Hello, my name is Michael Castellón.

I'm writing from Managua, Nicaragua.

I'm new in linux, and I'm interested to use your vast suite of libraries
open source and ffplay for media player.
Compile and run ffplay work very well, but it don't display the subtitles
of the file mkv.

It's possible display subtitles of an mkv in ffplay?
