how do you get vlc to display subtitles?

posted in Subtitles, viewed 376k times Page 4 of 6« first 1 2 [4] 6 last »

first get the encoding of the SRT(subtitle) file that allows it to be read well in arabic
to get that
open the SRT (subtitle) file with internet explorer
then right click and see the encoding setting, read it and keep in mind to use it later in the next steps
==================================
now go to VLC
i had version 1.1.11
select tools
preferences

subtitles & OSD
adjust default encoding
this time it worked well with Arabic (Windows-1256) reply

I meant to say thanks to MarcC:

3. Check to see if your subtitle font renderer is configured properly in VLC (Tools -> Preferences, click “All” at the bottom left, then go to Video -> Subtitles/OSD), the Text Rendering module should be set to “Freetype2 font renderer” (I initially changed this to “Dummy font renderer function” to avoid that annoying font cache rebuilding prompt, that was a mistake...). reply
