    Linux: Fixing bad characters in non-english language subtitles when playing video

    Hello,

    what are easiest or working ways to fix bad subtitle characters in Linux video player?

    Issue: For example i am having .srt files that seems to be in CP1250 codepage and contains ěščřž kind of diacritics characters which appears badly in Linux video player.

    What helped me was to go to main menu where is the list of Linux applications, click my video player mouse right click, select Properties, then on other tab i found path:

    mpv --player-operation-mode=pseudo-gui -- %U
    I turned it into:
    mpv --sub-codepage=windows-1250 --player-operation-mode=pseudo-gui -- %U

    If you are using mplayer, the parameter may be: --subcp cp1250

    Note that you should replace windows-1250 or cp1250 by appropriate codepage in which are your language characters usually. To find out, google: yourlanguage codepages
    Then you can read your video player manual and try to find these codepage names in it if it is supported: man playername

    Linux is a window that is fixing the bad characters in non English language subtitle when the laying of a video. The issue and the helping station are turned into the code page with the NerdyWriters windows by 1250 and some player list in the menu chart.

    Windows can be a tricky part to handle. Recently windows 11 introduced with android apps https://extratricks.com/support which can be used to run android apps on Windows Machine without any Emulators that consume heavy resources from windows pc
