It becomes a "doesn't play over SGs" because it doesn't support
embedded captions where mplayer does (which doesn't support play over
SGs).  I guess I'm not entirely understanding why this isn't a
problem.  If the internal player doesn't support a feature that is
supported by an external player that forces a user use an external
player to get access to that feature, isn't that what you're talking

That being said, I think I use the internal player for just about
everything else at this point which makes me very happy.
