I have an .avi from the internet and the accompanying subtitles as .srt file. I don't see no subs in the preview. To make sure I even set the position to 50. On the same note: Can I use subtitles in VCDs? I wouldn't mind if they were har copied into the mpeg, as the movie is letterboxed and leaves enough room in the lower black bar. Or can I encode the video and audio in ffmpegx and use another tool to make a SVCD/VCD with subtitles?
And yes, I rwad everything that was said about subs here...

It's needed to set correct colors, or you can see black letter on black background. Make sure you're also using "Use mplayer to decode" option (Options tab).
I see an error:
font: can't open file: /Users/foo/.mplayer/font/font.desc
font: can't open file: share/font/font.desc
and no subs... sigh...
Have you installed the font package?
You mean the "Subtitles iso-8859-1.pkg"? Sure, I did everything as told in the readme... But I can do that again... (The last two updates only the app itself changed?)
You know what? The installer says:
"Subtitles for MPlayerOSX
This package contains a set of subtitles for use with MPlayerOSX. They will be installed to the directory /usr/local/share/mplayer/font."
But the software searches in:
"font: can't open file: /Users/foo/.mplayer/font/font.desc
font: can't open file: share/font/font.desc "
Maybe that's the problem?
As I wrote just above, the installer talks about "/usr/local/share/mplayer/font." But I can't find even "/usr/local/share/mplayer" after just running the pkg installer
If I look into the pkg I don't see anything I can use...
I already have that for mplayer OS X. Though I'm not sure what the guy meant when he wrote:
"If you have Mplayer OSX copy this file to /usr/local/bin"
"this file"? There is a folder with many files after the download:
all I see in /usr/local/bin is mplayer, where does the "conf" stuff go?
And I see none of the font stuff there
You must use the engines installer application to install it. You only need to select the "mplayer" file. The link I've provided is a different version than the standard one.
Now it seems to work, thx
So is the mplayer you want people to get normally broken?
It seems it work in some cases and doesn't in other cases. It now appears that the stablest mplayer binary is the 03/16/2003 one and I'll change download URLs accordingly.
Will it be possible some day to have real subtitle tracks? Or is there any other software for Mac OS X that can make sub tracks for SVCDs?
The subs are not in synch
Looks as though they run slower then the movie, as far as I can tell. What to do?
