Description

Summary of the bug:

After upgrading from earlier version (built on Nov 25, 2014), ffmpeg stopped finding fonts for drawtext filter.

How to reproduce:

% ffmpeg -i Test.mov -vf drawtext="fontfile=Myriad\ Pro:fontsize=45:text=test" -f mp4  -y -v verbose NUL

Error opening filters!

Same command and same system setup works for ffmpeg buit before Dec 28, 2014. The font is found and used.

Zeranoe always uses newest libraries and since FFmpeg version 2014-12-28 git-750b10f they have been compiling with Fontconfig 2.11.91 (before that it was 2.11.1).

I spent only so much time to pinpoint the problem, so I'm not sure, but I suppose the cause might be the change of type of FC_SIZE property in Fontconfig (from double to range).

Please refer to following sources:

https://github.com/FFmpeg/FFmpeg/blob/master/libavfilter/vf_drawtext.c

 if (
   FcPatternGetInteger(best, FC_INDEX, 0, &index ) != FcResultMatch ||
   FcPatternGetDouble (best, FC_SIZE, 0, &size ) != FcResultMatch) {
   av_log(ctx, AV_LOG_ERROR, "impossible to find font information");
   return AVERROR(EINVAL);
 }

In Fontconfig, FC_SIZE is now a range:

Hope that helps.
