> I have a question about the format for cues. It looks like currently, GStreamer subtitle plugins generate text with Pango markup. We could just parse that in WebKit and generate cues, but it seems like it may be easier to have GStreamer output WebVTT. I think we could do that by setting caps on our text appsink for text/vtt, and presumably vttenc would be pulled in if necessary. Then we could probably use the same parser the out-of-band tracks use. Does doing that make sense?

It makes sense I think. However I'm not sure how webvttenc would be "pulled in automatically". I need to read your patch again but it's quite big :)
