Vobsub Position

Post by Uni » Tue Aug 28, 2018 8:04 am

Hi everyone
Is it possible to change position for Vobsub (Subtitles) ?
subrip works great and i can change direct in UMS Settings>Transcode Settings>Mencoder>Margin%

my Setup:
UMS Version 7.3.0
using mencoder for Movies Stream to PS3

Vobsub are picture based subtitles. There is no way in the UMS to change position for them. Only for text based subtitles e.g. SUBRIP, TEXT, MICRODVD or WEBVTT is possible to set the position.
