Description

Hi,

white is not a very good color for subtitle. If you have some very pale scene, or some white writing at the bottom of the screen, subtitle becomes unreadable.
My advice is a pale white-grey-yellow color like #F9F5AF or so, with a little black border of 1 or 2px.

Those example or a waaaayyyyy too much yellow but that the spirit

My Idea is better :P the program it self shouldn't change the color or the size of the Subtitle :P
Like he should make the program see how the subtitle font the embedded one or the srt one adjusted some people adjust the font color or make like a shadow behind it in the srt it self or the video with the subtitle like the srt file has something like this in it and it should just see the colors or anything made with the numbers and apply it so you see it the best way with something like shadow or color or anything ^,^
<font color="#DD0000"> Exaaaample <font color="#FFFBF0">

if it just sees this as a color in the video the subtitle will be the best :P

i hope you are going to read this Andreas Oman and Apply it to the program and Yu ARE THE BEST!!! we all love you, you changed the ps3 and made it the best media player in the world! xD

Hehehee Dont forget to thank me for the ideaaa~~~~~~~~~

Hope you understood everything CoZ i Reaaaly suck at Explaining! :O

Did you ever use SSA/ASS sub ? Because its what you said, (and better) and exists since loooonnnnggg time.

SRT != SSA/ASS and its showed like it is, with default program sub option. If those option can be change it s a big plus, but the default option should be good first.

I'm working on a new subtitle rendering code that can do outline and soft dropshadows on text
