Description

OSD/SUBTITLE OPTIONS

NOTE: Also see −vf expand.

−ass (FreeType? only)

Turn on SSA/ASS subtitle rendering. With this option, libass will be used for SSA/ASS external subtitles and Matroska tracks. You may also want to use −embeddedfonts.

---> snip end

find "-emdeddedfonts" in page failed, no description of the parameter

Is the parameter description missing or is the above ref. obsolete?

done additional research -- fund:

−(no)embeddedfonts (FreeType? only)

Enables extraction of Matroska embedded fonts (default: disabled). These fonts can be used for SSA/ASS subtitle rendering (−ass option). Font files are created in the ~/.mplayer/fonts directory.

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

The option description exists, even though it is slightly inconsistent. I shall fix that.

  • Cc Reimar.Doeffinger@… added

The description is also outdated, with newer freetype no files need to be created (and none are created) and in this case -embeddedfonts it is enabled by default.

The description is also outdated, with newer freetype no files need to be
created (and none are created) and in this case -embeddedfonts it is enabled by
default.

Ummm, this is what the manual page says:

.B \-embeddedfonts (FreeType? only)
Enables extraction of Matroska embedded fonts (default: disabled).
These fonts can be used for SSA/ASS subtitle
rendering (\-ass option).
Font files are created in the ~/.mplayer/\:fonts directory.
.br
.I NOTE:
With FontConfig? 2.4.2 or newer, embedded fonts are opened directly from memory,
and this option is enabled by default.

Is there something missing from this description?

Just done a formal check: Search the online page for any reference of this "fonts"
directory - zero ditto for the Online ODS chapter of the manual --> zero

-subfont : Is this an jet undocumented new option?

The command line parser of the OS/2 build/port (based on SVN R23689)does accept this option,
an port built in Feb 2007 comes up with an invalid option

No, I just missed the "NOTE:" part, despite the fact the I knew it should be there.

And -subfont was promised to be documented in May already but it seems the responsible developer forgot about it. I wrote a reminder.
