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
subtitles & OSD
adjust default encoding
this time it worked well with Arabic (Windows-1256)
Changin the font. Thanks Trixie for the advice. Stupid bug, must be fixed. Greetings from Argentina.
hi, i have a problem with subtitles as well, but as i understood this is because when i download substitles my computer see it as .rar and not as .srt so it cant be read at the moovie, so can anyone help me about that? :)
Finally, a useful advice. Thanks a lot!
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...).
Thanks a lot
thanks very much it works with me
