I'm not positive that this is supposed to be within the scope of this
patch. However:

I have an OpenDML AVI with an embedded text stream, which is a subtitle
file in a format which I couldn't name but which looks fairly standard.
The first version of this patch which I tested did not as far as I could
tell at the time appear to recognize the stream at all, although it knew
there waa a third stream; this version sees three streams, one each
audio/video/text, but identifies the text stream as having length 1
(i.e. virtually empty).

The primary push for OpenDML support to be added to MPlayer has come
from people who want to be able to handle AVIs larger than 2GB. I
personally, however, though pleased to finally be able to seek in files
like this one without broken video effects, will not be entirely
satisfied until I can view subtitle streams such as this one.
