I'd like to modify the open source Flash media player, JW Player [url removed, login to view]), so that you can pick a subtitle from a list of available ones. This is so that a person can view the video in their own language. Basically, JW Player should grab language lists from a server, display the list inside the player and allow person to pick a subtitle of their choice. You can see stuff I'd like done running on dotsub.com. or [url removed, login to view] After they pick a subtitle, subtitle will be loaded from a server.
Plus, it would be nice if I had control over the style of the subtitles, that is font-family, font-weight, color, stroke, line hight, position on within the screen (margin and padding ?) etc.
What I can do now by myself is to create the xml-captions-file. I have no idea how to change subtitle styles and so on.
I experimented a little on this site:
[url removed, login to view]
There you can see what I can do myself, the rest would be your job. All I need to know after you´re done is which parameters I can change to customize everything for my needs.
