    doesn't work on 2.1, neither on 2.2 (ubuntu 14.04.1)
    maybe because of this https://trac.videolan.org/vlc/ticket/8097

    hope, extension will be fixed

    I have been checking this extension, and it is pretty good, but I would like to do a new approach, which it would be:

    - Play the movie with no subtitles
    - After press a hotkey, come back 5 seconds, activate the subtitles for 5 seconds, and the keep on playing with no subtitles.

    I think it would be an awesome idea. I have been researching a bit, but I cannot find the way.

    Нет пункта Say It Again в меню View. Все скопировал куда нужно.
    В папке VideoLAN\VLC\lua\ папки extensions изначально не было, пришлось создать.

    Нужно было избегать кириллических путей к папке

    использую на Windows 7 32бит, версия vlc 2.05 и 2,06 (пробовал). Выбираю в меню Вид-Say it again. Запускаю фильм и ничего не происходит, окно не открывается. Делал по другому запускаю фильм и выбираю Say it again, появляется надпсь SIA loadding и все окно не появляется(в меню Say it again -Setting выбираю видио останавливается).

    спасибо автору! Помог решить проблему, окозалось:
    1. имя файла фильма и субтитра различались
    2. порядок запуска должен быть такой запускаем фильм потом активируем модуль.
