#556 closed defect (duplicate)

subtitles are wrongly displayed

In 1.0pre8 subtitles are wrongly displayed.
I use cp1250 encoded subtitles and have cp1250 encoded font in ~/.mplayer/font
but Mplayer 1.0pre8 displays it wrongly e.g.:
"¿cis¿ej czo¿ówce" instead of "¶cis³e¶ czo³ówce" => "¶" and "³" are replaced
with "¿"
"ekscytuj¿ce" instead of "ekscytuj±ce" => "±" is replaced with "¿"
"¿¿ó³todziób" instead of "¿ó³todziób" => additional "¿"
"obj¿¿" instead of "obj±³" => "±" and "³" are replaced with "¿"

there are no such problems with 1.0pre7try2

You need a font that supports UTF-8. There should be script in one of these
bugzilla bugs that can fix your font, or just use an appropriate ttf font.

Why would I need UTF-8 font if subtitles are encoded in cp1250?

Are you saying that now setting font in ~/.mplayer/font is no longer valid?
