AW: [MPlayer-users] NODAEMON subtitle fonts

no, i am using the command line mplayer without the gui, the font i
installed is just the arial package available on the website. the
subtitles i was trying were both english and german, i tried various
DVDs. i think the format is VOB.

the strange thing is, there is actually no difference between the
subtitles mplayer was using before and after installing the OSD. reading
the documentary i got the impression that OSD subtitles should be
displayed after pressing 'o' ?
i only get subtitles working with the -slang or -sid option. i also got
the impression that mplayer should start using the font selcted for the
OSD as subtitle font right away, but maybe i got that wrong.
thanks for any further advice!

   Can you tell (post it here) what subtitles format do you use, what 
   language and codepage?
   Then, it could be interesting what font do you use - TTF or bitmap.
   As I can see, you are talking about GUI mplayer, gmplayer, right?
