When using ffmpegX to author a DVD from an mpeg and an .srt file, as I;ve frequently done in the past, I now get the followin g error message in the Progress Info window:
INFO: Converting filenames to US-ASCII
INFO: Detected subtitle file format: subviewer
INFO: Opened iconv descriptor. *UTF-8* *ISO-8859-1*
INFO: Read 749 subtitles
INFO: Adjusted 21 subtitle(s).
ERR: New_Face failed. Maybe the font path is wrong.
Please supply the text font file (Arial.ttf).
WARN: subtitle font: load_sub_face failed.
The font is definitely there, in both my system library's font folder and my user library's font folder. There's no indication it's corrupted. Could there be a permissions problem? This never happened before I migrated old files from an old to a new machine.
Any advice on how to fix this? Thanks!

I had this error some time ago with an older version. It worked under the admin account I used to install ffmpegX, but it didn't work for a different, non-admin account, because some program parts had been installed into the admin home folder. Search for hidden folders there (starting with a .) that are not on the normal users's home folder. Also search for the arial.ttf with a program like FileBuddy when logged in as admin. That's how I found out about the hidden folders.
In the latest version however, it seems these folders are gone, so maybe a fresh install will solve the problem.
