Ability to choose subtitles
It would be nice to be able to configure which subtitle track to use for the vlc plugin in the WebUI.
Pretty annoying with finnish subs when I am swede and it is not even possible to turn them of.
Here are some examples how it is done:
So it is just about adding another parameter and burping it out in the player window.

I have spent the evening to find out how it works...
I have found out that the stream has to be started before it is possible to determine if we have subtitles, which ones and then set the one we want.
Then the question is how it should work in Tvheadend.
Either we can add another combo box to the player window in case the stream has subtitles. Or we can add a config parameter and then try to set that one if it is possible. Then we don't bloat the player window. I would prefer the later one.
What do you think?

This is my suggestion about how it should be done.
I turning the subtitles off by default. Then I have added a button to cycle through the available subtitles including turning them off again. Also the active subtitles is shown in the video window for short moment so you know what you have chosen.
Only thing missing is an icon for the button, maybe it should be a "T"?
