`subfont' program renders antialiased OSD and subtitle fonts for mplayer.
What you get are bitmap and alpha *.raw files and a font.desc.
What you need is TrueType, Type 1 or any other font supported by FreeType.
Alpha channel is created using outline and Gaussian blur filters
(set radius with --blur and --outline options).
ANY encoding is now supported! That is, all 8-bit encodings known by libc
and user-supplied encodings (also multibyte) through custom encoding files.
I prepared also Type 1 font `osd.pfb' for OSD characters based on bitmaps
created by chass.
Subfont was tested with Korean fonts from truetype-fonts-ko-2.0-1k.noarch.rpm
I found on http://rpmfind.net/ and euc-kr encoding.  Custom encoding file
for euc-kr was generated from charmap I found in /usr/share/i18n/charmaps/EUC-KR.gz
(glibc package).  This should work with -unicode switch for mplayer
(though it is not Unicode).  It took about 14 seconds to render over 8000 characters on P3
@ 600MHz.
