#11661 new enhancement
MediaPlayer Subtitles font size (easy)
|Reported by:||bipolar||Owned by:||stippi|
- It would be nice if there was a way to choose the size/style/family of the font used for the subtitles. Specially the size, as the current options (even "Large") are all too small, at least for a 1920x1080 24" Monitor (when used as a TV, ie: some meters away from the screen).
- Also, support for text encodings others than UTF-8 would be nice, as plenty of subtitle websites use Latin-1 as the default encoding.
(I'm using x86_gcc2 hrev47322)

I am new to Haiku and I want to take this issue up as a part of my Summer Outreachy'19 application.
Currently there are options for the subtitle size to be
Large. I am planning to change the current
BOptionPopUp to have integer font sizes instead of the current ones and change the font size of the subtitle accordingly.

May I suggest to make it similar to how fonts are set in the Appearance prefs, i.e. font family/style in in a pop-up menu and the size with a BSpinner?

Yes sure. I'll look into it.
Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
Different encodings are now supported (and automaticall detected - see hrev51192). Leaving the issue open for the custom/larger font size.
