Mplayer subtitles

I installed mplayer from the source.

The subtitles (srt sub etc, not the subtitles in a DVDvideo) in mplayer are faded and transparent.
In xine they are solid white subtitles.
Is that a characteristic of mplayer or is it my fault ?

Just curious, how did you setup your fonts in MPlayer?

I downloaded the font pack "font-arial-iso-8859-1.tar.bz2" from and placed them in ~/.mplayer/font.
