Lingering Subs

Occasionally the subs linger until the next subtitle appears. This can be seconds to minutes.

For example, in the following DVD clip:

at approximately 7 seconds into the clip, the subtitle "One, two, three, four-" lingers for approximately 30 seconds.

Is there a way to put some kind of a timeout on the subs to stop the lingering? Thanx, Rob

A little more info. I just tested that same clip with Leawo Player, Power DVD 11, VLC Media Player, and XBMC. They all handled the subs without any lingering. Thank you and take care, Rob

@nevcairiel: Any idea to improve the weird behavior on this sample? I'm honestly not sure there is anything we can do, the timings we seem to get from the DVD navigator are really weird...

Should be fixed. Although the timing on those subs is still off, they show up after the audio for them is already over.

Well it's better than nothing, the only thing I could think of is what you did and it's probably all we can do.
