Target version:-


Allowing usage of SRT subtitles in Side-By-Side and Over-Under 3D movie would be awesome.

It should not generate so much workload as the current subtitle placement should only be cloned and positioned properly on each half of the screen (depending on SBS/OU movie).
The font-size can be changed already so no change here. (for now*)
The only "crucial" part would be to add a menu-item allowing user to set Off/SBS/OU movie type for subtitles.

  • Maybe in future it would be wise to take care of actually squeezing the subtitles, but it is not that necessary as there is not that much difference between squeezed-subs and just smaller-subs while watching 3D.

I think the best (and easiest) way to do this is to render the entire user interface in side-by-side mode, then all OSD menus etc will also work in 3D.

The only tricky part is that video surface itself is also part of the UI layout and that should not be rendered in side-by-side mode because then there will be four video surfaces onscreen :)
