From what I am piecing together from the back and forth so far: I suggest you implement your ideas in a proof of concept (maybe even something that generates VTT code), so it can be tested.

Can't comment on the rest because I don't see the full context. Except for this:

Aaaaaaargh. I'm not sure if this has to do with English not being you native language, but this comes across exceptionally poorly. It is a mix of condescension, passing off opinion as fact and feeling entitled to tell someone else what to work on. I recommend you work on your communication style, as you'll quickly turn people off.
