(vlc ticket 13701)
I will attach an ass file that contains an embedded font with a logo.
mplayer -ass shows the logo in the initial subtitles, FFmpeg does not.

$ ffmpeg -f lavfi -i color=d=20 -vf ass=test.ass -qscale 2 out.avi

This has been on my wishlist for a long time so I'm excited to see interest in it!
In my project which uses FFmpeg (Universal Media Server) we have logic that defers to MEncoder when embedded subtitles are present, otherwise use FFmpeg, so it would be really cool to be able to remove that condition and rely more on FFmpeg :)

This is supported by subtitles filter (same source file) by probing the font stream(s) from the source (you can do something like -vf subtitles=foo.mkv), so that's probably relatively easy to adjust the ass filter to do that as well.

Care to send a patch for that?
