feature is meant to work? Given it's one of the larger single features added since 0.9.0 it would great to mention it in the release notes, but would be good to know that it does actually work. :)

Subtitles *are* working! Turns out that to my understanding, Video.js only supports WebVTT format subtitles:

I've hidden the subtitles feature on audio items as the subtitles plugin does not yet support audio captions - would require changes to the audio player I believe.

I've also added some documentation on the plugin.
