Summary 0001516: multiple DCP text track files (CCAP) needs some cleaning up

Description

I know this currently is a rare demand, but...

When I add two SRT files and create a DCP text track for both in order to create a DCP with two different language CCAP tracks, there are a number of issues with it:

  • when creating the DCP, a warning is given, that overlapping text tracks are not allowed. I can still choose to create the DCP.

DCP-o-matic seems to create seemingly proper DCPs in both Interop and SMPTE, but, isn't it so that more than one CCAP track is only allowed in SMPTE?

  • When opening the DCP, the player exhibits a programming error (both Interop and SMPTE)

  • I was actually trying to provoke the situation that the players needs to offer a selection of the specific track file to be displayed in CCAP monitor. That functionality is needed in dcp-o-matic main as well.

So, a bit of tweaking is needed. No good deed goes unpunished...
