Default A misguided feature (Remove “Upload subtitles”)

I can’t even wrap my mind around the provision for uploading subtitles in BSPlayer. We should use BSPlayer to create a new subtitles file, then upload it? If 1,000,000 people view a video and upload an associated subtitles file with BSPlayer, what will do with 1,000,000 subtitles files?

“Upload subtitles” belongs in a program like Subtitle Workshop, NOT in BSPlayer.

BSPlayer should provide subtitles proofreading. When we use BSPlayer to view a video and download a subtitles file, we should be able, at any time, to press a hotkey to report an error in the subtitles to the site from which we downloaded the subtitles file.

For a brilliant example of in-program bug / enhancement reporting, see the video game Driftmoon from Finnish developer Instant Kingdom.
