 FFmpeg does not distinguish subtitles from captioning internally.
 Therefore, in real life caption may not = subtitles, in FFmpeg the
 handling for captions = handling for subtitles.

 For example, EIA/CEA-608 has a dedicated CODEC_ID assigned to it, and it
 is considered a subtitle in the
 codec descriptions]. We do not have a dedicated CODEC_ID for CEA-708 yet,
 but we will not distinguish it from subtitles either.
