[vlc-devel] [PATCH]Oversized subtitles

Hi Hannes,

In relation to the problem, I never actually said the problem was 
restricted to x11 - I said it was occurring when the video module passed 
through dimensions which equated to the real screen dimensions of the area 
to render in, not the dimensions of the original source video. The x11 
driver was the only example I found doing this, but I don't deny that 
others might do it also, especially as I didn't test the windows video 
modules as I was running under linux at the time. As I said before, 
though, I like what these modules are doing, though, and don't see this as 
a problem. With any luck we can come up with a fix that gives us some 
better looking text than we've had previously.
I've tested the changes you've made to the patch and I'm not able to see 
the results of the change. Again I'm not saying there isn't an issue - 
just that I haven't been able to see it. When I run the ass file you 
supplied with a source video of 1280 x 960 I get the same results with my 
original code as with your modified version. Could you please send me some 
screenshots that show the nature of the problem and the results after 
you've corrected it? (Probably better to send to me direct rather than 
bother the list with this though). I also found identical results between 
your code and mine when I modified the ass so that it did match the video 
resolution - in both cases we got smaller writing.

Re: [vlc-devel] [PATCH]Oversized subtitles


first of all: i've had the problem with the oversized
subtitles on windows, so i don't think this has much
to do with the x11 module.

then again, i tested your patch and had some problems
with some ass-files where the video-resolution was not
the same as the one specified in the file (PlayResX
and PlayResY).

attached are my solution and one of the problem-files
(this one was with a 1280x960-video).
