Bangla subtitle(connected letter) problem in VLC and gnome-mplayer

Ask Ubuntu Asked by shantanu on December 5, 2020

I am trying to run a srt file written in unicode Bangla. I have changed the encoding settings to UTF-8 and select a Bangla unicode font in VLC subtitle settings.

I can see normal letter but not connected letters (i.e ক + ে = কে). Same thing is happening in gnome-mplayer.

Is any media player can render complex Bangla unicode in screen?

Note: I already installed Bangla Language/support package.

Go to preference in VLC. Head over to Subtitles/OSD option. Set the font as Lohit Bengali(Like this).

VLC have some issue with .srt format try using .ass subtitle file. You can rename a .srt to .ass as well, or You can try mpv player

To install:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mc3man/mpv-tests
sudo apt update && sudo apt install mpv

To uninstall:

sudo apt remove mpv && sudo apt autoremove

you can use smplayer to solve bangla subtitle problem in ubuntu and other linux operating systems

  1. install smplayer and set it as a default player

  2. click right button of your mouse and go to smplayer's preferences

  3. Encoding: select UTF-8
  4. check Try to autodetect for this language and select Bengali(bn)
  5. Apply and Ok
  6. if subtitle is too small press Shift+T to enlarge, and Shift+R to make it small..

now everything ok....
