Default [Bug] Laggy Subtitle Animation

I'm curious if I've made a configuration error somewhere.

My GS4 is able to playback 10bit 720p smoothly but for some reason, animated subtitles (think karaoke) play at something like 5FPS. Is there a switch somewhere I missed that can fix this? I've already tried toggling Hardware Rendering for subtitles.

It's not just you, and it's not device specific. This is a known issue of MX Player. The developer is aware that .ass/ssa subtitle rendering speed isn't optimal. However, MX still has one of the best ass/ssa renderers out there when it comes to ability to render complex styling (the other good subtitle renderer is XBMC for android).

The issue's already on my list that's pinned at the top of the forum.

Thanks for the reply. Yes I've set it to four cores already.

It's not a gamebreaker I guess. Good to know I didn't make a mistake.
