Hello, I am currently working on showing closed caption in UWP app.

According to this page, (
Player Framework(PF) does not support showing embedded closed captions in .mkv file, but only MediaElement can be used in this situation.

I have two questions.
  1. Is there any plan to support embedded/in-band closed caption in Player Framework(PF)?
  2. Why does PF not support embedded/in-band closed caption, but MediaElement (which is subset of PF) supports it?
Thanks in advance :)
