Hi. I tried playing a video whose language is both English and Korean. So the subtitle file has both:
? instead of foreign subtitles IegzVnH
The problem is that when playing I see ? instead of the proper foreign character.
? instead of foreign subtitles UUYX0uD

I was thinking and that is most likely caused by the fact that the subtitle font doesn't have any Korean characters. Is it possible to have a separate font for Latin and a separate font for Korean/Chinese/... characters for one video with one subtitle file in order for the subtitles to display properly?

Because the way I think it works is that MPC-HC chooses its font by looking at what language the subtitle file is:
? instead of foreign subtitles WDFFQjR
So if the subtitle file's language is English it's gonna choose the Latin font and if it's Korean it's going to choose the Hangul font. But is there a way to have both fonts, mixed?

Choosing fonts based on language is not possible, nor reliable since in your example it is English. However, certain fonts have a fallback to other fonts when it doesn't contain a character.

Try changing the font to "Calabri" here:
Options > Subtitles > Default Style

Let me know if that improves things. Then the default might get changed.

Well I tried it but it does not seem to help. Guess I'll just have to live with it.
But thanks for the quick answer! ;d

I think you can close the thread now

It may be complicate but it need font fallback for individual glyphs like browsers.
