Description Petr Pisar 2013-09-25 17:06:22 UTC
Recent media-libs/fontconfig-2.10.92 stabilization (bug #481824) brought a rendering regression in media-video/mplayer2-2.0_p20130126.

The mplayer2's OSD (audio volume indicator, etc.) became corrupted -- some characters instead of the special symbols (bars, etc.) are displayed instead. This issue was discussed on Arch forum <> and as stated in the last post and as I confirm hereto, subsequent media-libs/fontconfig-2.10.93 release fixes this issue (changelog <>).

I propose to stabilize media-libs/fontconfig-2.10.93 to resolve this problem.

Same here, fontconfig-2.10.93 fixes it.
Comment 2 Sergey Popov gentoo-dev 2013-10-16 15:24:30 UTC
Confirming this. Also, upgrading to media-video/mplayer2-2.0_p20130428-r1(while preserving media-libs/fontconfig-2.10.92) fixes problem as well.
Comment 3 Nuno Silva 2013-11-03 12:17:20 UTC
I confirm that upgrading to media-video/mplayer2-2.0_p20130428-r1 fixes this. I did not try upgrading fontconfig, though.
Comment 4 Nikoli 2014-01-26 20:42:25 UTC
Petr, i suggest to use mpv instead of mplayer2: a lot other bugs are fixed in it.
