That's my question: How can I change the subtitles font size in VLC Media Player? I try with Preferences > Video > Subtitles/OSD, but I can't find an option to change the font characteristics.

In Linux the option is clearly visible.


Do you have the latest version of VLC?

I've just updated my version and see that screen. Now it works, but I need to write the Font path manually, "Browse" don't keep the selection. –  JuanZe Feb 13 '10 at 20:42
Changing font size in windows does not change font size –  Anders Lindén Jul 24 '13 at 14:00

Set "show settings" to Full, then go to Video > Subtitles/OSD > Text renderer - there you can change the font size in pixels.
