#14864 closed defect (invalid)

mplayer/ subfont.ttf

Reported by: tietze@… Owned by: ecronin (Eric Cronin)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.6.0
Keywords: mplayer font truetype ttf Cc: nox@…


The option of using truetypefonts (TTF) or ~/.mplayer/subfont.ttf as default for subtitles and OSD seem broken. Using bitmap fonts in ~/.mplayer/font works fine.

The method of using a TTF font (as default) is described on, so it seems reasonable to be a default option:

The following error is reported when trying to use the ttf-file:

mplayer -font ./subfont.ttf ./movie.avi

[...] ./subfont.ttf doesn't look like a bitmap font description, ignoring. Cannot load bitmap font: ./subfont.ttf Playing movie.avi.[...]

Regards, Jørgen.

Did you build MPlayer with the +osd variant? This enables the support libraries needed for ttf files.

With the +osd it works flawless - thanks!

Feel stupid that I did not see that option, sorry for bugging you.

I've updated the variant description to make it a bit more accurate.

Maybe +osd should be made default?
