The SubPLY system is for kaltura's open source flash based solution. The 
ogg based solution is different... Any solution deployed on wikimedia 
projects should of course be open source...
Clearly more work is to be done on multi-lingual support but you can see 
an example of non-congress-video wiki-timed-text on the public prototype 
site: http://prototype.wikimedia.org/sandbox/Stream:Explain_editing
