Re: [dev] Writing subtitles for videos

As Felix pointed out (and I had not previously realized), the subtitles
depend mostly on the audio, and the video can largely be ignored.
I thus think it has relatively little to do with blind.

I had looked at mpv and came upon the annoyingly close but still
unhelpful watch-later feature. I considered whether it was possible to
implementing my proposal with just edits to input.conf and whether it
was worth using libmpv, but had not considered lua scripts. A Lua script
indeed looks promising.

It still seems a bit messy, (Perhaps a scripting language could be
avoided entirely if the mpv configuration were written in C.) but this
will probably satisfy me for now.
