Re: omxplayer won't render subtitles

There is probably not enough GPU memory available. You can try changing your memory split, or download this version https://github.com/torarin/omxplayer/downloads, which uses less memory.

Re: python3-tk app to show TVstreams via rtmpdump/omxplayer

Looks good! If you want, you can play rtmp streams without piping from rtmpdump. If you compile FFmpeg with librtmp enabled, you can specify rtmpdump options within the file path, e.g. "rtmp://someurl live=1 playpath=stream1". This prebuilt omxplayer package has librtmp enabled: https://github.com/t...

Re: About external .srt subtitles in omxplayer

Ok, kind-of auto-conversion code is pretty much ready! It's a little rough, since it relies on current system's locale to guess the subtitle's language, if it is in another encoding than unicode. I did a little "research" for other (more clever) methods, but frankly, I don't think that it would wor...

Re: About external .srt subtitles in omxplayer

I would be glad to but since it was created mostly for personal use, the code currently just assumes a greek encoding (either windows1253 or iso88597) as the subtitles encoding, if it is not already utf8, and treats it accordingly. It was meant to be a quick and dirty method, so it doesn't try hard...

Re: About external .srt subtitles in omxplayer

Thank you very much for implementing this addition! I had resorted to quick-coding a little launcher for the player in C to do this automatically (while also encoding non-UTF-8 subs to UTF-8 on the fly), but having it implemented natively (plus with lower memory needed) is much better! :) Perhaps y...

Re: About external .srt subtitles in omxplayer

Here is a new version that uses a smaller surface (and consequently works fine with 64 MB of GPU memory) and automatically loads subtitle files with the same name as the video:

Re: About external .srt subtitles in omxplayer

A couple of questions: Would it be difficult to implement other encodings apart from UTF-8? That would make many .srt files compatible (for example, iso-8859-7 and windows-1253 showed up as garbage) without re-saving the file in a different encoding. Just a suggestion :) I'll keep it in mind, but t...

Re: About external .srt subtitles in omxplayer

I just tried 192/64, and it fails. What I could do, eventually, is to allocate a smaller buffer at the bottom of the screen, since subtitles usually have less than 3 lines. I don't run a desktop environment, so I haven't had any problems with 128/128. It would be interesting to see if you can find a...

From the log it looks like GPU memory shortage, can you try the 128/128 split? I should probably add an error message for when this happens.
