Help with Missing Subtitle Display in Mplayer
In the past I installed mplayer through the repository and had no problems with displaying subtitles. I decided to expand my knowledge and keep mplayer up-to-date with subversion. After installing the newest stable release, I get no subtitles. Attached is the mplayer output of the file I am playing. You will notice there are subtitles in the .mkv file. I have also attached my config file for inspection. The subtitles work in VLC, but I want to use mplayer, so "use VLC" is not a solution.
I have a truetype font in the ~/.mplayer directory named subfont.ttf which I copied over from /usr/share/fonts/truetype/msttcorefonts.
Please help me solve my problem. TIA.
