In last years many movies came with hardcore subtitles . When we choose external subtitles and black background to hide the hardcore subtitles the problem is that the black background is from side to side and do not covers only the subtitles ....On windows with the media player classic (it's media player) the black always follow Only the subtitles ....See the image below

With black background on mx player ... (the black is from side to side)

And last and best solution ...on windows with the media player classic
The black background covers always Only the subtitles !!

I was about to make the same topic
I want subtitles box to cover only subtitles not the entire screen.
So that it looked like this:

@Thirumalai.K can you give any ETA on when this update is going to be made? It's been almost 3 months since @alex22280 brought up this problem.

Yeah, you're always working on other issues but this is important as well.
There are many movies with hardcoded subs and watching them with your own subtitles is real pain in the ass.
Besides, I don't think it's hard to implement or time consuming. It's just a simple opaque box which is a standard feature in all available players.
I paid for mx player pro and I'm not eager to wait a year or more until you fix it.
As I said, it may look as a not important issue but it is not. Now I can't watch movies on mx player because subtitles overlap each other and it's all confusing and doesn't look nice.
So basically mx player is useless right now when it comes to watching hardsubbed movies.

Please fix it in the next release of mx-player pro.

We have included this feature on v1.9.18.2 & released it for the open beta testers. You can set the custom text background colour through Settings > Subtitles > Text or through the Subtitles menu on the playback screen.

Note: Due to the complex nature of the bitmap based subs, Currently this will work only with text-based subs like srt, ssa.

Greeting for the new option. Impatiently wait for a new version when it appear. Good job guys ??

I hope that in the new version, background transparent will be in the size of the (fit) subtitles, and the background transparent not to be all the time in the video while no subtitles are active.
Greetings.

And it would be nice if it can slightly increase transparent background. Precisely, custom set option in settings for increase transparent background.

Greetengs.
