I am running xbmc svn 19733 and i can not get any subtitles to show up that previously did in windows xbmc. I use ubuntu minimal 8.10 and installed xbmc manually.

i think it has something to do with this.

here is my debug log http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/163247/
I think you need the libass. Make sure you have the libass-dev packet.

Anyway, I also having problems with the ASS subtitles when I activated the VDPAU. It recognizes the subtitles but shows them in the terminal. When I deactivate the VDPAU they are ok.
I seem to be having the same issue. Note this is not for all of my movies with subs, this is the first which this is happening to me.

I have Jaunty minimal installed with xbmc-9.04.1-jaunty1 installed, and it seems this movie isn't displaying any subs, even though the menu recognizes all of the subs available, and they are getting decoded to the debug log as the text is spoken, just not onscreen. Any ideas?

this is strange, its happening on a 2nd movie now too, not every movie i own with subtitles.

it looks like the common thing here is that the format below isnt working for me, as shown by mkvmerge -i:

Track ID 5: subtitles (S_TEXT/ASS)

The other movies i have that work are:

Track ID 3: subtitles (S_TEXT/UTF8)

I already have the following installed, but it doesnt seem to help:

ii libass-dev 0.9.5-2 development files for libass
ii libass1 0.9.5-2 library for SSA/ASS subtitles rendering
