ROKU WEBVTT subtitles

Hey Guys,

I am using a video node in the scenegraph to display a player with webvtt subtitles. The subtitles are working fine but i'm facing a couple of problems.

Firstly, the video seems to be reloading everytime i change the subtitle tracks.The video buffers and reloads everytime i change subtitle track.Any ideas how we can change this behaviour?

Secondly, i saw that there is no way to change subtitle position using the default player. Does anybody know how we can get our subtitles to move position?

thanks in advance,
Govind

Subtitle position can only be set in the subtitle content, not under program control.
