Very complex since there 2 things to implement:
 - Text subtitles support via webvtt
 - Image subtitles support by decoding, blending subtitles in the image and re-encoding

For the text subtitle support, someone created a working PoC: https://code.videolan.org/videolan/vlc-android/issues/502#note_45323

Now it need to be integrated in VLC
