Improved adjustment interface of subtitle sync offset

It would be great to enable an overlay to adjust the subtitle offset.

Currently, you have to open the settings panel and try different settings, closing the settings in between.

I would like to have an overlayed +/- slide, where I could adjust and nudge the setting, while the movie/clip is running, making it easier to see when the sync is in correct.

I have a foreign language TV show where the video/audio are recorded with ad breaks, and the subtitles I could find do not account for the ad breaks, so every time there’s an ad break I need to increase the subtitle time offset by one full minute. Unfortunately, currently the adjustment buttons increment/decrement by 0.25s at a time and don’t respond to press and hold, so I have to monotonously click 240 times for each ad break. It would be nice if we could press and hold the buttons and have the value continuously increase/decrease after a delay.

Another minor suggestion while we’re at it: deciding whether a positive or negative offset is suitable for the situation involves some guesswork for new or occasional users of the subtitle time offset feature. Currently there’s a vast span of nothingness in the adjustment scene of the modal, it would be nice to include a short explanation of which way to go when subtitle is lagging, and vice versa.

Adjusting subtitle offset is not great on Apple TV. First, when you change it, video doesn’t run so I can’t tell if the settings are correct.

Also, only swipes work to adjust. I use an IR remote so right and left buttons should also work (as they do with everything else in infuse) but not here.
