#106 Why vobsub support is removed?

Spyros K

Is there a specific reason for removing vobsub support from ffdshow?
The problem now is that we have to use directvobsub for displaying these idx/sub subtitles and completely disable subtitles in ffdshow, to avoid showing double subtitles since directvobsub displays all other subtitle formats too.

    VobSub support was very buggy.

    In revision 4422 was good even in ms players. I would suggest that you should re-instate vobsub support and let users enable/disable the option in ffdshow.
    OR at least (maybe additionally) check the graph and if directvobsub is loaded don't use internal subtitle filter even if it is enabled.
    I believe that the problem with double subtitles must somehow be solved in an automatic way.
    Have in mind that many people use HTPCs to watch videos and it's not easy to enable/disable subtitles from taskbar icon everytime.
    Thank you.
