#4190 closed enhancement (wontfix)

offer internal font for drawtext

Reported by: dave rice Owned by:

Summary of the bug:

I propose supporting an interal font for use with drawtext so that drawtext is possible to use without a font file. I suggest an open licensed, fixed width, generic font.

I do notice that a font is used in ebur128=video=1. Is there a method to call this font from drawtext?

You can build ffmpeg with fontconfig then default font should be used.
ebur128 use "ugly" fixed type fonts.

even getting the ugly fixed font used by ebur128 and showvolume would be better than nothing (by default) in drawtext.

drawtext should just use libass, which is going to have native windows and OSX font lookup backends soon.
