It would be superb if gaupol supported WebVTT out-of-the-box, even if not in its full generality, since this is one of the formats that we can expect other software/hardware to support and gain adoption, due to the W3 Consortium formalizing it.
Thanks for maintaining gaupol as one excellent subtitle editor,
P.S.: Subtitles served via Youtube already are downloaded in WebVTT and youtube-dl converts them to srt via ffmpeg, an external tool.
I had not heard of WebVTT before, but it sure sounds important.
There is some weird stuff indeed like comments and cue identifiers, editing of which won't be supported, but I think I should be able to preserve them as-is, so that opening a file and saving it would not destroy anything.
I should probably manage to do this sometime in the near term.
Basic support for WebVTT is done.
Feel free to test. I'll make a new release maybe in a week or so.
