#480 closed defect (fixed)

gmplayer complains about missing default.sub

Reported by: goetz.waschk@… Owned by: reimar
Priority: normal Component: GUI
Version: HEAD Severity: normal

Reproduced by developer: Analyzed by developer:


gmplayer creates an error box saying "Failed to open ~/.mplayer/default.sub"
when viewing movie without subtitles.
This is probably because of this (excerpt from mplayer.1):
"Assuming that /path/to/movie.avi is played, MPlayer searches for sub


in this order:

A workaround is to
# touch ~/.mplayer/default.sub
but this is silly. The error box should be disabled.

This is with the Mandriva package of MPlayer CVS 20060403.

Disabling subtitle autoloading (sub_auto_load = "no" in gui.conf) is a workaround.
