random dvd roundup

wonkabar.org: I've been shuffling stuff around lately with my DVD collection, and one thing I've been doing is cleaning up my DVD ripper and web frontend to catalogue my entire collection. I found a few bugs in my ripper this weekend, one of them was that I was only storing one possible subtitle type in my Matroska rips. If a DVD had both VobSub and Closed Captioning, it'd only mux the first one I added. Fixing it was fun, since it was one of those moments where you open up the code trying to find the reason for it, and you find a big comment labeled "FIXME: Add this feature here." Heh. So, now it muxes both, if available. Woots.

There is still one DVD subtitle format that I am having absolutely zero luck in finding anything about -- English SDH (Subtitled for the Deaf and Hard of hearing). Speaking of subtitles and MPlayer, I've come to the conclusion that MPlayer's support for them is just plain sub-par.
