Sub_title: utf8 setting problem
 

Hi

using (Slacko 531)

I'm currently looking at using Jubler to create/edit subtitles. Its a Java app that uses MPlayer to display video.

However I can't get fonts to display correctly. the ''' apostrophes show as box in french and english.

Mplayer standalone shows them as upside-down question marks.

VLC player standalone on the other hand show them correctly.

----

i'm guessing its a UTF8 setting that I've missed somewhere?

---

a work around would be to get Jubler to use VLC for play back, but couldn't find anything on that either.

----

suggestions appreciated, images attached show the problem.

just needed to set encoding to CP1251 (windows) for English not utf8

for French set encoding to CP1252 (windows), but this isn't available in mplayer.

Also, VLC can correctly determine encoding, but Mplayer struggles for some reason.

CP1251 is based on, but not identical to IEC_8859-1-
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO/IEC_8859-1
