Add subtitle font options


Hi, I love VidCoder as a Handbrake frontend, particularly since it uses the more recent SVN builds while the stable Handbrake build hasn't been updated in a year. Great work!

I'm using it a lot to hard burn Chinese subtitles for our short films released in China, since they do not have access to Youtube and the region-selected soft subtitles there. In a few cases, I see font changes in the rendered subtitles, presumably due to the font selection. You can see in the attachment - most of the text is in an Arial style sans-serif font, but the 2nd, 3rd and 9th characters (诉,乐,绝) are in a different font.

Would be great if this can be resolved by adding a font selector somewhere. Thanks!

Can't do that; the HandBrake API doesn't expose fonts for subtitles. Perhaps you could ask them about it.

Will do, thanks for the fast response!
