KMplayer - how to change the size of the texts on screen

October 25, 2019 at 06:30:49
Specs: Windows 8
I'm not talking about subtitles.
I wanted to know how to change the size of the texts on screen, like when you press "Tab" button and it shows the information of the video file but they are really small and hard to read, or the text on the upper left side of the screen showing you the percentage of the volume but it's so small I can't even read it in full screen!

since I'm here, how do I assign a default screen size for the player? I remember the older version(which I was using until now) had an option in the screen menu of the options to assign a default screen size and if you close your player in a bigger or smaller size, the next time you launch it, the player will be in the pre-assigned size.

I know how to change the size of the subtitles, but that doesn't affect the texts I'm talking about.

The KMPlayer forum likely has more information than here...

I hope you find your answer but after that I think it would best to move on to something like VLC player which is most versatile.

VLC Player is very good, but I have to sympathize with the OP on KMPlayer. There's just a few files I have that choke VLC, but KMPlayer can handle. Granted this is on an old OS (WinXP), but it's the most common machine (other than my Samsung Tablet) that I use...

I have a few .flvs that tend to lock it up and a couple of .mp4s. Note that I said I had a few "files", not "file types". For the most part VLC handles those types fine, but there's just a few rogue files that close it down/lock it up as soon as it tries to play them.

Sorry for the misread and thanks for the info.

I've not ever run into that trouble but I'm currently on Win10 and possibly a later VLC version.

Yep, I'm sure I wouldn't have any problems with a newer version of VLC, but I reverted my laptop back to win7 (with no regrets), and VLC for Android hasn't hiccupped yet...

So for anyone interested, I found it out myself:

first of all, don't install the 64X, for some reason it doesn't have the same options menu as the other version and its options are really really really limited compared to the normal version.

but if you have the 64X version, it's under the tweaks menu in the options(by pressing the F2 button) it's called OSD and you can change the size and the font of it.
if you have the normal version of KMPlayer it has almost 20 times more options for literally everything including the OSD messages.
