#11137 assigned Bug Report - General

Misformed Captions/subtitles — at Initial Version

Reported by: jens@… Owned by: Jim Stichnoth
Priority: minor Milestone: 32.0
Component: MythTV - Captions Version: Master Head
Severity: medium Keywords: Captions misformed
Cc: Ticket locked: no


I use Mythbuntu 0.25+fixes

I rip my dvd's with Handbrake to m4v or mkv container format using x264 codec. I rip the subtitles for danish - my native language. They are not burned in but rather included as default subtitle in the video file.

When i play back the videos in Mythtv the subtitles are crude to look at and have a thick contrasting frame around each letter.

When i play the same video file in VLC the subtitles are normal and nice to lokk at and easy to read.
