  • Subtitles position

    Hi,

    I watch movies on laptop. If a movie is full screen then I set Aspect Ratio so that black bar is there. Version 3, subtitles use to appear on black bar and I liked it. Version 5, subtitles appear on the movie. It would be good, if subtitles appear on the black bar.

    Regards

    What movie did you playback? Please specify so that we can find on our side for testing.
    What is the resolution of your laptop?

      HI,

      I think, it's version 5 behavior that subtitles appear on the movie and not black bars. It would be good if the behavior is like version 3 i.e if there is a black bar then subtitles should appear on the black bar and not on the movie.

      Its doesn't matter, movie, songs, programs, events, resolution, format, laptop resolution, etc. Its simple... any/all medias played with version 3, if there is a black bar the subtitles appear on the black bar. And any/all medias played with version 5, if there is a black bar the subtitles appear on the movie.

      Just play any video with subtitle and black bar, if there is no black bar then choose any aspect ratio, and play with version 3 and 5, you will see subtitles appear on the movie in version 5 and on the black bar in the version 3.

      I forgot to mention, I mean soft coded or external subtitles.

      Regards

            Attached are the screenshots. Sorry, I forgot to mention that when I make the subtitles smaller then subtitles appear on video with player 5, subtitles appear fine with player 3 i.e on black bar.

            I keep the subtitles size at the lowest 16. Subtitles still appear the default i.e bigger size. I rightclick on the movie, select subtitle settings and simply click ok and subtitles appear smaller size. This I have to do everytime to watch with smaller subtitles. It seems the subtitles size selection setting doesn't work. If I select size 16 then subtitles should appear in that size but subtitles still appear the default size.

                            Latest fab player 5020, subtitle still appears on the video.

                            I think there should be an option to position and move the subtitle. I am trying a media player. It has an option to position the subtitle on top or bottom of the video and move it up, down, right and left. For ex- I am watching a video and it has the black bars. The external subtitle is displaying on the video. I can display the subtitle on the black bars by pressing the hotkey combination i.e suppose the hotkey combination to move the subtitle down is ctrl + d, I can hold ctrl and press d to move the subtitle down, press d again to move it down more, press d again to move it down more..........

                            Similarly the player has the hotkey combination for increasing/decreasing the subtitle font size. Fab player's lowest subtitle font size is 16 and the subtitle font is bigger than normal on 16 too.

                            You should add such options in Fab player to improve the usability and enhance the player.

                              I will pass this as a feature request to our product manager. Thank you for your feedback.
