  1. I have this code which overlays a title over video.

    I have specified the path to the font I want to use but ffmpeg isn't finding it. It defaults to Times Roman. It only finds the font I want if the font file is in the same folder as the bat (script) file.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    ffmpeg -y -i C0015.mp4 -filter_complex "[0]split[base][text];[text]drawtext=fontfile="C:\Windows\Fonts\Arial\arial.ttf":text='Testing': fontcolor=ebebeb:fontsize=36*10:box=1:boxcolor=1616eb@1:boxborderw=5:x=(w-text_w)/2:y=(h-text_h)/2,format=yuv422p,fade=t=in:st=2:d=1:alpha=1,fade=t=out:st=7:d=1:alpha=1[subtitles];[base][subtitles]overlay"  -c:a aac  title_output.mp4
    Thank you.

  2. Paths in ffmpeg filters - this has to do with windows escape characters.

    For every colon or backslash, you need another backslash

    This part
    Should look something like this (or add Arial sub folder if you have it there)

  4. side note: using slashes instead of back-slashed might also work,..
