Comment (by werrel3):

 I raised this VLC bug https://trac.ffmpeg.org/ticket/5641 about vlc not
 displaying webvtt subtitles correctly. It turned out to be youtube-dl not
 correctly embedding the subtitles (https://github.com/ytdl-org/youtube-
 dl/issues/16338) due to ffmpeg using the wrong ID for webvtt subtitles in
 MKV files.
