Cannot get subtitles to work in Xine for .avi files
« on: November 29, 2011, 06:03:14 am »
Ok, So I followed the directions in the wiki and I did a search on this forum and still I cannot get subtitles to work.
Here is what I've done.
First: make sure that the subtitle file is named correctly and in the same directory as the .avi file.
File Name : movie.avi
Subtitle: movie.avi.sub

Second: Make sure to uncomment the following lines in the xine.conf file on the MD where I'm playing the movie.(I also made the same change on the core)
gui.subtitle_autoload: 1
misc.spu_subtitle_size: large

Did a full regen on the MD.

Still no change.

I booted into the core and ran Xine from the desktop and loaded the .sub file and everything was working with no problem.
What am I doing wrong?

Core: Broken :(

Maybe your subtitles are to low on the screen so you don't se them. Try the misc.spu_subtitle_size line, i myself use an offset of 30.
misc.spu_subtitle_size: 30


Best regards, Daniel
