 Arabic Subtitle now solved

hello guys

finally i have managed to get arabic subtitle to work simply by copying windows XP "arial unicode" instead of the player font, and at the same time i have to encode every arabic subtitle i'm using in UTF8

and here's the steps you should make to enable it in your players:

1-use "telenet" to connect to your player (type telnet in the run)
2-# root (to login)
3-# /bin/mount -o,remount,rw /
4-# mount
backup the original ARIALUNI.TTF font to another destination in the hard drive
5-# cp /usr/local/bin/Resource/ARIALUNI.TTF /tmp/hdd/volumes/HDD1/ARIALUNI.OLD
delete the original font from resource folder
6-# rm -rf /usr/local/bin/Resource/ARIALUNI.TTF
copy the windows "arial unicode" to player hard drive
7-in the run mode type player IP address ex.\\192.168.1.102 then paste the font inside hard drive root with name "ARIALUNI.TTF"
replace original font
8-# cp /tmp/hdd/volumes/HDD1/ARIALUNI.TTF /usr/local/bin/Resource/ARIALUNI.TTF
9-# reboot

now you have successfully replaced the original font, afterward you need to download the encoding application i'm attaching herein, and you'll need to encode every arabic subtitle by this application before placing in the same movie folder
1-install application
2-open application- file menu "batch conversion"
3-select subtitle file, press add
4-select encode from "arabic windows-1256" decode to "unicode UTF-8"
5-select output destination

copy the file resulted in the output destination to the movie folder and rename as "movie name.srt"

ENJOY :D

Hi

i do have POHD not mini, but i think my workaround should be working for both

i'll include one of my encoded subtitles so that people can rename and check if they can read it properly in their players or not, pictures will follow shortly

regards

this has nothing to do with the firmware version, the idea is about replacing the font and encoding (so it's independent from firmware)

don't know what's the point that is causing your problem, try once more and tell me at which command it's not working

otherwise i'll tell you different solution, which is you can add your subtitle as a layer to the movie using a program called "MKVtoolnix" , it'll also allow you to add more than one subtitle to the same movie

try to use it with one of your movies and tell me the results

regards

hi

don't know why you're receiving this problem, can you post the exact error msg you're receiving along with screen shot (press fn + prt scr) once you receive the msg

currently i'm using version 2901

also before trying to change the font try to use the arabic subtitle that i attached in the topic (rename to your movie.srt)
