this bug has ticked me off to no end on new installs for quite a while now. the new 3.0 version of vlc is supposed to be out "soon", maybe they'll have it nuked. 8)

Not sure if this will help... https://imgur.com/a/nQ2r4

Try changing the font to dejavu and set font size 24. Don't forget to exit vlc and restart it before testing.

Looks like vlc 3 is working its way into the tree... haven't tested it yet myself, but here's hoping they fixed their text problem. :lol:
