I have problem with subtitle in persian/Farsi on all good video players, i have tested all reading options formats (all different area and language to read), but all did not work, I can type Farsi, but it can not show subtitle to Farsi. Can you help me, Thanks.
If you have VLC maybe I can help you. Go to VLC 1: Click Tools and next Preferences 2: Click Subtitle & OSD 3: In section Subtitle Language and Default encoding 4: selected Arabic (Windows-1256) 5: In section font selected Tahoma font
UTF-8 may answer, too.
I've experienced this before, and I found it's because of subtitles' font, use Subtitle Editor to edit your subtitle's font!
you can get Subtitle Editor two ways, Download from it's house http://home.gna.org/subtitleeditor/ or, download via PPA.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install subtitleeditor
Right click on subtitle -> open with -> Subtitle Editor, now Tools -> Style Editor, and there you can change your subtitle's font.
