In VLC Player, click on Settings > Preferences > (+) mark before video > (+) mark before Subtitles/OSD and then at the right hand side, put a check mark in Advanced Options(at the bottom) & you'll get an option of Force Subtitle Position. You can increase and decrease it to the position the subtitles accordingly. P.S: You can always click on Reset All at the bottom to rollback the settings to default. Good luck..

Using VLC Player for quite long now..

How To Change VLC Subtitles Settings

Aside from plethora of video/audio specific features, the best aspect of VLC is that you can customize almost everything it has to offer, be it video rendering, audio settings, effects, GPU acceleration, you can excavate deep inside it and tweak with its various features. Since many users prefer VLC for watching movies and dramas with subtitles, you may want to change the default settings to make subtitles appear in a required fashion. VLC allows its user to change subtitle text color, font size and font family, text position, and overlay effects. This post will cover changing subtitle settings in VLC. By default, it displays text having font family Arial (regular), normal font size, white font color and anOutline effect to make text look clear over the video with 0 px subtitle position which can also be changed according to video default aspect ratio. First off, head over to Preferences window, click Tools followed by Preferences.

The main Preferences window shows settings for multiple type of basic VLC elements in the left sidebar, however, if you are a power user, you can enable All option present at the bottom to reveal the advance level options as well. To begin, click Subtitles & OSD in left flank to bring all the settings related with OnScreen display and Subtitles. From Subtitle Language, you can enter preferred language along with text decoding. Changing Text Decoding option comes helpful in instance when you have subtitle decoded file not complying with VLC default Windows – 1252. From Display Settings, you can change font family, size, effect, and font color. Font families are available in great number, you can pick out one which suites you more. If you watch video on big display monitor or DVI attached home theatres, changing Font Size from normal to large would make more sense. Font color list includes only bright solid colors you can choose one according to your video. As far as text overlay effect is concerned, I like it the default way, however, Background and Fat outline are always present to replace Outline effect.

The Force subtitle position refers to changing subtitle position over the video, position can be changed by entering margin values in pixels, like if you enter 10px, subtitle will move up a bit on the video. Once you’ve done changing the settings, click Save and restart VLC. Now play a video file with subtitles to check the subtitle settings.

For changing advance settings, enable All option from left-bottom corner of Preference window. Advance Subtitles settings can be accessed from Video –> Subtitles/OSD.

Changing subtitle options and settings helps you in customizing the way subtitle appears over video in VLC. We have demonstrated the guide on VLC v.1.1.5.

VLC subtitle font sizes, how do I make them smaller?
trying to watch these anime with dual audio and all, figured out how to get the subtitles in a while ago, but they're so big they nearly cover the whole screen, tried lowering the size in the setting but it's still the same, anyone have ideas?

uhmm... actually it`s not hard at all. it depends on what programe you use to watch your movies (or animes ^^). you have to use the setings of the programme. you can modify the font size, color, type. for bs player for example you have right click-subtitles-subtitles properties. hope i helped well ... that in case the subs are not default =_=

Customizing subtitle font size

I have problems with many of the custom subs are being made on various DVD releases that are very small. I have a 20" television and has frequent trouble reading them (versus the normal retail DVDs which I can read fine). I use VLC to play and has tried to tamper with subtitle in it but it only has something to say when a file is being used as a subtitle source. Is there a way to increase the font size of subs without the need to reencode entire DVD? Why should the subs at all in the first instance be so small compared to the normal, what comes next; comic sans?
Re: Customizing subtitle font size

So you are using VLC, then try this,

Relative font size no very precise but it works.

ou can change the font size of subtitles that appear on your player. You will require Media Player Classic. By using this player you can also increase the font size, style, color and also Screen alignment and margins. How to do -

1. You will require video in AVI format and a SRT file in the same folder (name of both
files should be same). 2. Open this video with Media Player Classic.

3. Go to View -> Options. A options window will open. 4. In this window look for Subtitles and click on Default Style. It will look like -

5. Click on the Font (Arial by default ). Here you can change font size, style, color.

@Eugen6 You can do it: Tool -> Preferences -> All -> Video -> Subtitles/OSD -> Text renderer -> Font size in pixels.

You can try Freetype2 subtitle renderer from Settings -> Preferences and Video -> Subtitles/OSD and adjust font from Video -> Subtitles/OSD-> Text renderer but I am no 100% sure if it works correctly.
