Quote:are external subtitles for dvd's really needed?i would say yes as there a few places to download subtitles. typically r1 gets movies fastest. this means other regions dont have to wait for the dvd to be released and can use the r1 disc.
and i see your point about dvd's. how do can we auto detect an alternate external subtitle? in this case, i think just providing the ability to manually browse for external subtitles would be sufficient.
