Re: Omxplayer won't play subtitles from MY rips.

Try XBMC. Omxplayer can only display text-based subtitles, which you can extract from image-based ones using http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SubRip.

Re: omxplayer subtitles are poorly rendered.

The cleanest way of introducing word wrapping into the current code, is to base it on the character count. The maximum length of a line can be specified on the command line, so there is no need to try to calculate what a good maximum may be. People even have different preferences (I prefer 40, regar...

Re: omxplayer subtitles are poorly rendered.

You can get the latest version here: http://omxplayer.sconde.net/ Use the character count for deciding when to break lines. It will work well enough since you're not trying to perfectly justify the lines, you just want to make sure their lengths are reasonable. Actually, the function should take and...

Re: omxplayer subtitles are poorly rendered.

I don't think we need a sample file to demonstrate that there is need for word wrapping with certain files. If you want, you can write a function that takes a vector of strings and returns a wrapped vector of strings, and I'll do the necessary plumbing inside omxplayer to integrate it.

Omxplayer has options for font and font size, and --no-ghost-box disables black boxes.

Re: OMXplayer and Arabic Subtitles

It seems that XBMC supports proper Arabic shaping through libass for SSA subtitles. If you want, you can submit a feature request for simple reversing (trivial to implement) or shaping (more work) for omxplayer at https://github.com/popcornmix/omxplayer/issues.

Re: OMXplayer and Arabic Subtitles

The default font Free Sans does not include the Arabic Unicode block. On Debian, the omxplayer options

Code: Select all

--font /usr/share/fonts/truetype/freefont/FreeSerif.ttf --italic-font /usr/share/fonts/truetype/freefont/FreeSerifItalic.ttf
will set the font to Free Serif, which does include Arabic characters.

Re: omxplayer ass subtitles

Omxplayer can only render plain-text subtitles, but attempts to convert embedded SSA subtitles to plain text and display them. It does not support reading SSA subtitle files.

But if I watch a mp4 or avi with external srt subtitles the special letters do not appear. The Raspbian ...

Between /usr/bin/omxplayer.bin and "[email protected]". The latter forwards the arguments you pass to the script.

The omxplayer file is just a shell script starting omxplayer.bin, so you can put arguments like -o hdmi in there.
