As is known that hard subtitles and soft subtitles are distinctive: hard subtitles is one part of the videos and displayed usually at the bottom of the video images, on the contrary, soft subtitles is an independent part because it is totally separated from the videos, so we can play, pause and stop soft subtitles during playing videos.
