I can change the size through the Kodi settings alright and see the result at my videos (so I am sure I am not using external subtitle engine), but when I change the font to some other truetype font I've put on AppData\Roaming\Kodi\media\Fonts\ it still show up Arial.
I even replaced the c:\Program Files (x86)\Kodi\media\Fonts\arial.ttf file with the font of my choice (overwriting the original and naming it again as arial.ttf) and still it was displaying Arial at subtitles.
For the record, I am trying the trebuc.ttf font (Trebuchet MS) that was bundled with Windows.

What am I doing wrong?
Does anybody else have the same problem?

I am using the latest version of aracnoz.
Thanks in advance.
This will not really solve the internal subs styling, but I would suggest to use the *awesome* feature added by aracnoz, that enable the native use of xy-vsfilter on dsplayer.

On filtersconfig.xml add the guid from the xy-vsfilter:
PHP Code:
<!-- // adding xy-vsfilter from -->
<!-- // http://code.google.com/p/xy-vsfilter/ or http://www.cccp-project.net/ -->
    
<filter name="xyvsfilter" type="subs">
      <
guid>{9852A670-F845-491B-9BE6-EBD841B8A613}</guid>
      <
osdname>xy-VSFilter</osdname>
    </
filter

On mediasconfig.xml add the <subs filter="xyvsfilter" /> tag into the <rules> you want, for example:

PHP Code:
<!-- // Full lav config, with xy-vsfilter for  the subs. -->
<!-- // I believe those are the default names that comes with the dsplayer installer. -->
    
<rule filetypes="mkv|mp4">
      <
source filter="lavfsplitter" />
      <
splitter filter="lavf_splitter" />
      <
audio filter="lavaudiodec" />
      <
video filter="lavvideodec" />
      <
subs filter="xyvsfilter" />
    </
rule


And this is the one I use, so the subs gets beautifully clear, even on SD content (I also added ffdshow raw filter on filtersconfig):
PHP Code:
<!-- // Haali for source, lav for decoding, ffdshow-raw for simple upscaling to 1080p -->
<!-- //  and then xy-vsfilter for printing the subs on the upscaled video -->
    
<rule filetypes="mkv|mp4">
      <
source filter="haali" />
      <
splitter filter="lavf_splitter" />
      <
audio filter="lavaudiodec" />
      <
video filter="lavvideodec" />
      <
subs filter="xyvsfilter" />
      <
extra>
        <
extra filter="ffdshowrawvideo" />
      </
extra>
    </
rule

And after that, when you play something, you will notice the xy-vsfilter tray icon, where you can click and change the default styling as you want.
If you use dsplayer on a single screen setup, you may need to exit full screen mode to be able to see the tray...



BTW, just noticed that aracnoz ported dsplayer to 14.0 beta4.
Really thanks aracnoz! Big Grin

But you will need to install xy-vsfilter software and not only apply these filters, correct?
