Default Right to left subtitles support

First of all, i'd like to thank bsplayer developers for adaptin this great player for Android! It's without a doubt the best video player for Android, by far!
one problem though, that i hope could be fixed, is right-to-left subtitles support.
When watching videos with subtitles that are in right-to-left (such as hebrew), the punctuation order is messed up, appearing in opposite side of the sentence - for example, question mark that's supposed to appear in the end of the sentence appears in the beginning and so on.

If you could fix that it would be much appreciated by a lot of users!

I was wondering if any progress was made on the RTL subtitles issue.
Here is hebrew subtitles using ISO 8859-8 encoding.

We will check what we can do. Which Android OS do you use?

The issue happens with all players on Android. The only player that handles subtitles well is XBMC for android.

P.S.
Love the new lan feature

I've decided to do a little research and I believe i've found the problem.

The hebrew subtitles are provided in LTR format not RTL.

Is there any chance you can add encoding for LTR in ISO 8859-8.
This can be done quite easily using BIDI encoding packages.
ICU4J 49 for Java
GNU FriBidi - for C++

If i've had the code, i'd do it myself :) 10 years of software development.

Hopefully you can add this support.
Please let me know if there something i could do to help.
