Finally, a new media player ...

I was always fascinated by XBMC. Now there's a device that offers this platform on a box "The Little Black Box" and thank the "fusion" my player is on a different level...

Very nice. I did not find anything about subtitles or closed-captions, so I've sent them an email inquiring about such important features.

Thanks! But that rules out this product as something for me to consider, since I can get CC with either smplayer or VLC, which I prefer when it's available in the video.

You didn't open the link in the OP did you? It's a hardware media player independent of your other devices, including your usual desktop DE.

I know. I did peruse the linked site. But the hardware runs on software that has no information about supporting closed captions, which are very different from subtitles. In fact:

http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=143143

And a search for "xbmc closed captions" turns up nothing that indicates support for CC. Which is a real shame, because it's very good software and the programmers are leaving out a considerable audience by ignoring this feature.

Moved from Multimedia to Off the Wall as not Gentoo-related.
