Display available subtitles in thumbnail
Closed, ResolvedPublicFeature

Description

Problem: Some people really prefer, or need even, subtitles in order to find videos useful. Some to the extent that they don't even click videos since they so rarely have subtitles.

Suggestion: When there is a subtitle available, make an icon revealing the existence of subtitles directly in the thumbnail.

I've made a small example of this. It's not yet finished, as it still needs some i18n labels.
