Page Info ▸ Media should also display subtitles files (SRT, WebVTT)


(Firefox :: Page Info Window, enhancement)

Steps to reproduce:

If you look at videos like this one which consists in an HTML5 video with SRT files that are displayed through a javascript polyfill (it could also be a WebVTT file served through a javascript polyfill or natively when browsers will be able to handle the HTML5 track element see Bug 629350 for Firefox) you will see that Page Info ▸ Media displays video files but not subtitles files.
Info ▸ Media should display subtitles files like video files.
Note that Universal Subtitles also use Javascript to display subtitles.
Thanks in advance

I assume the page you're referring to is ?

If so, it doesn't use the <track> element. If so doesn't use the track element; it loads and displays the srt files directly. I don't think it makes sense for the Page Info to list XHR requests just because they happen to be media files.

However, it does make sense for Page Info::Media to display <track> sources it's using.

Hi, now that video and track elements, including new media controls, are in good shape, maybe it would be the good time to look at that bug ? 
Media panel already lists images, sounds and videos : what about substitles used for the track element ?
