OK, So it should be possible... I _am_ trying with regular .srt's, i.e.
Just text files with timestamps in them. I just can't seem to figure out
what I'm supposed to do to get them to actually get loaded into the
player. They are working in mplayer though, so the .srt's themselves are
fine. Any tips as to what might be wrong?

I'm trying this on completely clean .22 install, database and all, so I
can't imagine it being any old configuration messing things up.... or
_should_ there be an old configuration to make things work...? :)
