Sample moved to sample/sub. But unless someone finds a specification for the
subtitles I doubt it will be implemented. I think someone on the doom9 forums
knows the format, but did not respond to my question.
And I somewhat doubt the metadata is worth the effort of parsing it.

The format is quite simple, though the code could be much easier to understand
if it used more of the ffmpeg framework.
