How to use:
The shortcut to adjust timing is set to ctrl+w by default.
Edit your input.conf and bind "sub-step 1" and "sub-step -1" to two keys, e.g.:
ctrl+z sub-step -1
ctrl+x sub-step 1
Start the video, and manually synchronize the first subtitle to audio (waiting
for someone to speak and then selecting the right subtitle with ctrl+z/ctrl+x
works best). Then hit ctrl+w to mark the first point. Go on to a later time
where someone speaks, and synchronize the right subtitle again. Then hit ctrl+w
again to mark this as the second point. The script will choose a sub-delay
and sub-speed value that makes the two points you marked show the subtitles
as you timed them when hitting the shortcut.
Technically, this assumes:
sub_time = (vid_time - sub_delay) / sub_speed
which is probably what mpv does internally. Using two points in time, we can
compute the required sub_delay and sub_speed to get to the two points to display
the 2 subtitle events at the marked times with the same delay.
