VLC HowTo/Adjust subtitle font settings
|This page describes how to change font, font size, style or colour.||Other "how to" pages|
The font settings can be adjusted for plain text subtitle formats. Font settings cannot be changed for rich text (e.g. ASS) or bitmap (e.g. DVD) subtitle formats.
Go to Tools -> Preferences (set Show Settings to All) and Video -> Subtitles/OSD -> Text renderer and adjust anything you want. Font size in pixels overrides Relative font size selection.
Remember to press Save to save VLC settings and restart VLC after that to make sure changes are enabled.
For advanced users on Mac OSX only:
You may change the font directly on the preferences file, located at /Users/vivec/Library/Preferences/org.videolan.vlc/vlcrc
- Quit VLC.
- Look for property named freetype-rel-fontsize (usually on line 1938).
Remember: smaller value is bigger font.
- Enter VLC to see changes take effect
