Custom subtitles on Netflix's web player

Netflix users, check out this post on my personal domain regarding how to load custom subtitles into Netflix's web player. Turns out that someone's discovered a hidden feature that allows one to load any W3C Timed Text subtitle file, and with a bit of Python scripting (which, in turn, I've ported from a Windows PowerShell script), it's possible to convert SubRip files from around the 'net into the necessary format.

I may be watching a lot more streaming movies now... ^_^
