    MPlayer 1.0rc1 not load TTF

    I have installed:


    Until latest yum -y update all worked OK, but. From today morning mplayer won't load truetype fonts for subtitle display.

    Settings in ~/.mplayer/config that worked yesterday, today not work. Instead of Myriad Pro Condensed, mplayer loads some (default?) font that is wide (I think that is DejaVu), and ignore even if I specify mplayer -font /home/urke/.mplayer/myriad.ttf movie.avi.

    Do anyone else have this problem? What can be solution to this work again?

    And, yes, myriad.tty IS in my ~/.mplayer dyrectory, readable. There is no any warrning or error, just font is not loaded, not displayed. Mplayer is linked to freetype library:

    [urke@urosevic Ignition]$ ldd /usr/bin/mplayer |grep freetype
   => /usr/lib/ (0x00d48000)
    [urke@urosevic Ignition]$ ll /usr/lib/
    [urke@urosevic Ignition]$ ll /usr/lib/
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 21 Dec 10 23:10 /usr/lib/ ->
    Help me please. TIA

    Try the commands in the first post of this thread. High chance it's related.

    Now, try to reproduce the error. And then, copy the entire terminal content inside this thread as a new post.

    Try disabling your screensaver, but I doubt that will help. And try this:

    Thumbs up Solved!

    Thanks man. That is it. fontconfig is compiled so subfont.ttf have not effect, but this help:
    mplayer -font 'Myriad Pro Cond' movie.avi
    Now I put in ~/.mplayer/config this:
    font = 'Myriad Pro Cond'
    And now mplayer use Myriad Pro Cond for OSD font.

    Thanks a lot!
