I installed VLC 2.1.0 and codecs using Packman repo. Works fine except
subtitles for matroska files aren't displayed. Tried several videos and
different subtitles. In openSUSE 12.3 with same VLC version and same files the
subtitles are displayed. Default VLC settings were used for both (subtitles are
enabled at settings). I'm using openSUSE 13.1 RC2.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Add Packman repo:
2. Install vlc-qt, suggested packages, some matroska video file (.mkv) and
subtitles (.srt) for that.
3. Play file and add the subtitle: Sub titles > Add subtitle file > Choose the
Actual Results:
Subtitles aren't displayed.

Expected Results:
Subtitles should be visible.

I changed system files to use VLC repo. During install of VLC Yast informs that
libavdevice55-2.0-36.1x86_64 needs libswresample0=2.0 but it isn't available
choose to keep the old libswresample0-2.0-36.1x86_64.
