OK, I didn't know it was not your patch.
I really hope it is going to be merged in phonon trunk soon. For now, it seems phonon miss a lot of features concerning subtitles (changing font, color or position as in smplayer would be great for instance).

Maybe you could ask to have an access to gitorious to submit corrections to phonon, especially if you aim to add subtitles options to your app loopy ?

Nice feature. But I can't understand why you don't commit your feature to the phonon gitorious repository :

http://www.gitorious.org/phonon

What's more, the internal subtitles of MKV files are not recognized by loopy, while dragon get them.

Is there any way to choose the external srt file ?

Hello,

thanks for your comment, i thought you know that this patch wasn't made by me (MonsterMagnet). It was made by Romain Perier a long time ago.
I don't follow any dev mailinglists, but as far as i know phonon subtitles support is not planned.

Q:What's more, the internal subtitles of MKV files are not recognized by loopy, while dragon get them.
A:You are right, Loopy has no internal subtitles support yet.

Q:Is there any way to choose the external srt file ?
A:Yes, as far as i can see this is supported by the patch, but not by Loopy yet.
