I have found a bug with subtitles.

At the left, sub renderer by vlc.
At the right, same problem with mpc-hc sub renderer and xysubfilter

The bug is in the subtitle itself. It uses a font that does not contain that music note character, nor has a compatible fallback font.

These renderers do not support replacing missing glyphs and it also can not be added easily.

If that's how it is, it's the typesetter's fault. Unfortunately, something like that is not so uncommon...

A quick (possibly ugly) workaround for an XySubFilter user may be "Force Default" in the Main tab of XySubFilter. A pre-set Default font, Arial, does support U+266B ♫. If MPC-HC + Internal sub renderer, then Right-click > Subtitle Tracks > Enable Default. Either way, you may have to tweak the Default style (like font size, or font name if you don't like Arial). Common Windows fonts that support this code point include: Arial & Times New Roman.

A real solution is, editing the subtitle data and changing ♫ to {\fnLucida Console}♫{\fn}, for example. There is another solution using {\p}, directly drawing the glyph; but that's rather complicated and not really softsub-friendly, while more flexible (you can draw any symbols, not even in Unicode).

"Force Default" potential issue

Even if you enable "Force Default" in the Properties, \r-based user-side styles from SSA/ASS can't be overridden.
Tested: XySubFilter 3.2.0.806 (git) xy-VSFilter.

MPC-BE + Internal subtitle renderer can do this overriding perfectly.

I can't make it work for me for the life of me. I've been using the 2.41.322 with the exe installer and that version works fine. I can select it in MPC-HC and MPC-BE. Also have it in the list in the External filters. But when I use this .bat installer nothing happens, like it's not installed. It even says **not installed** in the Subtitle renderer seletion. What am I duing wrong?!

From Readme.txt:
Quote:
Right-click Install_XySubFilter.bat and select "Run as administrator"
Did you do that or simply double clicked the .bat file?

Also, if you use 32-bit player then you need to install 32-bit filter; if you use 64-bit player then you need to install 64-bit filter.
