I have uploaded the video on Youtube, added the subtitles, but the users don't realize, that they can turn them on.

I know there is particular URL parameter for embedded player, but it doesn't work for youtube.com itself. I have tried out


and it turns the page in german, but does not turn the subtitles on.

How can I force youtube to use subtitles on youtube.com itself?
