Hi Charly,

There's a list of open bugs for the Video Player here:

There are lots of fairly simple bugs there you can start with. One other interesting idea might be to add support for parsing and displaying captions in .SRT format, which will be compatible with subtitles and captions from Universal Subtitles, YouTube, etc.

You'll probably need to file a new JIRA ticket for the work, but it's definitely related to this existing ticket:

Heidi can point you to the "Rosetta Stone" caption converter source code, too, which might give you some interesting ideas for handling multiple formats.

Hope this helps,
