Me neither.  There's a known issue that you cannot select the subtitle
language while watching a recording.  I recorded one short series from
YLE FST that had both Finnish and Swedish subtitles.  When I start
watching the recordings from a random position, I sometimes get Swedish
and sometimes Finnish subtitles.  Both are present in the recording,
perhaps because I have included both languages in the configuration.
