Description

hi
Good day to you,
I have a problem with Arabic subtittle in mkv files.
The letters Should be like this:
مرحبا
but in showtime it:
ا ب ح ر م
the letters should be joined and start from right to left.
In attachment There is mkv video with arabic subtittle and Jpg image for the subtittle from my pc.
I hope you fix the issue.
Thank you and best regard

To join letters you need to install Arialuni.ttf or any other font that has proper arabic glyphs. About order of the text - decoder should be reworked to support R2L. That is WIP AFAIK.
