sdvplayer is a tool to help you improve your vocabulary in a foreign language by watching movies with subtitles in that language. It allows you to look up the meaning of a word displayed in the subtitles just by clicking on it. The meaning will be printed right on the screen and the player will be paused. Playing can be resumed just by pressing the space bar. It can play movies in many of the formats supported by libav*. Subrip (.srt), microDVD, and subviewer subtitle formats are supported. The meaning can be looked up through an external command. The built-in dictionary parser can parse the stardict dictionary format.
