It should be possible to add subtitles to .mkv. The way this works is that it would be an additional part, using the .srt file that we can (I believe) download separately at the moment. But it would be neater to have them contained as part of the main .mkv instead of rattling around separately. Displaying these subtitles is an option of the player.
