Problem with loading subtitles

Reported by: bozydarek Owned by: beastd
Priority: normal Component: undetermined
Version: 1.3 Severity: normal
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Reproduced by developer: no Analyzed by developer: no


Summary of the bug:

Quite funny bug. Folder structure:

├── Movie.mp4
└── Movie.txt

File contains subtitles (in English).
File Movie.txt contains subtitles (in my native language).

If I try to start mplayer it stuck on loading subtitles (and use 100% of one CPU core). If I remove or rename Movie.txt it works normally and if I add flags -noautosub -sub it's works too.

How to reproduce:

% mplayer Movie.mp4

Of course I stop it using SIGINT. After couple of minutes.

Hi! Thank you for reporting the issue.

Unfortunately I am not able to reproduce the problem.

Could you try to find out if the issue is related to the contents of Movie.txt?

E.g. try to play the file with only the Movie.txt file in the same folder.

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

Apparently it was my fault. On the end of subtitle file (Movie.txt) there was bunch of Chinese characters (I don't know why, and I don't check it earlier). Sorry for that.

Edit: There is some problem with this file encoding. Actually I can access it without any problems only with console programs like vim.

Could you provide the subtitle file that caused the problem for you?

Or maybe a trimmed version that still triggers the issue.
