What's the point of failing in "collect WebSRT cue voice and text"?

Comment 1 Philip J├Ągenstedt 2010-09-26 10:20:44 UTC
Special cases like this are mostly annoying for implementors and authors, so there should be a good reason for it. IMO, it would be simpler to just handle empty cues. Someone will eventually try to use empty cues for some metadata purpose and even if that's easy to work around, it's better to simply have it work.

I'll fix this when I fix the voices feature in bug 10320.
