mplayer subtitle problem


I installed mplayer and it works perfect. But my problem is subtitles. I do have subtitle files but -sub <file name> stuff just doesnt show subtitles. What would be the problem. What should I try?

Hi perdesiz,
try looking at the output (running the program in terminal).
There might be a problem with fonts (or another error for that matter).
If you cant make sense of it, post it here, I will be glad to help.

good luck,

Hi perdesiz,
from the output you posted:
font: can't open file: /root/.mplayer/font/font.desc
font: can't open file: /usr/local/share/mplayer/font/font.desc

mplayer does not seem to find your fonts. (you can test this by pressing "o" in mplayer while watching a video. This should display information on the time the video has been running. If it doesnt, there is no font installed.)
Have you tried downloading and installing a font for your subtitles? If so, mplayer seems to have problems recognizing / finding it.

From what I can tell, this should solve your problem. Post back if there is still anything not working.

Good luck,
- drowstar

Why are you running MPlayer as root?

Hm, yes, I didnt even notice that.
XavierP is of course right. Not only is this dangerous and the typical yada-yada, but it may also be part of your problem. Try running mplayer as a normal user (as you always should). solving the problem for root may not solve it for everyday use.

Thanks XavierP for pointing that out,
