Hmmm, I had a DVD that resetted the time in the middle. It played
without any problems (but this was about a half year ago. I dunno
about current versions.) How did you play it?

How did you create them? What format did you use? A while ago, Arpi
wrote that the SVCD subtitle format is not documented. This is the
reason why mplayer can't handle SVCD subtitles. I searched for some
information on that topic, but could not find anything either. So if
you have informations, please share. :)
