Seems now only UTF8 is supported. It would be nice if other file encodings are also supported like SRT subtitles

Actually I just wanted showtime to provide the interface to support other encodings for ASS subtitles, same as it does for SRT subtitiles. BIG5 is just an sample I provided. There are 3 main encodings for Chinese: GB2312, BIG5, GBK(mainly super set of GB2312 and BIG5).
I already implemented GB2312 support for SRT files in my build. If showtime plans to support Chinese encoding, I suggest support GBK/GB18030, not BIG5 or GB2312.
