Can't ignore subtitle font
I'm trying to use default subtitles and font with an MP4 that comes with its own subtitles and styling, but "Ignore font specified in SSA subtitles" and "Ignore broken fonts..." do nothing. The font specified by the MP4 is horribly jagged and yellow. And yes, they're optional subtitles, disableable.

can you share the content?

Ignore fonts specified in SSA is applicable only to SSA or ASS subtitles. If your video has some other subtitle formats, it may still use the styles mentioned in the sub.

thanks

EDIT
one other issue - on my car bluetooth, the song info (artist, title, etc) do not show on the car screen... but it does with other players. any chance this also gets fixed with the next update?

hello... just wanted to see if there are any thoughts to the questions above? much thanks in advance.

It seems that's the problem. I checked Media Information with VLC and it says the subtitles are "DVD Subtitles (spu)". I researched SPU and it seems it's not in text but in bitmap format. That makes it more difficult, it seems.

new beta version does not properly resume playback from where it left off.

also, the new beta version shuts down when chrome is hibernated with greenify. this is not an issue with the pro version.

also, for those that purchased the pro version

not sure if the 2 issues outlined above were fixed in the recent beta release. if so, just want to report that they are both not working.

EDIT 2

the first 3 items at the top are in reference to mx player beta, NOT mx player pro beta. all 3 are non-issues in mx player pro beta.

also, for those that purchased the pro version, it would be nice to have the ads removed. or have the beta as the pro version. would seem to make sense that the player should be ad-free for those that purchased the pro version.

thanks for all the great work.

My recently updated beta version does resume playback just fine, my last played and currently played files are marked and working correctly from inside every folder, as expected. It is also the ad-free pro version, which was directly available through my Play Store account. Are you using a different install/update method than the regular Play Store?
Greenify has also not been a problem but, then again, I don't use Chrome.

my beta version is the regular, not pro. there was no pro beta version available. installed through google play store.

EDIT

just saw the pro beta version. thanks for highlighting that.

Is or will there be support for 4k displays, like xperia zx premium? The player shows ~50% scaling when playing 4k video in fullscreen, wich should not be the case for a 4k display

Hi. I have 3 questions.

1) Since last few versions there is a new alternative hw+ decoder mode available in settings. It is supposed to be default in Android 7 & some HTC devices. Now my phone runs Android 6, so which one should I use ? (Normal HW+ or Alternative HW+). What is the technical difference between both & which one is better?

2) I was trying to play a video with embedded SSA (SubStation Alpha) subtitles. But the subtitle timing is broken, some lines appear early, some late & some lines don't appear at all. I tried same with VLC and the subtitle timing was perfect (for same file). So does anyone else have this problem? Does developer know about it?

3) VLC already has arm8 optimized version (as of August 2016). But even its 1 year after MX still doesn't have arm8 builds. Any progress? Or abandoned?
