          Yes they are unintentionally arguing against open source. They are begging the billionaires that are making trillions off their free work to support them a little bit. But the pathetic begging that will never be considered without pushing caveats that give the cloud corp control will never be considered.

        Open and closed source share the same vulnerabilities, in that, if you let non-vetted people submit code and you accept that code then a child could hack the planet. True peer reviews by multiple people are the only safeguard regardless if open or close source.

      Always good to have another reminder that OSS has been very effectively exploited by closed-source corpos. To have true FoSS we need a License that does not allow usage in any centrally controlled closed source/cloud tech corpo service. And we need people to stop trying to support F/oSS jsut to get a job in closed source/cloud tech.

      And everyone will say no (despite not having a viable alternative)

        Looks like this commotion has caused a comedian to add to the thread.

        I spose the deeper issue is that they upgraded to a newer version of ffmpeg and didn't test thoroughly to identify the change they needed ahead of time. And instead of rolling back to a functioning version they just made this ticket claiming it was broken.

        furthermore, WebVTT only allows URLs with a data scheme.

      This is absolute bullshit. Once again mpv devs prove that they are useless pedos whose only skills are watching anime.

      WebVTT is meant for use in connection with the HTML <track> element.
      Programs that deal with HTML usually are able to handle CSS, so it makes sense to use it for WebVTT. Same goes for scripting with JS.
      That being said, you don't have to support CSS/JS at all if you don't want to.
      https://www.w3.org/TR/webvtt1/#conformance-classes
      You can do some basic styling without CSS:

        Don't get your post. You call mpv devs useless pedos, fair enough, then go on to 100% support their reasoning.

        >WebVTT is meant for use in connection with the HTML <track> element.
        >Programs that deal with HTML usually are able to handle CSS
        Exactly why they don't want full support it in their non-HTML software
        >That being said, you don't have to support CSS/JS at all if you don't want to.
        If you look at the screenshots in the OP you will see that that is indeed what mpv currently does. The issue was about missing the additional "optional" styling

        furthermore, WebVTT only allows URLs with a data scheme.
        there is absolutely nothing insane about applying styling to all cues after/before a specific cue. implementing something like this is beyond easy.

        All of which they already support anyway. (Dis)playing images/audio/videos is its main purpose after all and fonts are needed for text in the OSD. (More specifically the OSD is implemented by (ab)using the ASS renderer afaik)

          If you look at the screenshots in the OP you will see that that mpv does not respect the position of the subtitle as defined in the vtt file. This has nothing to do with CSS, you do not need a CSS engine for this.
          So this whole rant about muh DOM, JS scriptability (which is wrong, WebVTT is not scriptable) and CSS is completely misplaced.

    Closed source/ open source is something that was important 20 years ago. But in the post-2010 world the important thing if it's a centrally controlled "cloud" service or not. For example: Microsoft it completely allowed by the GPL to sell access to linux-based servers, using their closed-source API, platform & interface.
    Or facebook is allowed to use linux for all the hosting for their closed-source dystopian nightmare. "cloud" is many times worse than closed source that at least runs on your machine.

            You're right that systemD is fubar but a exploit bounty will still have positive effects.

    Why doesn't Microsoft, a billion dollar corporation with some of the best talent in the industry, simply have a team of employees working on FOSS bug fixes?

        And that's a good thing given how pervasive and destructive Rust shills have been to free software.

      A trillion dollar worth corporation. Trillion. That's bigger than the worth of several nations.

      Sorry, can't afford to pay actual programmers, though. Can only hire Indians who have no idea how to fix anything other than copy/pasting JS Electron shit from stack overflow and asking chatGPT to generate newer code

      They hoarded those trillions by NOT paying programmers. Why pay for the cow when you can get the milk for free?

      the writing style, not that's in indian per-se, it could be one of many esl's, it's just that microsoft is well known to have many indians working there

    Dang, Microsoft got that Hiro/mod/janny mindset. Why are "tech minded" "people" like this?

    >Trillion dollar corporations expect free and urgent support from volunteers
    That's kinda bullshit, everyone is in agreement that this is an issue that needs to be fixed quickly, that doesn't suddenly become the result of corporate greed abusing open source volunteers because MS stated the obvious here that a fix is high priority.

      Considering the OS is owned by one of the largest and most powerful companies to ever exist, the arguments seem legit.
