What works

You can load a new video if nothing is already open, and work with it to some degree.

What does not

  • MPV is the default media player, but automatically installing then using the DLL does not work.
  • Letting the video play to the end using VLC causes hang.
  • Program frequently crashes with no explanation outside of a registry dump.
  • Waveform display is laggy, and no silence line is drawn for audio.
  • Attempting to create a new subtitle file when a video is open causes a crash.
  • Attempting to load a new video when one is already open causes a hang.


  • Using VLC as the video player instead (after installing it manually) made video playback work.
  • Choosing to not remember the last file opened let me start with a new subtitle file.

What was not tested

  • Speech-to-text.
  • Using manually installed MPV.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

I strongly recommend using mono to run this .NET app instead of wine, although spellcheck currently is only working with the wine run.
