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.

    Great, Accepted answer didn't work for me ( I didn't see Text Renderer ). I had to click Show All button to show detailed settings... – shramee Nov 9 '16 at 5:15
