To show movie with Korean subtitle

2007.10.04 00:42 | Posted by bar4mi
I installed many movie players such as Totem, Xine, Mplayer.
Just because I didn't know what player is best to show Korean subtitle.

Yesterday, I tried to show Korean subtitle on Totem player.
I had knew that Totem is two types in debain packages.
One was to use Xine and the other was to use Gstreamer to play a movie.
It was very simple to show a movie if I used Xine. But, I can't show Korean subtitle on Totem-xine.
I had to make a separate font to show Korean subtitle on Totem-xine.
But I couldn't show Korean subtitle in spite of my efforts.

Finally, I asked ganadist what should I do.
He recommended me to use Totem-gstreamer.

I installed packages such as below.
totem-gstreamer
gstreamer0.10-alsa
gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg-full
gstreamer0.10-pitfdll
gstreamer0.10-plugins-base
gstreamer0.10-plugins-good
gstreamer0.10-plugins-really-bad
gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly

Next, I installed 'w32codecs' package to support movie's codecs.
apt-get install w32codecs

Last, I edited the totem configuration(~/.gnome2/totem_config).
#decoder.external.win32_codecs_path:/usr/lib/codecs
decoder.external.win32_codecs_path:/usr/lib/win32


After all I could show a movie with Korean subtitle.^^
