Summary0000544: Subtitles disappear on pause when using with PotPlayer
DescriptionI do not know if this is PotPlayer bug or MadVR but subtitles disappear in randomly in 30% of cases on pause.

The bug occurs with only MadVR render not other renders.
Steps To Reproduce1. Open any video with subtitles.
2. When you see some dialoge with subtitle pause the video.
3. Because the bug occurs randomly in 30% of cases you may need play and pause many times to reproduce. Try at least 10 times.
4. After disapearing when you play again subtitles come back. But I have stopped the video because wanted to read dialoge more thoroughly and if I play again then I have no time to read it. I jump to 5 seconds back and try play it again but when I pause the video it disapears again :( I need to pause and play many times to make it showing on pause.
Additional InformationThe bug is very old (more than 2 years).

PS. I do not know if "Desktop Composition" is enabled.

Using which subtitle renderer? Have you tried XySubFilter?

I did not even know there is many subtitle renderers :) Where can I see it?

Also am I right that to change it I just need install new filter and add it in the PotPlayer settings?

I'm not a PotPlayer expert, unfortunately, so I'm not sure how to change the subtitle renderer in PotPlayer. Is there a PotPlayer support forum somewhere, where you could ask for help about this?

AFAIK, PotPlayer's internal subtitle renderer is based on MPC-HC's internal subtitle renderer. And the MPC-HC internal subtitle renderer used to have the same problem, but it was solved in a newer MPC-HC build, I think. So I'm pretty sure this is a problem with the internal PotPlayer subtitle renderer. So replacing it with a different one is likely to solve the problem.

Alternatively you could try to ask the PotPlayer dev to look into it. Maybe he can include some of the MPC-HC subtitle renderer improvements into PotPlayer?

Closed because it's most probably a problem with PotPlayer, not madVR's fault.
