Package: smplayer Version: 0.6.9-1 Severity: normal Tags: upstream First off, I'm not sure whether that's a smplayer, mplayer or libass (or any combinaison of the above) bug.
Here's the analysis: SMplayer passes a -subcp option to the mplayer process, relative to the user defined setting in Preferences->Subtitles->Encoding. It seems that by default (at least it was for me), this setting is "Western European Languages (ISO-8859-1)". Trying to play /certain/ files (and I can make available such a file) with this configuration triggers the following bug: In smplayer's output console, one can see near the end: [ass] Neither PlayResX nor PlayResY defined. Assuming 384x288 And the subtitles font will appear very large on the screen. Discarding that option (i.e. not specifying any -subcp option) or setting it to the correct value (UTF-8 in this case) makes the bug go away. For a reason that escapes me, it seems that setting an incorrect subcp will confuse libass, making it ignore PlayResX/PlayResY from the ASS stream and thus mess up the subtitle display. Until that bug is fixed, I suggest avoiding to pass -subcp at all (make the setting optional with a checkbox or something...)
