Subtitle brightness setting

#1

I had expected this would be a much requested feature, but …

Watching HDR10 movies on an OLED isn’t the most pleasing activity. The subtitles are very bright at maximum luminance. A setting to lower the brightness of subtitles would be a great addition.

Thank you.

This is something we can take a look at in the future.

Thank you.

It seems a much longer requested feature. Adding >font color="#808080"< to every line of subtitle would spoil the movie and takes an enormous amount of time.

Searched some more. It seems adding this feature will make a lot of people very happy. :wink: I hope it isn’t extremely difficult to incooperate.

I have an idea but I’m trying not to spend too much time on the old kernel when we might be able to get 4.9 out in the foreseeable future.

Yes, this seems to work. Great suggestion and for me a good option, since I download all subtitles manualy.

I’d also appreciate a feature to dim bright white subtitles in HDR. It’s not an emergency but it would be nice.

Setting the subtitle colour to Blue rather than Grey dims them to acceptable levels.
