Hi Allan,

Great! I noticed the Google player displays English subs by default, is
there any way to change this?

Furthermore - how about redubbing the audio completely? I'd be more than
happy to try this if I knew how (I have all the basic requirements like
supported audiocard, good quality microphone, hardware mixer etc., it's
just the software / encoding part that I need to know more about)...

Thanks, cheers,
