Bug Description

If i watch .div movies with external subtitle files (.sub), text change wont work if i use font tool under Totem settings.

I have to hack this if i want to change font size: ~/.gnome2/totem_config

# subtitle size
# { tiny small normal large very large huge }, default: 1

Totem 1.4.0 with Dapper drake. This happend with Breezy also.

Thanks for your bug. Do you use totem-gstreamer or totem-xine?

Eh, im not sure. It says Totem 1.4.0 - uses Streamer 0.10.4

Sebastien Bacher (seb128) wrote :

That's totem-gstreamer. Changing the font works fine for me. Does it work after restarting totem? Is that specific to one video? Do you have an URL to download one example?

It does that with all divx movies with .sub files. It has allways done that.

Example file http://koti.mbnet.fi/oskunoma/test.sub

Eh, there is something fishy going on with my totem. Now texts starts from wrong part of the movie etc. I dont get this.

Okay, i changed to Totem-xine. Issue is back. I see text okay, but font setting isnt working.

I have same problem - can change subtitles size in Settings but with no effect. Totem 1.2.1 with xine-lib 1.0.1 Breezy.

I got exactly the same problem here, I had to edit the totem_config file in order to change the subtitle size: a change in Totem's Preferences produces nothing

Yes, I did the same and it works well now.

I confirm - changing the subtitle font size doesn't take any effect - subtitles are all small whatever font I set.

Using totem-xine, fully updated Dapper.

I get some weird stuff on fonts when using totem-xine too, but I am not sure if its related to this bug.

If I open avi files with subtitles in srt format, everithing works fine (all my options are respected: font size and color, for example).

When I get a DVD, the font looks really bad, like a small font scaled too much and its color goes back to white-black-transparent (which is not what I selected in preferences menu). Any selection I do in font preferences is ignored (font type, size, color, etc)

I tried to change totem config file with no sucess. My settings are just ignored with DVDs, just as when I did it in totem's front end
