Not necessarily SSA format; rather, it will (should) extract the same
plaintext subtitle file which whoever created the AVI had before they
put it in there. That file might have been SSA, but it also might have
been SRT or almost any other plaintext subtitle format.
Warning: Simply because I argue an issue does not mean I agree with any
side of it.
