    Hi the Telerik Team,

    I am willing to read a file that contains subtitles for he video I'm playing.
    Except from the Header property of the player element, I didn't found something that could be used for that purpose.
    Does a specific subtitle element exist for the player ?
    How would you proceed to synchronize such a subtitle file if using the Header property ?

    Thanks in advance and regards.

    Hello fred,

    Unfortunately there is no built-in support for subtitles.

    If you want to use subtitles, you will need to implement it. I guess that the best thing to do is just display a TextBlock over the media player. This approach will be most flexible.

    Synchronizing the subtitles will involve some kind of a timer. IMO the easier approach will be to refresh the subtilises at a given interval of time, say 100ms. Then you can check the progress of the video and read the correct subtitle for the frame.

    Sincerely yours,

    Hi Miroslav

    I'd like to know if in a future release, you'll be integrating Subtitles with the Player, and in perticular *.stl subtitles.
    This is common thing among most player ont the internet so...

    Hello fred,

    This will be great feature for the MediaPlayer, but we need more votes in our PITS system for this feature, in order to raise it's priority. You can vote and track it here.

    Best wishes,
