Two feature requests: first, the code comments say it will choose the sub file with the largest file size for the desired target language. Please reconsider or allow option to change. Using english as an example, the smaller filesize is usually what is wanted because that the "forced"/foreign language translated to english. The larger filesize is usually the closed-captioned subs where there is a lot of non-spoken, descriptive text (ex. "man nods head", "lady licks lips").

Second request- the audio streams are usually tagged with a language. If the user wants subs for a certain language, but the audio is already in that language, default to not displaying subs. This logic should apply to both external file subs as well as built-in subs.

@flipflop Its ordered by alphanumerical order and coincidentally, they ordered in small to large file size (at least the subs I've been using). I added a flag option to reverse it. I also tried implementing the audio logic but some vlc props weren't available when I tried using them. I'll give it a look when I get some time.
